I am married we have 2 girls both married with children, 2 boys - 1 is a teacher in Belgium married with 2 boys, the other is a musician in Melbourne. We have lived on this farm for 35 years; I am retired, I worked as an Engineer in the mining industry for the last 18 years.
The farm is 25 acres, we have Angus cattle and cut hay on the property. We have a cottage we rent through AirBNB, The main house has is 2 storey and there is a large garden area.
I have been used to doing most jobs myself, but enjoy working with someone, as my sons have left home there have been lots of jobs left undone. Over the last 6 years we have travelled to Europe foe a couple of months each year. I have a large shed which I hope to set up for craft work, Pottery, Painting and Leadlight.
We emmigrated in 1970 from UK, I lived in Wales worked, walked and Rock Climbed to a reasonable standard, hitch hiked through europe an climbed in Norther Italy.
