Hello! I’m so glad you’ve dropped by.
I am Lily Boot – mother to Abigail, wife to Julian, & newly Registered Nurse.
Around these busy roles I squeeze in my other passions – patchwork, quilting, embroidery, knitting, crochet, reading, and the restoring of old furniture.
At the moment we are living in a sweet little bungalow on a busy tramline in one of Melbourne’s inner suburbs, along with our dear little dog Fu, two sweet rabbits, and one plucky chicken. Here, Abby’s just about to finish high school, Julian’s hard at work building an IT company, and I’ve just begun my career as a Registered Nurse at a major public hospital. Yes it’s taken me until 44 to work out just what I want to be when I grow up!
But in our near future we hope to move to the glorious Far South Coast of New South Wales – to the Bega Valley – where we will be close to family and the beautiful Pacific Ocean. Here we hope to find a lovely block of land, build the strawbale home of our dreams, and create a gentle life with lots of self sufficiency, creativity and laughter.
Here at block-a-day I chronicle our lives in a way that I hope will delight us when we are old and grey and wobbly of memory, and perhaps it will inspire you too.
I love to read your comments – such a lovely way to connect with kindred spirits – and endeavour to answer questions within the day’s comment section.
I can be contacted at lily (at) blockaday (dot) com. Thanks for visiting!
