Hello! I’m so glad you’ve dropped by.
I am Lily Boot – mother to Noah, wife to Julian, & 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, and a wonky eared rabbit.
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!
