    Hello from Melbourne

    Hi everyone, super pleased to have found this forum. Married for 23 years with two children who are finding their own feet as adults, one still at home. Seriously needing to reevaluate and simplify my lifestyle, possessions, and work to enjoy this new stage of life. Not good at change so hoping to benefit from the comments and threads on here.

    Cheers, Ian

    Do you know of Rhonda over there? (I know it's a huge continent.) https://down---to---earth.blogspot.com/

    When I discovered her blog, I went back to the very beginning and read my way forward. Soooo much good information provided by her.

    Hello! Nice to see you. Many of us have found simple living later in our lives. I'm sure you'll find lots of information here. I'm looking forward to seeing your questions and comments!

    Welcome, Ian! Not sure that you aren't the first from Australia among us. Look forward to your posts.

    I used to follow a woman's blog, "Down-to-Earth," by Rhonda Hetzel, who was from the Sunshine Coast. Her blog was just so full of homekeeping and suburban farm skills advice and wonderful stories and photos. I was so disappointed when she shut it down. You still can find it and look at the content, though.

    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    And so glad Rhonda is blogging again. I thought she had "retired".
