About Me

 last day of work

Hi there!

I’m Sandra and my home is a small off-grid cabin in the bush in southern Tasmania.  Taking a leap and embracing a simpler lifestyle made it possible for me to retire early in 2011.  This picture is me on my last day at work, barely able to contain my happiness!

Reluctantly at first my man joined me and then a year later was ecstatic to be made redundant (from work that is, not by me!).

I’ve been working at making a critter proof garden to grow our vegetables, flowers, berries and a few fruit trees.

I’ll be sharing stories about simple living, our small house and off-grid lifestyle.  Hope you’ll be interested in my vegan recipes, attempts at art, craft and decorating and other things I get up to.

When the cabin fever gets too serious I escape for adventures!
