Wow, I'm excited by the number of posts and replies on here. Why did I not know about this sooner?
I'm Catherine, 41, originally from the south of England but living here near to Wollongong, NSW for the last 8 years. As well as having a veggie garden and chickens where I live (rental) and being involved with a localpermaculture community group, I spend my time surfing, playing music and fixing up camper vans. Oh and working too, when I have to! I do cleaning and Spanish translation. I share a house with a few people now and slowly saving up a little money for the permaculture / tiny-house / homesteading pipe-dream. The problem is I love the ocean too much and I can't imagine moving inland, but the cost of coastal land is also kinda prohibitive. Oh and if I had a tiny house I might need a big shed too, I'm too good at collecting bits and pieces of 'useful' junk!
In any case, a great start would be to meet a like-minded man who understood where I was coming from and where we might go together. I did kinda want to have kids, I may have left it too late but I'm still open to the possibility. If you want to know more, look me up on OkCupid 'SurfMusicAction'
Here's hoping everyone finds what they're looking for!
