This is us, the day we left our beautiful loved, cosy, safe home in search of the Peach Palace. There’s a lot of us as you can tell and I am still on the hunt for the ever elusive photo where we are all looking in the same direction but that’s real life. Mr Peach and I are both Dentists so spend our days gum gardening and extracting. By night we spend our spare hours writing lists, planning budgets, sourcing tradesmen and wondering what on earth we’ve let ourselves in for.
Here we are, twins Maxwell & Felix 6, Toby 2 and Daisy Dot 8 months. Chris and myself, I will leave you to guess.
I’m going to admit it right now, we entered this journey completely and utterly clueless. We saw a beautiful house oozing with potential and character and got completely sucked in. We also felt that the house chose us in a way. Mr Smith the owner had heaps of interest but just wouldn’t sell, we turned up, a riot of noise and chaos and another baby on board and for some reason he chose us. I like to think that we are making him proud of his choice. There are times throughout this renovation journey when I know he would have been head in hands crazy with us but like I said, we were clueless. If you’d walked past us in the street you would have smelt the novice seeping out of us. We’ve had to learn quick and fast and often the hard way but we’ve also had times where we’ve been so excited we could burst and times where we were unable to stop buzzing from the thrill of it. We wanted to create something special, something bold and riotous and loud just like our family. So here is our story, hopefully one that will inspire you to have the confidence to do it yourself. If Team Peach can do it with no experience, full time jobs and 4 kids in tow then why the heck can’t you! What. A. Journey.
