editor’s letter

(Photograph by Maree Homer (Lisa).) the pastime of house perving when driving through cities, suburbs and rural and coastal towns is not unique to my family. But I still raised an eyebrow when our 10-year-old said he and his mates were nominating their favourite houses while riding their bikes around a seaside holiday hamlet recently. Little does he know it’s a lifelong fascination!Traversing our land is not the predictable journey it once was. A street lined with tidy bungalows of the same era with shrubs to match is almost an oddity. Prosperity, planning laws, new materials, new thinking and different building practices mean that heritage areas aside, pretty much anything goes. The outcome is streetscapes that can prompt surprise, delight and despair, depending on your view.The most visible change in…

your h&g

Family value How fabulous to get some ideas from H&G about pairing treasured heirlooms with other items in the home (Back To Life, April). My childhood home was an old Queenslander, a house my parents lived in for more than 50 years, so there was always going to be many memories from the house that emanated from furniture and other paraphernalia.When the house was sold after my father went into care, I gave each of my children some of the furniture I had inherited. My son told me that when he first opened the drawer of the silky-oak buffet I gave him, the scent reminded him of Oma’s (my mother’s) house and the times he spent there as a child. My eldest daughter used Oma’s Singer…

life & style

MY FIRST (ADULT) HOME I moved to Sydney from Toowoomba, Queensland, in 2004 after Tim and I were married. We rented a sweet little one-bedder in Balmain [in Sydney’s inner west]. It had a lovely leafy courtyard off the living room and bedroom that opened onto a common garden full of enormous fig trees. FIRST CAR Ah, Bertie. A yellow 1982 Datsun my parents bought back in the day. I invested all my weekend-waitressing savings in a new engine to get him on the road. He retired to Tim’s family farm in Gunnedah, NSW, in 2006. DREAM CAR I am obsessed with the new Mercedes Marco Polo. It’s like the cutest Barbie campervan you’ve ever seen!
