The Things I Loved About Living In West End

The gorgeous old homes.

Our bike rides into the city.

 Justine's 'Haloumi Special'.
Posto, Boundary St, West End.

Something was always happening.
The flood made sure of that.



What Bill taught my boys about life.

The sunrises from my deck.

The cute little streets.

The unexpected...

... every day...

...only in West End!

Bill's artwork.

RIP... he was cut loose by vandals and floated out to sea.

The view from my bedroom.

The view from Justine's coffee shop..... my 'office'.

The western sun in my living room.

Our walks along the river.

Our groovy apartment.

The river.

The food.

My early morning runs...rain, fog and shine.

The sunsets.

This is where home is though.

Happy Monday!
We're movin'.



  1. So many good memories wherever we may be. And that so cool coz we keep them in our hearts, FOREVER.

    I can't wait to see your new habitat AM with my 2 Mr. AM's...

    Hugs for a brand new life.

    God Bless you always,

    Greetings from freezing Stockholm,

  2. Memories of West End will stay in your heart forever A-M.

  7. Great memories of a great spot. You'll make great new memories in your new spot. We look forward seeing it x

  8. Beautiful visual way to sum up the things that brought you joy throughout your stay there (so happy that duck made a guest appearance in the pictures). Home is where you find it and make it though....soon enough you'll be snapping and blogging the new "office" and treasures you find as you settle into your new home. Best of luck, looking forward to your new home!

  9. Good luck with your move A-M. May it be problem-free and a fun adventure. xx

  15. A-M, Only the best of luck with your move.
    Hope you have found a new home that inspires you as much as West End has.
    If through your move you think to yourself "why is this all so hard". Take a look at what you just posted and image what will come to you in the year ahead.
    Life is a journey full of suprises in places we least expect.
    All my best wishes,
    Daryl Wark

  16. Best of luck with the move A-M. Hope you and the boys get settled soon.

    I LOVE West End and will miss it too (which is odd since I have never set foot there) thanks to your reverie.

    What an impressive study nook you had! Hope you can make a similar space in the new place.

    Love those gorgeous, joyful faces!

  17. Best wishes for the move and a happy settling in!
    The memories will always be with you and just think now you will have a new place to explore and new friends to make! xx
