    that is GREAT news Mo! I too am happy for you, it looks like a really cosy romantic place to live and work, cheers xxx

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Saskia))) such a relief, I had almost given up on the hunt last Wenesday after catching the train up to Blackheath every week to look at houses for 2 months, applying for them and then not getting them, this one will work out just fine!

  4. Margaret Johnson says:

    Onya Mo.. Was keeping my fingers crossed for you! (didn’t say anything before in case I mozzed you) Looks like a great space, a separate studio…WOW. have fun moving…oxox

  5. Nancy says:

    MO!!!!! Yay!!!! This is the best news ever!! I am so happy for you! This cottage is so charming! ❤️ Lots of exclamation points over here! May your move go smoothly and your many days there be filled with joy! Much love to you. xo

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Nancy))) looking back at the other 7 houses I had applied for there were little problems that needed work arounds but this one is purrfect, I’ll be on easy street!

  6. nemo-ignorat says:

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Beth))) when I got the news form the agent I was so excited I hardly sleep that night, what with waking up every hour to scribble more things down on the to do list & am getting through it easy!

  9. Martine Bos says:

    Dear Mo i’m so happy for you…………….

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Martine))) sorted the garden here yesterday, gave all the plants that won’t tolerate frost to neighbours and repotted the few that can make the move. There’s a whole new world of gardening in a cool climate to explore, ordered some Blue Tibetan Poppy aka Meconopsidss baileyi seeds on Saturday to plant first up!

  10. Marti says:

    HELLO Blackheathen Mo:

    You so deserve this charming place…you worked long and hard to find your place and you did it! I am already imagining all that you will create in your studio. Happiness all over the place for you. spacious home and grounds and what amazing, wild and wonderful views.

    In honor of your new home, 84 Hat Hill Road, I’ve put on one of my garden hats, wish I had a top hat and am dancing around humming a tune from an old movie, Top Hat, (Fred Astaire), dancing in joy for you, singing a bit of the song,

    “Puttin’ down my top hat
    Mussin’ up my white tie
    Dancin’ in my tails”

    And I might add, raising my glass to say, Welcome Home.

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Mart))) your welcome home brings a tear to my eye of joy tinged with sadness as I say goodbye to this beautiful old lady of a house, the best years of my life with Old Man Crow were here.

  11. grace says:

    YES!!!!!!! I AM SO EXCITED to watch you settle in, just so great!

  12. deemallon says:

    CONGRATS!! So happy for you. It’s a sweet little place and I’m sure you’ll make it homey and beautiful!

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Dee))) there’s a lot of boxes of materials that need to be turned into Art, I don’t want to have to move this much stuff ever again!

  13. Hazel says:

    Hooray for you!!! Checked here all day yesterday, hoping for happy news! Just swell!!!

  14. Liz A says:

    such wonderful news … the 8th time’s the charm, eh?

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Liz))) in all my years of renting houses it has never taken me 2 months to find a place, the rules change a lot when your a 67 year old woman on the Age Pension! The agent for this one was the same agent I applied with for the first one at 1a Kanimbla Road Blackheath. I learned a lot about how to present & what to say on the forms after filling out 8 tenancy applications!

  15. dinahmow says:

    Oh! So very happy for you, Mo.

  16. (((Mo))) Hugging you so happily

  17. Graham Griffith says:
