Serendipity is finding something wonderful where you didn’t expect to find it. My name is Fran (that’s why the “narf”…) and I live with my husband Steve (aka “Stevie-boy”) on 4 steep and rocky acres on the Tamar River in Tasmania Australia. Our property is home to any manner of waifs and strays at any given time. We are middle aged student hippies who are attempting to live a more sustainable, less wasteful life. This blog is so that we can document and share what we are doing here in case anyone else might be interested and our experiments, failures and triumphs might just help someone else avoid the pitfalls. We like to approach life with humour and wine (often in equal measure).
