Your hosts, Heather and Graham Dean, we met on their first day at school, aged 4 and 5 Years old, in Swindon, England. Having gone our separate ways in late teens and early 20’s, we met again and started our life together in 1990.
In 1991, the opportunity to come to Melbourne for Grahams work (I.T.) occurred and we jumped at it with our 5 month old baby girl. 4 years in Melbourne, thinking we were going home, the chance came up to move to Sydney. While in Sydney, we added our son to the family, and became Australian, but after 7 years, we returned to Melbourne.
Finally, after years in the corporate life for Graham and with Heathers home design business going well, our children left home, and in 2016 we looked for more. We wanted to spend more time together, and more time as part of a real community, and that’s when this journey and adventure in Strathalbyn SA began.
As well as Heather and Graham, you will meet, Jake “the meet and greet dog”, Amber the beautiful black cat, and the chickens and canaries (we can introduce you by name when you are here).
