    The good life??.... Health, happiness, my children, finding contentment inside myself, family, friends, a comfortable roof over my head, a full belly and to live in this incredibly beautiful country!

    Wouldnt change a thing, blessed and grateful for what life I have been given & made

    Mostly though, a sense of community. Somewhere where its ok to drop by with a cake and have a cuppa. Where everyone knows the corner shop and butcher and theres community events like dances, bingo and fetes.
    This is our life you've described and I fear I spend too much time complaining about it lately. You've given me a good reminder to be grateful!!

    Happiness/being content - you can have all the money and material possessions in the world and still be miserable. I want my kids to be happy.

    Holidays - short breaks, trips overseas etc.

    Financially secure - to not have to worry about and calculate every cent we spend, yet teach our kids to respect money.

    Work - to enjoy your work.

    Live in a nice house in an area you like. We live 5 mins from the beach, 15mins from city which has loads of things to do and you don't have to travel for ages to do basic things, we live close to nature walks, loads of playgrounds. I like that we live in a really multicultural area so my kids can be friends with lots of different people with lots of different origins.


    We are pretty fortunate to tick all these boxes.

    Good life for me would be able to say. 'Lets do this! Or Let's Go here!' And no I could do it without having to worry about money.

    I have a pretty good life
    I'd like to have a bit more money to fix our house and to get solar panels etc. but it's all still achievable, it'll just take longer

    Yes in South Australia. Plenty of places to live that life here!
