About us

Hanno and I met in Queensland in 1976, married in his homeland of Germany and now live on the Sunshine Coast on the east coast of Australia.  We have two amazing sons and three grandchildren.

We chose to retire early and live simply, growing food and making what we needed instead of buying it. Our days were enriching, productive and meaningful and you can read about it on the blog.  
Hanno died of brain cancer on 25 May, 2022. Now I'm writing about my situation and ageing and how I adjusted to the changes. I'm still living simply but in a different way.
