Ostend, Auckland Central

About Ostend:

Ostend is a community on Waiheke Island in New Zealand's Hauraki Gulf, in the Auckland Region. 

A causeway that spans Putiki Bay's western arm connects Ostend to Surfdale. Boatsmen moor their boats on the beach since it is easily accessible from the mainland marina at Half Moon Bay.

Ostend is home to the island's only supermarket (Countdown), an Auckland council branch office, the Baptist church, and a medical centre. It is recognised as the island's industrial sector.

According to the 2018 New Zealand census, Ostend had a population of 1,905 people and 771 households.

What most don’t know is this trip to Waiheke came at just the right time. It wasn’t just a getaway to drink wine and feel fancy.

This trip came just a few days after I abruptly took two weeks off of work during our busy season. Certainly not my style but it turns out burnout isn’t just for full time freelancers and business owners like I wanted to believe. Burnout comes to those who like me think all the time they’re just fine when sometimes we’re just not.

This past year and half has been emotional and hard for all of us and what I have really learned is that you don’t always have to be okay. You don’t always have to just stick it out and taking a break to look after yourself is actually okay.

I laughed until I cried on this trip. I breathed deep and I cherished the present with the amazing people I had around me.

The future is still a bumpy ride but let this be a reminder that it’s okay to take a break. Whether that is an extended time or a routine thing, it is ever so important that we look after ourselves. ✨

We’re SO thankful to tomik_architectural_builders to have their awesome building team for our house! They’ve worked SO hard and I’ve enjoyed seeing them every day and chatting to them on site. It almost makes me want to build another one!

This week on the block: 😉
🏠 Our interior is being painted 🤗 which looks incredible!! (Can’t wait to take you on another tour of the house this weekend)
🏠 Our tiler has started laying our terrazzonz tile flooring!! I’m currently sitting down and choosing what grout colour we will use to match it 🙂 it looks beautiful!
🏠 Our carpet gets laid next week (I think) and then it will look like a proper home!

Sooo close!!! X
