It looks like we’ve got ourselves a house! It’s not large or luxurious – no en suites, pools or spa baths. But I don’t care – it’s ours. I feel so much better. Just knowing that we have some certainty is great. It means I can start putting our daughter down for local kinders when she turns two, and have a look at the local primary school.
I am really looking forward to having a place where we can do stuff to it – put paintings up where we want, paint the walls the colours we like (present place has grey walls, yuck) and put in a vegie garden. We tried to make a vegie garden at our current place, but as there are a lot of pine trees, it never worked very well, although we did get some small potatoes once.
We’ll have to scrimp and save for a bit, I think, but it’s worth it. So much happier! Sorry for being a bit of a snark for the last month or two.
