Just so many things going on lately. No time to blog!

  • The melbourne storms yesterday, i was stuck outside in nunawading then they happened. Hubby and I quickly ducked under cover to wait it out. Lucky too because just as we got under the giant hail stones started coming. Our rental place in Maidstone was ok on our return but it took a very long time to get back there ┬ábecause all the usual routes were either flooded or blocked up by people trying to get out of the city. We ended up hiding out in a restaurant until things settled down but in the meantime i was very worried about my dog back at home (she was ok btw).
  • We did the final inspection for our new house yesterday! Only one week to go until we take hold of the keys. I’m counting down the days and bouncing around with excitement! Finally, a place of our own where we can make the modifications we want. After 7 years of renting I cannot wait. Some of the new bank cards associated with the mortgage package came last week and it’s all starting to feel more real. Hello ball and chain. I’ve been sitting round working and reworking a budget and am glad we’re good for rates to rise 4 or 5% before we start stressing.
  • Set down a chunk of funds for a bed set from Focus On Furniture ­čÖé After looking for months i finally found something i liked, and I think my husband has been getting tired of me saying i didn’t want anything i saw. It’s due to arrive next monday so no more sleeping on a mattress on the ground for us anymore. And matching side tables. Oh how i loathe the old furniture.
  • The real estate agent found someone to take over our lease at the old place a few days after we move out! So i don’t have to keep paying rent, we were very worried about that as we are breaking contract and it could have been very expensive if no one had wanted to take the place for a while.
