Well - long time, no post!! I'm a huge ball of stress here at the moment, luckily the buying of the new house all went through without a hitch, so we are now the proud owners of two houses ( = two mortgages) until our current house is sold.
I'm stressed because we actually have a contract of sale on our house, and the finance/unconditional date for the guy was yesterday, and we dont really know whats going on, this guy is waiting to hear what is happening with the buyer of HIS house! Anyway, so we were planning on starting to move house over the next two weeks, but now I dont know what we're doing, because we dont want to move the furniture out of our current house until its sold (a house with no furniture is quite difficult to sell!).
So I'm trying not to worry about it too much, but I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed at the moment! There are also a million other things running through my mind at the moment, all those fabulous things you have to remember to do when you move house... so I'm writing a list. Get the phone connected, put the electricity in our names, change home insurance, change car insurance, get the mail redirected, get broadband set up on the phone line, fix the fence before the dogs move in etc etc... I have been lying awake at night with all these thoughts just churning through my mind... grrrr sometimes I just can switch my brain off!!~!!
We went to the new house on the weekend (its only the next suburb over) and I got to explore the vege garden - its HUGE! I will have to post a pic (before it gets demolished to accommodate a new shed). This vege garden is quite run down, but even so, there are huge cauliflowers, broccoli, carrott, tomato, capsicum, about 3 HUGE chilli trees, passionfruit, pineapple, mulberries, lemons, pawpaw, beans, spinnach, lettuce and cabbage, onion and shallots! Because its been uncared for, a lot it has 'gone to seed' - but a lot of it is quite edible, and I'm so excited!! BF has marked off an area where we will transplant some of the vege garden into (so that he can build his shed) - but I'm a bit concerned about moving it, because I reckon it will all die if we move it. Also, I'm no gardener, and I have no idea how to keep vegetables alive. It makes it even harder now that we cant use a hose to water (drought) - so I carried many bucket-loads of water to it on the weekend! Oh well its all good exercise!
Last night the Real Estate shouted us to Gold Class movies, so we got to see Miami Vice, and were wined and dined - it was lovely! I wouldn't really recommend the movie though - it was 2 hours long and I have to say it was pretty boring! Even BF yawned all the way through!
