The paperwork is all signed. Today the contract on our place goes unconditional. And, three weeks on Friday we move - eeeeeeeek - that is just around the corner. Having said that I am quite glad we have a reasonably quick settlement as it means we can get on with the adventure in our new home and all that building entails !!
If only I didn't have so many things on at the moment I could get heaps more packing done. Monday night we went to the Suns v Essendon NAB challenge game. While we were very scrappy in the first two quarters, they seemed to pull their fingers out in the second half and, in the dying seconds of the game kicked a behind to win by 1 point. A real nail biter for the first game of the year but I think it would have done their confidence the world of good - being able to come back like that after the start that they had, shows their commitment to winning. In some ways I feel a bit like that - we seem to have struggled for a while with the whole house thing and now we are so close to the end and being able to pull it all off - we just need to get through the next couple of weeks before things can settle down again.
I am trying to get around to read blogs but haven't been as successful as I would have liked. Please don't think I have forgotten about you, I haven't, I'm just running short on time. I am trying to get ahead of my work so that the time I take off when we move, isn't made more stressful by knowing that I left work undone in the office. We had already planned on going away in April and we have canned that trip - it was just getting too hard trying to tie it in with the move and finances. We are hoping to get down to Melbourne for a weekend while we are off in April but will wait and see if that happens or not.
Have the best day that you can !
Do you have any tips to share about moving ?
