I know that I am sick of packing and having my house look like a tornado has passed through it.
I know that I am sick of having a second lounge that is full of packed boxes and empty boxes with bubblewrap coming out of them.
I know I am sick of having packing tape lying on the diningroom table where I am doing the packing.
I know I am sick of having a back that aches.
I know that I can't wait to move on 14th March BUT I also know that we got a phone call at about 5.30pm yesterday asking us if we would extent settlement date by a week as the seller won't be able to finish everything that needs to be done by the 14th. Really ???? He has known he is selling his house since whenever he put it on the market. He has known he has a buyer for his house since we signed a contract on 23rd December. He has known we were going to be moving in on 14th March since we signed a contract on our house on 6th February. He has known since 24th January the issues that were picked up in the building inspection that needed to be rectified. Now, two weeks before we are due to move in he says he needs more time. And, in order for him to stay there another week, we have to move our furniture into storage, stay in a motel for a week and then move our furniture out of storage - sorry mate, I don't think so. We are still waiting to hear what it is that he hasn't done that he needs another week to finish, so I am figuring that it probably isn't that much and he is just looking for more time because it's easier to procrastinate over doing something than actually doing it.
I know that we have driven past the house on numerous occasions since we signed the contract looking to see whether he has made a start on what needs to be done outside and, up until earlier this week, no start had been made.
I know that I am happy that all the loan documents have been signed and are being processed by the bank.
I know that, while I said I was going to die in this house, that has changed and, given the size of the house and property we are moving to, I have to think that there will come a point in time when we will downsize to something smaller - I sure hope that will be our last move - I'm not cut out for all of this.
I know that Optus don't offer a service to our new address and I know that I have handed the whole telephone change-over to A to deal with - it's waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay beyond my capability !!
I know that I managed to get our electricity changed over.
I know that I am more than a little annoyed that we lose our 44c government subsidy on the electricity buy back - and, not only do we lose the 44c that we currently get, but when we move and it changes to 8c, we lose that from 1 July meaning that there really is very little financial incentive for anyone to install solar.
I know that I am a day late linking this in with Miss Cinders at The Miss Cinders but, better late than never !!
Have the best weekend !
Do you have any packing tips I could use ?
What do you know this week ?
