The other day I got a wonderful surprise call from my mother with unexpected news. Because the value of our unit is right up at the moment she has decided it is a good time to sell and so as that we are not homeless she is lending us enough money to cover costs for the move to Cooma. WoooOOOoooOOOOooo hooooo!
I am so excited that the move is finally happening, but a little nervous and anxious as well about all there will be to do. We have to do some painting and general cleaning and maintenance to the unit as well as all the usual packing stuff, organising removalists etc... and finding a place to live. Once we have the timeline a bit better sorted I will contact a couple of the real estate agents and tell them what we are after and get them to send us pics of anything appropriate. We probably wont bother driving down to inspect anything because it is a bit of a drive and being a rental it doesn't matter THAT much. As long as we can have the cats there and the roof doesn't fall in on top of us...We also have to find work which is the harder part but I think that will have to wait until after the move, or we at least have a set date. People don't seem keen to hire someone with a start date of 'oh, you know, sometime in the next month or two...'
I now have a to do list as long as my arm but am getting through it bit by bit. Today was a break day though - we went up to my MIL to be's 10 acre block in Kurrajong and had a lovely time. The views to the west are amazing as they are right on top of the ridge. It was also very nice and warm, a pleasant change from the cool air down here in the Sydney Basin! We didn't JUST relax though, we also had some fun playing with the chainsaw hehe. I haven't used one since I did my training 6 years ago but it all came back pretty quickly. It was wonderful being up there in the quiet and fresh air doing a bit of real work. I am so much more 'me' in that environment. I am really looking forward to being me constantly once we are out of this crowded noisy city!!!
