Am off to buy a house!

  1. Am venturing down to New South Wales to buy a house in the country! Yay!! We have been thinking of buying another house up here but the rates we pay to the council have been extrodinary in the past couple of years and we can get a good deal down south. So I'm off to become a country EN with higher pays and less responsibility( tee hee, poor me!)
    Hubby already has a job to walk into and I'm going to have a scout around this week while we're house hunting. A few acres backing onto the river sounds like paradise to me at the moment. Solar powered with a BIG vegie garden, can't wait till the end of the year and we can move.
    Have a friend who needs our house up here as she is leaving her hubby so it will be in great hands. Can you tell I'm excited? Anyhow will be gone for about a week so don't do anything exciting wile I'm gone OK? Ahh what the hey, I miss all the good stuff anyway! LOL!! Have a great week and hope all you sickies are up and about again when I get back.

    Good for you, Aussie! Be sure to leave the windows open at night so we can hear the river and the crickets, okay? If you'll let me know when the garden comes in, I'll come down and help you put up the veggies! LOL!

    Uh, actually Renee, that's "New South Wales", as in, eastern seaboard state of Australia, not part of the UK. But that's ok, come down sometime for a visit, our weather is SO MUCH better than freezing old Britain. (In case you hadn't noticed, us Aussies still have a little bit of an inferiority complex about the fact that nobody in the rest of the world seems to know a damn thing about us!!!)

    Cool, aussienurse2! I'm really glad for you! I don't envy you the packing (UGH!!!), but am glad to hear you found a great place. Do you have enough room for a garden, at all? How are we going to visit if we don't have peas to shell and beans to snap, and things to can? LOL!
