Just a place for my old thoughts

Monday, 13 November 2006 10:11 am

I have been wondering if I should post this here or not for a week but thought I should, given that this site is more of a Diary than anything else I have kept before.

Mum and Dad have separated and are looking to sell the house. With Christmas so close I have real concerns about putting it on the market at this time of year. At least they have agreed to call it quits and split things equally. Last time this happened in my early 20's they called in the lawyers who were the only people that got any money out of the whole deal. (I don't like divorce laywers very much)

Anyway, it is making the idea of moving to Brisbane rather strange. But given that we have actually sold the house it certainly makes things rather strange.

Well, we have accepted the removalist's quote, opened an alternative bank account so we are one step closer to moving.

We have had Serena staying with us this week so the food has been flowing. We did get to Pearl for dinner on Friday which was really great. Having gone their before from Brendan & Freya's place I really had no idea where it was located. I know the address but couldn't pick the surroundings. After driving there on Friday night it all became clear. Why haven't I been there before, it is too easy.

The countdown has begun...4 working weeks left...whoa!

Rolling the dice

Well JT is away this weekend and Serena is in Melbourne so I am taking this to mean that I shouldn't try any harder to look at the house. I'll leave it to chance and if it is still there when we go up in a few weeks then it was meant to be.

Dad is painting a nice place in arana hills that he told us about but it is just a bit boring for what we are looking for. I really w
nt something amazing. Or at least at the moment I want to to believe that I can still afford amazing.

Anyone wanna look at a house for us?

Deb has found this place on the net and it looks really interesting. Problem is that we won't be in Brisbane for another three weeks so won't get a chance to look at it.

The photo's on the website look very nice and the floor plan, including outside deck, are very appealing.

So, does anyone wanna have a look at it on Saturday and let us know what they think? (Oh and take lots of photos.)
