The little things that make me twinkle

Where does the time go? Buyin a house and heading back to work!

Wow! The last few weeks have been hectic trying to buy a house. Getting finance, organising inspections, arranging an exchange of contract and going back to work.

Today was my first day back on the job. I wont reveal what I actually do as my job expects its employees to refrain from publicly admitting they work there. LOL . In the cyber world any way. (Something negative you say about your day may adversely affect the image of the organisation. ) Anyway after nearly 10months on maternity leave I am back working. Gotta make those mortgage payments.

When I bought the first house It was brand new, not yet out of Land Titles and we moved in under contract before the property actually had a title to exchange. There was no cooling off etc to worry about because we werent in any rush due to the bureaucratic processes being so slow.

This time it seems like we are on a time constraint. The contracts have taken forever to be exchanged, the Bank valuer hasnt filed his report straight away and everything seems to be taking forever. Maybe its because Im so keen to move in that it seems like its taking forever. Hopefully the next few weeks will go by quickly and I will be into my new home.


In the meantime Im sorting through 5yrs of accumulated junk. Anyone want to do it for me?

Moving house! Hopefully soon…

My husband and I are in the process of buying a house. We decided that as my mum was moving in with us the current house wasnt gonna be big enough and we had to find somewhere larger. We hadnt been looking for long when we found something that ticked the boxes. Plenty of rooms for everyone, space for our two boxers and a granny flat for my mum.

Hopefully we will be moving in 6 weeks. In the meantime I will be looking for great ways to decorate on the cheap, furnish the kids bedroom and make the new place our home as well as great ways for organising the packing process.

Wish me luck I think it will be a hectic few weeks coming up.
