Well, it has finally happened. It took a while, and a lot to go and understand (on my half) but….
WE ARE (almost) HOMEOWNERS!!!!!
When I say almost, we have gone unconditional, but are still needing to sign off on a few more documents before mortgage payments start. It has certainly been a busy time, going from the big smoke – like Auckland, to a small town like Gisborne.
It has been very exciting, even having to wait for all our stuff to arrive was actually nice. No TV, no Internet (only relying on data on our phones) no landline or other ‘necessities’; such as a fridge, freezer or washer.
But now, we have all of those… well, not currently the washer – wasn’t doing its job, so is getting fixed (hopefully). Anyway, we have them all and are getting use to it all.
I even have a job interview tomorrow, which is going to be interesting. The first of many that I have applied for, or even just handed my CV into them. I will no doubt keep up-to-date on this regard.
I do wish I had gotten a response from something where I can get into writing for a newspaper, but nothing of the sort yet. Can only keep trying and hoping. I’m not even sure on what is going on with my marks for study at the moment. Fingers crossed, right.
It still doesn’t feel real. I don’t know why, but sitting here, in OUR lounge, it makes my heart do somersaults, and I could honestly cry. I’d be putting our photos up, but I’m wanting to work together with Reuban so as to get them all in the right places.
I may put photos up at a later date, to show the process of each room, but for now, I’ll sort photos out on the floor, keep the house tidy and keep sending my CV out into the world.
Until next time. Hopefully not such a big break in between again.
