We ended last month sitting and pondering what we will do next
We knew we had to make desicions and our life was about to change. BUT we were totally unexpecting how quickly that change was going to happen.
I am still reeling from the monumentus events of the past 4 weeks.
We started the month rather casually looking around at what was available, and found this apartment building for over 55 year old’s. http://victoriatowerssouthport.com.au/. Then 2 days later an apartment on the 30th floor was available, the owners had managed to find a place they wanted to move into nearer to their family. Did we want to buy it?
We totally fell in love with it. With the facilities, gym, heated lap pool, library, bar-b-que area, fantastic view, Click on the link to have a look around. So we made an offer and put a contract on it.
Now we have to sell our beloved home and garden. A photographer came round to take photos for the advertising.
Look at that fantastic camera setup.
Then the “for sale” sign went up…
Then the advertising and photos went into 8 real estate internet sites. That is now the way houses are sold. Here you are ( click on this link) you can have a look through our house and garden. Would you buy it???
Within 3 days we had a couple come round for a look. I think they fell in love with it and they put an offer in. After negotiating they signed. …WOW…. The very best part, as far as we are concerned, is they are going to live here and renovate.
The day we put our house on the market the house behind us was demolished.
The noise went on for 5 days the house was gone. How sad. We had come to terms that could happen to our beautiful place, but really hoped it wouldn’t. So, my blogging buddies, we are happy and ready to move on to a totally different life style and new area to explore and friends to make.
We move on August 4. So now a major 4 weeks of packing 22 years of accumalated possessions/junk and going through our memories as we find long lost things hidden away.
Next month I will introduce you all to our new home.
But here is a last look at our garden this month.
I am so pleased I have all these months and years of “changing seasons” posts so I can take our garden with me and look back on it occasionally.
