Young...Here we Come!

I's been a while - sorry.

They say buying a house is one of the most stressful things you can do.  I think in our case it has been the most stressful thing we have EVER done.  I should add here that we have bought and sold houses before so we knew what we were in for, but this particular house takes the proverbial cake!

Like I said in my last post the vendors of the house we were buying needed to sort out some things and we were stuck in the middle.  My dream house is now just that - a dream.

Our decision was made to move anyway - especially as I have already enrolled the children into their new schools, so the next hurdle was to find a place to rent until we can sort out what to do:
a) wait for the dream house to come back on the market
b) find another suitable house
c) build

Today I was told that we have been approved to rent a 4 bedroom place - with a pool and spa! on 10 acres just 5 minutes out of town.  I am feeling the tension being released from my shoulders already!

So in less than an hour I have booked the removalist, given notice to the current estate agent here, organised garden clean up, booked in carpet cleaners and end of lease cleaners. 

Now all I need to do is get through the next 4 weeks!
