I'm still buzzing with happiness!
Today I am going out to buy some really lovely wine to have tonight.
Jacqui from Tauranga is staying the night tonight, and Steve and Bex are coming over too. We can have a really good chin wag, and sip (NAH Skull)... some wine. *smiles*
I've got a few more photos of the house, but they are 'screen grabs' from the website, so not that good.
ABOVE: This is the front of the house, not exactly pretty... but I will make it look better with pots and plants eventually.
Stew wants to put a carport to the right for his car, as my car and the gym equipment will be in the garage.
I bet I can make a carport look pretty! *smiles*
ABOVE: this is the 'back' of the house, where it's all happening! There is a lovely BIG back yard. Heaps of room. We will probably put in more fruit trees and a grape vine or two.
There is so much we can do to this place to make it ours.
ABOVE: the floor plan. The bedroom up by the front entrance is going to be my sewing room. The bedroom next to the family bathroom will be the 'spare' bedroom for guests.
ABOVE: this is the big kitchen/dining/family room. We will make this our 'lounge'.
I'm already placing furniture in my head!
Did I mention we get to keep the big Fridge/Freezer too? How cool is that. It's plumbed in, so comes as a bonus. I think it produces ice or chilled water, not sure yet.
ABOVE: this is the smaller, separate lounge, which will be for the kids.
I hope you have enjoyed this sneak peek of our new home.
ABOVE: Really, really nice wine! It's the same as the wine the estate agent who sold our house gave us... I'd never had it before... probably because it is freakin' expensive!
But I felt the occasion warranted it. I've also got two other bottles of wine... but less expensive ones.
I looked at beds today, we need one for the spare bedroom. Every time someone leaves home we let them take their bed, so we are a bit short on beds. lol
I'm going to be having so much fun soon, getting our new home just how I like it. *smiles*
We still don't have a moving date, that will depend on when the owners of our new house can find a rental to move into. Hopefully it won't take long.
I popped in and visited Bex and the boys too this morning. Dante is like Stew, coughing and feeling ikkk.
Hopefully they both improve soon.
MORE GOOD NEWS: Our purchase has gone UNCONDITIONAL. Which means the house really is ours... 100%.
I can now breathe ... and move on with packing up our house, organising the move, the kid's schooling, dogs, insurance, bla bla bla. *huge smiles*
Well a lovely evening, had a wine, lots of yakking... spoke to 'the boyfriend'... and then said nite nite to his wife! She's sleeping in Brylee's room tonight.
Bry is on a mattress on the floor in the family room. *smiles*
