Today we are off to visit the owners of our new home in Cambridge.
It's our 'final' inspection, and a chance to ask them questions about the house... alarm, heating and so on.
I want to find out what sort of fruit trees are on the property too. There's quite a few. 3 are figs... 2 of which might be getting the chop!
Last night my head felt a bit sore... so I ran my fingers over my scalp. DANG!!!!! I've been burnt by the hair bleach! Luckily it's 'just' over about 1|4 of my head. On the side they started on, so the area that had the bleach on the longest.
CLEARLY I will never be doing that again!
*sigh* this means I will have to wait a while till I can get something done to tone down the barbie blonde. Bugger.
5.18 pm: And we've had an awesome, productive day.
It was lovely to meet the owners of our new home... and their 3 cute little kids.
We got all our questions answered and so on. We have 3 plum trees, 3 fig trees, a lemon tree, a lime tree, 2 olive trees, a feijoa tree and a rhubarb patch.
We mentioned how we probably wouldn't be keeping two of the fig trees, so they asked if they could get them professionally removed and replanted on their new property? We said 'HELL YES'... so they will be going with them. Yaaaa, we don't have to get them removed.
I couldn't possibly take any photos today as the house was in total chaos, with them packing to move on Tuesday. Only everything she packed up in a box, one of the kids came along and unpacked it for her! It was a case of "Where's the floor?" in every room!
Poor guys, I know how hard it is to move and juggle little kids.
At least for us, this time, our household only consists of two teenagers, who can help.
While in Hamilton, we bought the mattress for the new bed (half price), an electric blanket for it (it's bloody cold in the Waikato!), and we also got this:
ABOVE: we wanted a sofa bed for the lounge, and ended up getting this suite. It will fit in the new lounge nicely. We didn't get the Ottoman, as we have a lovely coffee table to use in the lounge.
It's been in storage for almost 8 years! I can't wait to use it again.
So, a very good day. We are getting the new bed and lounge suite delivered to our new house after we move in.
It's all coming together so well.
Having dinner shortly, then settling down to relax for the evening.
