Moving in....

Yesterday afternoon we picked up the keys to the new place. Now it's starting to feel real!! In between carting in loads of boxes and bags I've had a quick squiz at the place in an effort to answer some of those lingering questions about the place that I couldn't remember from our quick 2 minute inspection where we both spent more time trying to impress the agent (and it worked!!). Turns out renting really is a game - didn't matter about our references, what mattered is what the agent thought and we made sure she thought we were good and keen!!!!

Back to those answers...
  • the carpets are blue/green and only in the bedrooms (as I thought)
  • the other areas have timber (or timber laminate?) floors - again as I remembered;
  • There's climate contol ducted heating/cooling - thank goodness - I hadn't even thought of that!;
  • there is a clothes line - a hills hoist no less (well when I rented in Melbourne many places didn't!!)
  • and yes the garage door has a remote - whew!

A few other things that I discovered -

  • A garden shed!
  • whilst there is no garden, there's garden beds filled with gravel which will suit perfectly for all my pots (have garden will travel!) - the garden beds are gravel filled because of our severe lack of water I suppose! and probably because the house has been rented most of its life and just never been planted.
  • there's his and her sinks in the ensuite (which is HUGE!) - and no I didn't see them because I didn't look past the SPA!!!!!!

Best get moving and put the next load in the car. B is working this weekend so the heavy stuff will be done later in the week. At the moment the focus is to get everything else out.

I don't have any pics yet, but should get some by the end of the day.

A garden shed and beds with gravel are great, potted gardens are easy to care for. Love your blog. Congrats on the new place.
