WE SOLD!!!!!!!




For Sale...not any more!!!! Sorry Mr. Kooky, we're moving!!!!

YAY!!! We have a contract on our house!!!!!!! I think Mark and I jumped up and down for about half an hour when we found out on Saturday...and I was dancing around with Lili in my arms and she kept saying "More Mummy..." so I danced around a bit more LOL :D!!! So, no doubt my whinges are forgotten with that one word from the real estate agent on Saturday arvo..."CONGRATULATIONS!!!!"

A few details...it's a cash sale so the contract will become unconditional after the building and pest inspections which will hopefully be done early this week. Then we can move!!!! YIPPEEEEEEEE!!!! Ok settle Karen ROFL :D :D :D Anyway, we're off to look at 3 houses in Hervey Bay tomorrow...nice area, brand new, 4brms, db garage, high fence, totally gorgeous!!! We are going to rent for a few years now. Had enough of owning a house for a while!

So...hopefully we will be moving next weekend. And I am looking forward to having a big spending spree and buying a new bed for us, new linen, and some decorator stuff for the house. And painting some canvasses, and doing some framed layouts, etc. to display in the house. And spoiling the kids and family for Christmas! And hopefully I will get a nice pressie now for my 30th birthday (hint hint Sweetie xoxo ;P). But we will invest a little chunk too after we pay off that horrible mortgage...be nice to have a little nest egg behind us for the first time in our lives.

Well, that's it for now...big storm coming so I'll go now. Hopefully it won't be a bad one like the other ones that've been around up here in QLD today! Catchya all later...I'm off to watch the light show outside :D

Oh Karen CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!

That is WONDERFUL!!!!!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL!!

Great pic btw of the kookaburra on the sold sign. It's kind of symbolic. Kookaburras are such happy creatures (well seem that way to me anyway!! ;))

Have fun shopping and moving.

I rent too and although some say it's dead money which I guess it is, it's far less hassle than owning. You can get on with living your life without having to worry about your house. :D
