Adventures in Home Ownership

It’s fair to say buying a house is stressful and it’s one of the biggest decisions you will ever have to make in your life.  We all know this.  But, with all the stress, comes the pay-off.  You get to have your own place.  Everything in that place belongs to you (or, at least, the bank until you pay them back…sigh) and so each little thing because suddenly very important.  Hence me running around my new house on the weekend, being an idiot and pointing out all the bits and bobs that are now “mine”.

For instance….

…this tap is mine (oooh, shiny!)….

…this oven is mine (the previous owner left the tea towel behind…I am less excited about that…)……

…the outdoor area is mine (the plants were already mine – I just lugged them over to the new place on the weekend…still another boot load to go!)…

…I have a kitchen and it’s mine!  It’s a little bit seventies, but hey…so am I 🙂

…I have an enclosed outdoor area where I can entertain my hundreds of visitors!  Translation : I rarely have visitors, I will probably fill this with plants and possibly cats 🙂

…I have two toilets.  That’s pretty exciting, right? 🙂

I’m really trying to be positive about things.  The whole home-buying experience was very so stressful and frustrating and mental-breakdown-inducing that it has taken the shine off the house itself.  But, I am hoping, once all my stuff is in, it will feel like home and I will get used to the new surroundings and neighbourhood, and not miss my little unit in South Perth.  I will miss being near the water, but maybe I will find other aspects of the new suburb that I like just as much.  In all else fails, I can get in my car and drive.  And stop being such a bloody hermit!

Apologies again for not posting anything craft-related (or vaguely interesting) for a while.  I will be back on top of things soon I promise.

Hope you feel content and secure wherever you are right now. Thanks for stopping by 🙂

    1. Yes – I think both scenarios have their good and bad points. But it is time for me to be a grown-up and make a secure future for myself. Plus – no more rental inspections! Yay! 🙂 Thank you for reading.
