Living up to our Name!

You read it here first (well, actually, I have no idea where else you would read it)

We are on the move ...again.  As perennial renters, unfortunately we are subjected to the whims of house owners who seem to decide that once this little threesome have lived in there house, it is looked after so bloody well that they decide to put it on the market and sell.

And no, I can't afford to buy any of them.

So, the merry go round that we call renting continues and we are in the process if culling and chucking and packing once again.

Although this time we don't seem to have as many tears about it. We have lived in our current abode for 12 months - which seems to be the length of stay we only ever seem to do!  But the move to this place was a bit of a trial as we made the move into 'town'.

As part of our Country Gypsy experience when we left the Big Smoke, we decided we really wanted to experience country living (well, most of it anyway), so most of the places we lived in had a bit of space around them and we were out of town. But the last move so us moving into a little cottage pretty much smack bang in the middle of town.

And only three doors down from the local hospital, which, with our current track record, can be quite handy but let's face it, those pesky ambulances are noisy with their blaring sirens!

Besides the fact that it is a little little cottage where the back yard is the size of a postage stamp - literally. This is great when we have to mow as it only takes us about 2 1/2 minutes to do it but we are all feeling a little 'enclosed'!!!

And poor old Horse Girl lost the bet and got the smallest room and when you are a teenage girl, you like to spend time in your room but if she sneezed she managed to bag her head on the door even though she was at the other end of the room.

So when that annual phone call from the real estate agent came, we managed to find a property which suited us in almost record time.

So, we are on the move. Soon, we will be on the very edge of town, in a house with plenty of room (in fact I think this house we are currently in could fit on our new lounge room), a spare room, a little Mum cave off the main bedroom (oh, so many options for this) and enough outside room to have an outdoor concert  and the Melbourne Cup on at the same time.

I'll post some pics when we are in!

Meanwhile, back to packing...hi ho, hi ho, it's off to packing I go......
