I'm back... again

I don't have an internet connection at home and the time at work that I would normally spend blogging has been spent house-hunting instead.

I left my last post on a rather sad note but I had good news which I didn't get around to.

I had initially intended on spending 6 motnhs at my parents place to save up enough $$$ to move into a place by myself. Then I set myself a goal of 3 months. After 2 nights at my parents house I spoke to Mitchum and asked him if he wanted a flatmate. He did. YAY! He had just been served an eviction notice and had 60 days to relocate.

After checking out 4 places over the last week we found our "dream home" and handed an application in on Tuesday. We got the good news on Tuesday afternoon. We sign the lease next wednesday. YAY!

I'm so excited. Money is going to be really tight for a while but thats OK with me.

In other news:

I helped Chris move the last of our stuff out of the old place on the weekend and after shedding lots of tears and laughing lots it was a real relief to be finally rid of that place.

Chris had an unregistered car in the carpark that hadn't been started for over a year which we needed to have removed. The guy (eventually) started the car but it didn't seem very responsive to the number of revs the guy was giving it. He thought if he had a run-up he might make it up the ramp.

That is what a gearbox sounds like when it explodes.
