On the Beach

Delia and Pat in Australia

We’re on the move – again

I’m sitting here in my red armchair (bought in the UK and always selected to move to the next place) looking up at a semi organised living/dining area in our new home. We have finally bought a house here in Perth. We are not actually in Perth but one of the inner-city suburbs and while there are mixed emotions, it is so nice to have a place that we can do what we want with.

Unfortunately, we did pay more than we wanted to pay, but it was the only way we were going to get close to what we wanted. We have had the place for a couple of weeks now and I will admit I painted the main bedroom before we moved in. Partly because I could and partly because I didn’t want a blue bedroom. It’s now a pale pink and Pat can’t see a difference so glad I didn’t go with his choice 😊.

Pat has spent the weekend constructing a shed, with the help of one of our friends. The instructions stated 2-3 hours, it basically took around 10! Partially as there were points of pulling the shed apart after they realised that something had been put together incorrectly. But we now have a workable shed in our carport. It’s not in the backyard as there just isn’t enough room in what is essentially a courtyard.

The plan is to be here for a minimum of 10 years, it may be the forever home. But let’s be honest this is me and it is unlikely. However, I do need some stability in my life so maybe this is it.

As a side note, the job that I was on secondment in, has been made permanent so I’ve officially moved to a different government department, which is great news as the job I now have is less stress and better pay.

Until next time.
