I own a house!
I actually own a house. For now at least. If I keep paying the mortgage then I own it for longer. That’s how this deal works.
I thought we lived in the city. We kind of do. Kind of. Just 40 odd kilometres out. Edge of…
Nice house. I found it on the internet. Nice website.
I visited the house once, bought it, went to the UK, came back and moved. That’s why I didn’t know it wasn’t in the city. I don’t care though. I like edging the city.
I’ve got a pool. I’ve got snakes too.
Ive got gardens and rooms and a hallway. 2 loos.
Ive got a new job too. Im an Assistant Principal in a school.
So my new life…
I’ve left behind a town where I had spent 6 years of my life. Some of it good. Some not so.
I left behind a fabulous veggie garden and a view to die for.
I left behind the ‘easy’ life for one a bit harder.
The best bits have come with me. The best bits are in my heart. The bad bits remain in the dust of the far north.
4 months down the track…a whole summer.
I still have a fly issue and Im yet to learn how to work swimming pools.
I do not have a spider problem but do have the above mentioned snake problem. I hope the repellers fix that.
I have peace, true friends and happiness in my soul.
God that’s corny.
In actual fact, I have a dishwasher that needs emptying, a washing machine that is beeping and a bed that needs changing. That’s why Im here typing! Work avoidance!
Since I arrived on the edge of the city I have had periodic bursts of energy. They have left!
I energetically did unpacking and built beds. I haven’t energetically put the packing boxes out for recycling.
Im NOT recycling anymore…
I had to get a new one.
$4600 new one. An energy efficient, government ruling one.
That is my recycling effort for the rest of my natural life.
I dont know what I will do with the boxes? Shed storage will do for now…and the next 20 years I suspect.
And that’s why the dishwasher is full of clean dishes, etc…I lost my burst.
That’s OK because that’s what you do with bursts. They are called bursts Ifor a reason. A lost burst is an acceptable thing.
I am however worried about the lack of bursting between Monday and Friday but I don’t have burst control so I simply accept it. Some things you don’t fight to understand.
Bursting at the weekend is what counts.
So as a general update, life is good. Very Good. Very happy. I need to do things like buy a mop but I don’t see that as value adding to my happiness so the mop can wait.
