Some weeks ago I eluded to some happenings..
A little over a month ago we went to an auction bought a little house nearby the beach. We saw it for a total of 30 minutes, after only 1 pre-sale viewing, come auction day and some major heart palpitations we had ourselves a new home.
It's a small semi detached 1920's Art Deco on a long block, in a livable condition (meaning we don't have to update anything in a hurry, lucky for us slow pokes). There's a good size backyard, with room to extend. Archie will finally have some grass and possibly another fur friend. I can't wait to finally have somewhere sit outside, a little garden and attempt a vegie patch. Equally excited about new places to eat, deli's and grocers and a new neighborhood to discover.
We'll be moving out of our flat in a month. As much as we'll miss it, after 8 years we've out grown it and knew it was time to move on. Amid the chaos, 7 days after we get our keys, we'll fly out to LA, San Francisco and NYC on a whirlwind holiday.
We booked our flights pre-house auction when we convinced ourselves to give up on house hunting and just enjoy life as it was.. but then, I guess what's meant to be is meant to be. I occasionally freak out but know it will be an experience that we'll never forget. A final hoorah to live selfishly.. who knows it will likely be our last ever holiday :)
So folks, if there's any eateries, cute parks, museums, music gigs, bars or shopping secrets you'd like to share, please do!
