Phew, where has the time gone since blogging on here. Well, we have been busy re packing!!!!!!! yet again, some of the boxes are still packed from the UK, so christmas will be here very soon.
The house finance has gone through without a hitch, should I say that, ahhhhhh. We are completing on the 6th august. ahhhhhhhhhh. fingers crossed.

Well what an amazing finanical broker we have found, here in Mandurah, she has helped us, both for the purchase, loan etc, but also personally, a huge thank you. She advertises in the australia/ new zealand mag, found in the uk, we all had it while waiting to come here. Anyone wanting her details email me, and will let you have them.

The process here, is so easy, and stress free, looking back on my old blog entries, what a nightmare selling in the UK, thank good ness no more of that rubbish.

21 days after the homeloan is granted that is completion day! job done. Great.
Hence up at oh 3am, again, planning, writing lists of things to do etc etc, oh and having to work at the same time too. Still will be glad to get out of this rental, has been ok, made it home, but looking forward of becoming bunnings bestest friend. Oh and not forgeting Ikea!! yippeessss.
Anyway best go, another day of packing ahead, a few hours anyway, before heading out for a family day in the sun, not bad being the middle of winter..... 22 today.... whopp whoop

Latest update,
We are in the process of buying a house, its and established house, in the same area as we are renting. Got it for a good price, needs TLC, ex rental for a few years, with a bit of love, and care it will be really homely. We are all looking forward on getting into it, and out of here. Looking forward on getting rid of the extra boxes, from the move over. Not enough storage space at the moment to get all goodies out. So we will be having Christmas in July!!!!.

Used a great mortgage advisor, if anyone wants the detail email and I will let you have the contacts...

yipee, counting the days

well, what do we do, build or buy............ nightmare, can't any worse than selling and coming from the UK. Have seen a mortgage advisor here in Mandurah, great lady, waiting to hear whether we can start the process off. Re Richard only working for 3 months they are tighting up, so will keep u posted.
