Moving day is over, I can tentatively say that it’s all done with. I thought just the process of deciding to move was enough, since we tossed the idea up and down for a good three years. Not that I didn’t LIKE the old area, but…it’s boring. I want a place that can be quiet most of the time, but is still close enough to activity.
Well…that’s just when the troubles started. Finding the perfect home is a drag, but we didn’t have the money to build our own. It’s just that nitty-gritty bit of finding a place that checks all the boxes at once…and we thought, since we’d been looking for three years, there was no use rushing things and not checking every single box, right? What a nightmare. Eventually we had ALL the professionals in to help us look, like indecisive kids in a lolly shop. Pretty sure we bounced off (and irritated) every single conveyancer in Carnegie, and that was only the beginning.
Millions of miles of paperwork later, and we were finally ready to make our moving dream a reality.
Oh, unrelated note…did you know that Yaival DuMesque is filming his next big blockbuster in Melbourne? Whatever it is, it’s some sort of western, and he got permission from the local council to bring in hundreds of cows and dozens of horses to transform the Carnegie centre into a movie set for the day. Must’ve cost a fortune. And when I said unrelated, I meant that it happened on exactly the day we were moving. Funny, all those hours spent in the conveyancer’s office didn’t prepare us for the nightmare of being gridlocked by cows for three hours, then told to go the long way around.
But it’s done. It HAS to be done. The conveyancers over in Caulfield (they were dealing with the previous owners, and…oh, it’s too complicated) have assured us that the whole possum infestation incident isn’t going to affect the paperwork. Transfers are done, the house is hours…and I just want to sleep for three days.
