This Indecision's Bugging Me.....

well, to be honest, it's not really anymore but thought that would be a great heading.

We are moving - again.

We have had an offer we just couldn't turn down. Mum and Dad have a beautiful brand new four bedroom home on a bare 10 acre block on the same road as them. It has been on the market for nearly a year now and isn't budging. They have been advised to drop $150K to sell it. Dad refuses to lose that much money but now the Insurance company won't insure it anymore as it has sat vacant for nearly a year. Enter us.

We move into this in four or five weeks:

It was a hard decision though, bus isn't as close, much more exposed than this place but:

spa bath in ensuite, double glazing, warm, 3 car garage, 3 bay shed, underfloor heating, paddocks, can have our OWN, chickens, pig, cow, cple sheep, HORSES!!!!! Rent the same. Won't go up while we live there for next couple of years, Mum and Dad at end of 500m driveway, across the road (great for kids before and after school when i start my equine course). Just too many pluses. Although Blair is a bit worried about the parental control issue and I am a wee bit too but we've lived in one of their rentals before and it was fine. So here's to another new step.

I'm decluttering as we speak, nothing like a new home to make you want to get rid of shite.

I have started horse riding lessons again.

Nowhere as easy as I remember it being!!

And for fuck's sake, could barely walk the first week after the first lesson. Third lesson tomorrow.

I am rocking this show.

Bloody hell, you lucky duck!

That place looks awesome mate. Wish I had your parents! =D

The pros outweigh the cons by the sound of it... fantastic. Great stuff for you. =)

Don't worry, the jelly legs from riding will get easier... again, the pros outweigh the cons in that one. ;)

Congrats to you, Blair and the kids! I'm sure you'll give it just just the right amount of style and personality that lets all feel welcome. The pics say it's a keeper.

All the best,

Place looks bloody awesome mate! Am sure you & Blair will sort the parental thing - just set your boundaries at the beginning if you can :0)

Am feeling your sitting bones & Legs!

Lynda said...

Um... er.... Mansion springs to mind looking at that! Wow, how amazing for you and don't look on it in the negative having your parents close by, I'm sure it will be wonderful.

Steph said...

moving is high on the stress list Jules.. ask any shrink! (no quirky comments please!)
on the other hand being busy is also good for the mind.
I trust you enjoy staying there and that its a blessing for you..

Win win all round!
It is a gorgeous home, and the land is awesome!
Chickens... yeah!
All the rest of it too is just neat.
I liked your other 'new' place too though... it had character.

You have made the right decision...

Bloody awesome Jules! You lucky bugger! Apart from the house looking spectacular, it's wonderful to have so much space around you & the added bonus of grandparents for the kids, literally just up the track :-)

You're gonna love it sweetie.

The house looks fantastic & I am sure you will all be happy there. Both you & Blair have a concern about our parents being so close by and being the landlords. I think you need to make sure you all keep the lines of communication open and nip any problems in the bud as soon as they arise.

You need to make sure your parents understand that you need to have your independence & privacy (don't forget that you are doing them a favour by moving in as well), Blair needs to keep his cool when they do something to piss him off and unfortunately, because they are your parents - you are the one stuck in the middle & have to be the peacekeeper.

I am sure you can make this work, it is a beautiful house and a great place for you & Blair & the kids to realise our dream life - it will be great!!

It's gorgeous!

There is nothing like clean, fresh, bright space to make you feel good about you.

I love it.

What a beautiful home, Jules. I'd be creaming my jeans if I had a chance to live somewhere like that. My hubby'd hate it though, too quiet for him.
