The Great Australian Dream

Not much to say this week… just a picture…

Our house

And maybe a few words – it’s almost finished, we get the keys on Friday!
It’s been a long time coming, and even though we have owned brand new before (we purchased our apartment in Sydney new), this one is built with our decisions. Our agonising over the brick and roof and paint colours. Our changes to the plans to suit our wishes and dreams, our compromises…

Carpet gets laid next Monday and we move next weekend (the week before Christmas – time flies!)

We have moved house 12 times in the past 14 years. We plan to be living here until the kids leave home. I do not want to look at a packing box for a very, very long time after this. I can’t wait to get in!!!



  1. So happy for you guys, and glad you’ll be in before Chrissy!!

    Even though we move all the time, at least other people organise everything for us. We’ll be out of here in… 14 days and hopefully able to start building our new place during our next posting.

  2. How exciting! Best wishes to you in your move!

  3. So exciting!! I can’t wait to see it all done and with you guys in there. Very very cool.
