So are you settled yet?
I'm getting this question a lot lately, understandably, because it has been just over a month since we moved in.
Yes, we are settled, I tell people, but I'll feel a lot more settled once the other house is sold.
On being settled...
I have a list of about 10 things for the handyman to do, and actually, it just occurred to me that I need to print one of my pages from the Amazing Life workbook because I made a list of 33 for the old house at the end of last year and knocked off 20 in 3 months. And then we bought this house :)
I know where everything is in this house now which is a big deal but all photos are not yet up because I need tons of hooks. Or lots of nails banged in my walls :o
Head settled is another matter altogether.
I chatted to the estate agent and we're going to reduce the price of our house so this thing can sell.
On the bright side, my savings account is looking slightly healthier every month as I add to my savings, and we get bonuses end Sept.
Big talk around work about how the pool is half of what it was last year, blah blah blah, I don't care I just want some money!
I think it's the first year ever I actually can't wait for that money :) Normally I pretend to not have it so it can stay in my account as long as possible without "plans" (after the tithe, of course).
Anyway, enough chit-chat. I have a list to get to - I want to review my year of 41, start thinking about some goals for 42, and other such exciting (to me) things.
Over to you.
How settled are you? Do you plan to move anytime soon? Do you plan to stay forever? Move to another country (the current trend)?
PS I was chatting to a work colleague who has THREE sets of friends moving back to South Africa from Australia. Life was much better in South Africa. It's true - we do have a great quality of life here.
