We got a phone call from the real estate agent an hour ago. Our landlord, the one that we had a good relationship with a year ago, has decided that he wants to sell the house we live in. Not that he rang us up and told us so himself.
ARRRRRRRGGGGGHHHHH! (and that is not pirate speak!)
We don't have enough money to try to buy it, so it looks like we are going to be on the move. Also, is it worth buying even if we did have the money ($440K) - it is going to need the whole south wall replaced, window frames replaced, etc. Bottom bottom bottom and poo!
Nathan is talking moving in with his parents. Ack. It would be cheaper but like yeah, especially if his little brother is still at home playing very loud computer games at 2am. We'd have to put heap of stuff into storage - some of it could go full stop but other stuff is too good to turf.
Plus the car that we found a buyer for? The guy who owned the car won't give out his bank details cos he says that once people have your account details they can swipe money out of it, and like the buyer of the car is my SISTER and if I can't trust her then crikey, we are in strife. Um hello? Any ebayers out there who do the money transfer thing? How many times has someone stolen money out of your account? There are indemnity things in Australia anyway.
Sigh. Life is suddenly more grumpy. Ah well, all will be revealed in the fullness of time.
SnB tonight. Hooray! If I decide to go. I should cos it will stop me grumping. Nathan has people coming around so they will entertain him.
Here's a necklace that I put together for a friend. So simple. She bought most of the fixings, except the clasp and crimps. Each of the stones is about 4cm/1.5" long. Pretty, eh? So shiny I couldn't get a good shot of it. (OK I need a light tent but this was taken in the car on the way to giving it to her.) I really like the stone in the centre - looks like a landscape.
And now I am peeved cos I won't see the tibouchina in flower after we "liberated" it. It is only just coming back to life:
