Building a new nest
Much to my relief, I moved into my own place on the weekend.
I have been housesitting and staying with friends for the past two months but I’m ready to have my own room again (I am a decorating tragic!).
I can’t help but think this is a wonderful opportunity.
After losing most of my stuff in a fire, I have no legacy issues. I don’t have to make my old stuff fit my new life. I get to choose a quilt cover that is perfect for Summer 2013. I don’t have to find places to put old books, old shoes or old thoughts.
Everything is new.
I have moved in with flatmates for the first time in nearly 10 years, two of whom are mini-pinschers named Buzz and Bruno. I have my own little attic room, a second-hand bed and a clothes rack. That’s me now: basic.
This after being married and owning everything. Eeps.
To celebrate my new nest, the kind folk at Realestateview are giving you the chance to win a $50 Officeworks voucher simply by sharing your best moving tip in the comments section below (they also have a nifty quiz for potential buyers here but I am about 50 million years away from being able to afford anything so, you know, enjoy that).
