It was my first day back at work yesterday and a few things had changed, we have new carpet, a new paint job, and I have a new chair. Just one more thing, tomorrow I get a new computer, feeling very special. 🙂
Two days of 40 degrees plus and I am over it, bring on winter. I have to admit the house is quite cool and so is the office, but the air conditioning in my car must need a re-gas. I am so soft it is pathetic.
Today is the 8th wedding anniversary of my eldest son Kane and his wife Kristin, they have spent the day on their first overseas flight, Phuket via Kuala Lumpur. This is their first holiday anywhere and they have worked very hard for it, I really hope they have a wonderful time.
Brian and I finally have the news we have been waiting for, our home loan has been approved and settlement is 24th January, we are over the moon. We have been very fortunate to have a good landlord but we are over lining someone elses pocket, it is a great feeling to be able to purchase our own home again after all we have been through.
I am really looking forward to redecorating this house, putting our touch on it, buying what we want, putting pictures up wherever we like. Brian will be able to have his dog or cat, or both, whatever he likes, and I can have my racing pigeons. We are much closer to my sons and their families, and it is only a quick drive to most of our closest friends. Win, win! We are both very happy, 2014 will be a very good year.
