House is going on the market

After a bit of thought on the situation, my wife and I finally decided that we would put our house on the market.

We have thought about it for a while, and when we went overseas the plan was to come home and then put it on the market before Xmas.

As of the weekend, we signed with the agent of choice. By tomorrow the paperwork for the contract should be complete. At which time we should arrive home to find a For Sale sign posted on the lawn.

Our house has served us well, but we seriously need to consider future things. Namely plan for children, so with that in mind we hope to build a place in one of the nearby suburbs. We had found a house plan we like, however it appears the blocks of land available are not as we liked. So we might even buy some land just up the road from where we live now, and build with a different builder. As it will be a bit cheaper then we had planned elsewhere. Probably about 20,000 cheaper.

Of course if and when the house sells, it means we will have to go rent for a bit. So I will probably loose broadband. Oh no..

Our 3rd year Wedding Anniversary

Tonight is our 3rd year Wedding Anniversary and my wife and I decided that we would eat out for the event.

We decided we would goto a local restaurant which we haven’t been to for atleast 3 or more years since it first opened. The first time we went the food was amazing and the restaurant was amazing too. The interior is very nice with all the sandstone walls.

We arrived at The Hermitage Restaurant and were seated fairly quickly, pays to book ahead just incase. I ordered a Snapper Fillet and I must say it was totally awesome. It came with Battered Fries and they too were excellent. My wife ordered Steak and it too looked very nice.

On the whole, an excellent evening and a wonderfull meal.

Happy to recommend this place, so if your in the area and want to eat somewhere that is nice. Go for it.

And so concludes our Alaska/Canada holiday.

Arrived back in Sydney on Sunday morning. We planned on catching a train home and then getting picked up.

Unfortunately for us cityrail were doing some major track work and had buses running, as you can imagine it was a nightmare. It took sometime to get home. Further more we could only get as far as Liverpool. At which point we got off and decided to get picked up from here. As it wasn’t worth getting on another bus service to go a few stops.

We were tired and just not in the mood.
