Life goes on
I am in the process of tidying up the house in order to put it on the market and close a chapter of my life.
Of course, Geoff has been gone more than 7 years now (17/2/2006), so it is time to move on, but what with the offspring still residing in the home we all shared, it seemed too soon yet to finish. Geffo moved into his mums when he moved out, (not for long he said and she said), "I'll get my own place, and build a new life", which have proved to be famous last words. He is still at his mums, having some sort of "relationship" with a lady, (after his overseas flings), and no closer to renting his own place. He constantly whinges about having to contribute to a house he does not live in, although he only just covers half the mortgage payment and some of the health cover for himself. There is no longer any contribution to the rates, insurance or maintenance costs. He just loves to have a whinge. There are still three of his children living at home, so I can't see what the problem is, but anyway he's had enough of it. So we are all moving out.
I have been looking at housing in the blue mountains, since it's one of those places I have always wanted to live. Unfortunately I am not quite in a position to put down a deposit, and this has seen me miss three very nice places so far (one of which went $25K under the asking price). To cap it all off one of the Sydney Sunday papers ran an ed. that the Blue Mountains were the way to go for cheap housing, thanks for that stupid paper. Now I will have to fight off the gen Y's when they all run to the mountains and drive up the prices. Kandos is looking better and better, all I really need is a job (like so many kids/adults in the country), what do you think my chances are?
