So after the parking drama’s and all in this house, we found another house, signed a twelve month lease and gave notice here, all about seven weeks ago…. That’s right, read the previous post, and we’re going back to Canberra in january, six months away!!!!! Thankfully we have a Defence Clause in the lease, which basically says if we get posted we can break the lease without penalty.
This week we’re moving into the new house. Love it. Big, spacey, room for my sewing, Eddie’s computer, big garage, heaps of parking, secure backyard, very nice. And we’re only going to be here for six months. Sigh…. then we get to move everything again….
We’re so over moving…. I just want to settle down permanently in our own house and know that we won’t have to move at someone else’s whim. I want to be able to decorate the house and not have to ask permission every time I want to hang a picture. I want to be able to plant a garden and know that I’ll be around to see it grow, and that the time and effort I put into improving the soil will be useful to me! It’s just a dream, it’s not going to happen for several years. I knew that when I married an army guy, but it’s just really irking me at the moment. I’ll get over it…..
