A new home for holtieshouse.



Seems like ages since I have written anything on F/B (or the blog) and it certainly isn’t because nothing has been happening in my world… the very opposite in fact I have been on a whirlwind ride which was going much to fast for me to jump off.
In something like chronological order, since Christmas 2012 which I spent in Victoria with most of my family, the decision to move back to Victoria became a reality so some lifestyle investigations began, after much to-ing and fro-ing I decided to buy another house and live independently while I was still able to.
There was a pretty good range of homes available in my price range so I made an offer on one of them then headed for home to sell my Queensland house, Vicki rang me a couple of days later to tell me that the offer had been accepted so the game was on in earnest, I listed my house with a local agent and we agreed on a selling price, after one open house which was very well attended the agent rang me to say the house was sold… so in a two week period I bought and sold houses in two different states.
My dear sister passed away at the same time I was booked into hospital to have the reversal of my colonoscopy done, the surgery all went well and I have since received a clean bill of health report. 
Marcus and Alan came up for a week to organize a garage sale and pack up my stuff, as an added bonus the people who bought my house bought my furniture too so the move became much easier. Thanks to the boys efforts the garage sale was a success, we gave the surplus to charity and I set sail for my new home and life.
I am at this moment, 1.00pm Wed March 19th, sitting on my new front porch typing this post while I wait for my mew Refrigerator, Washing Machine, Bedroom Suite and Lounge Suite to be delivered, The carpets were all cleaned yesterday and my stuff from Gympie arrives tomorrow so I’ll probably move into my new home on the week end…. WooHoo.
Its now 10 pm and all the expected things have happened, so I’m off to bed… a big day unpacking tomorrow!!!!

I hope that all your stuff arrived as promised. Having moved last July, and getting rid of the detritus of 31 years in one house, I know how daunting - and satisfying it can be. But I only moved 7 miles away, not the huge leap you made. I wish you well, Peter!!

How wonderful for you, Peter that the sale and purchase occurred so effortlessly. That certainly must have been a giant load off for you.

I'm so pleased all is well with you again, health-wise. It sounds like 2014 is going to be a great year for you. Enjoy your new home; surrounds and good health to your utmost.

Best wishes for this new chapter in your life. :)

It was meant to be...that's why it all went so smoothly. The Universe was on your side, Peter. Queensland does seem empty without you though!
