Quick (but HUGE) Update

I haven't updated for a while because I've been a bit busy lately, and not entirely because of GTA IV :)

Em and I have bought our own place! :D

It's a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom apartment at Kangaroo Point with a great city view. It was one of the first places we looked at over a month ago, when we weren't yet serious about buying a place - I still have a few months left on my lease, and Em had all her money in a term deposit. All the places we looked over the following weeks didn't quite compare back to this place for one reason or another. So we were rather surprised to find out after 5 weeks on the market, not only was it still for sale, but the owner had dropped the price!

Even though we were still not serious about buying, we both felt that perhaps this was a sign we should get serious. So we did :)

After 3 or 4 days of negotiating, we managed to get the owner down to a price we were happy with. It's now been about 10 days, and after the building inspection came back all good last week, I got the call late yesterday afternoon to say our finance was all good too. So it's now official!

It doesn't settle until July 3rd, so it's not quite ours yet, but it's all but there now.

This is one of the few times in my life I'm actually looking forward to moving! :D
