man the house we bought was p much a dump as well, which was basically the only reason we could afford it lol. we kind of sidled in just before the banks tightened up mortgage deposit requirements after the gfc and just before the government reduced the first home owners grant (which was our deposit because we didn’t have any savings ACTUALLY RAPTOR INFORMS ME WE HAD SOME SAVINGS BUT NOT THAT MUCH)

we did some cosmetic work to it back in 2009 (cleaned + painted everywhere, stripped the groce flooring and had the hardwood floors underneath polished) but the outside was a mess, the bathroom was a hole, the kitchen was falling to bits, there were (undamaged) asbestos walls in aforementioned kitchen, one of the house stumps was compromised, there was termite damage here and there, and basically knocking it down last year and putting up a factory built house that raptor designed herself(!) instead was a v good decision.

i am not moving from this spot until i die

or until raptor is rich enough to afford an acreage with one of those underground hobbit houses, whichever comes first ohohoh

omg what a pain in the ass and HOW STRESSFUL I’DA CRIED

the stress of that + trying to study fulltime + work fulltime did send me off the deep end after a couple of years of relative stabiliity, i am STILL BUTTMAD ABOUT IT AS WELL ACTUALLY MAYBE I WILL HUNT THE PREVIOUS OWNERS DOWN AND KICK THEM IN THE KNEECAPS

the fuck? they sure love to wait til the last minute don’t they? that shit don’t fly

ikr they didn’t just call us on the last day, they called at 3pm - and the bank shut at bloody 4pm because they were in a different time zone IT WAS VERY FRUSTRATING

ok this was like five years ago i need to get over it lol

oh my god just thinking about when we closed on our house makes me stressed

on the day everything was supposed to be finalized, at like, 3pm, i got a call from the solicitor saying everything was cancelled

he was supposed to be calling raptor but we’d picked up the wrong phones that morning by mistake so needless to say I had a gigantic freakout like the bb i am

apparently the deal could not go through because the property had been subdivided earlier and the street number had changed to 44 instead of 42 and the title documents no longer matched which quite frankly was not our fault it was the fault of the muppets we were buying from who should have had it sorted out earlier

and we had to wait another week for them to sort it and had to pay another $1800 for the fucking delay in closing >:[

the solicitor was a bit useless as well tbh

i don’t think i am going to get to plant anything this evening BUT everything that needed to be made before the 22nd is now made & on its way to the post office, and i also did a load of envelopes/care kits for the stuff that’s going out on the 22nd so like. i don’t have to do anything else. at all. ever.

except make myself a cup of tea because i’ve been fighting with sello tape all afternoon

i hate sello tape so much you probably wouldn’t believe it

once i get settled into my new house imma ask you and raptor for gardening tips

no 1 tip: look for v resilient plants so they are less likely to die if u find urself unable to tend to them all the time

that is my ultimate tip

i have heroically tidied up my eyebrows

i MIGHT have time to plant some stuff this afternoon

POSSIBLY i might try and clear some space in the living room for what will eventually be a ~sewing nook~ so i can pretend i’ve levelled up in the artistic stakes

but right now i have to cut some more A4 paper down to A5 size to print some invoices and addresses as for some reason every local stationary shop was right out of A5 paper yesterday, how inconsiderate
