To further complicate things slightly, my (smart) phone has died (i.e. it was often my camera and browser). It was on its last legs for a while and a repair under warranty kept it going for a bit longer, but it has now completely gone (RIP Nexus One). I did toy with the idea of getting another, I think Matt was drooling at the thought of having a Nexus Prime in the house, but I have decided (with permission from work) to consolidate my work and personal mobiles. For the past 2.5 years I have been juggling with two mobiles... keeping both of them charged and available when needed. The downside is a change of personal mobile number. I will do a mass email and continue to forward my old phone to my new one for a couple more weeks.
On to the fun stuff... our new home. It's great! Exactly what we had been looking for. Has made waiting for the right thing to come by worth it. It is still in the Inner West (next suburb over but not quite as close to my work as we were hoping), terrace/duplex, single story, we think federation (not too hard to work out which part of the house is original and which came later), two bedrooms, small but adequate bathroom, massive retro-awesome kitchen, concrete back yard and separate garage. Let's have a walk-thru:
|Our room, again, huge! (please excuse the mess)|
We have furniture from 1.5 rooms of our old place and it still feels nice and spacious.
Yes, that is an air-con on the wall too :)
Liam's room is roughly the same size, just no built-ins or air con.
|Living space number one, our lounge room. |
To the left (out of shot) is a non-functional fireplace.
We have our TV etc there.
|So much bench space. This is about 2/5ths - the rest is to the left, you can see some in the last picture.|
Also, beautiful big windows and cooking with gas!
|The necessities: toilet - left, bathroom - middle, laundry - right (you can just see it in the previous shot).|
Not as nice as the rest of the place and our old unit, but functional.
