Yes, you heard that right.
We are moving.
No where exotic. Just 2 streets over. We didn't buy a house, even though our current landlords offered us the house again at a lot lower price than last year. But we decided we did not want to renovate this house as we are not in LOVE with this house. We have been watching the real estate listing, but realized that we aren't sure we want to sink over half a million into a house in the suburbs when in 2 years nothing is holding us to the high school catchment area anymore. So we have decided to rent until our youngest graduates high school. It buys us time and hopefully time to save up more. As homes are so darn expensive here.
The new rental we are moving into is a bigger home, bigger yard and is being partially renovated! Hardwood floors, a white kitchen and open and airy! Can't wait to decorate. They are painting the interior and exterior of the house. I may have to repaint as I am not sure it is a colour I want. It's neutral but just not me. Can't wait to show you photos!!!!
And for some strange reason they are leaving the wallpaper in the powder room, think music sheets and violins all over the walls! First thing to go...
I will miss the gardens at my current home. It took me 6 years to get them where they are, and I love them. The new place has way more garden space and the current landlords pulled everything out. Now there is a blank slate. They asked me what I wanted, even told me if I want to go buy what I want and plant it, they will pay me back! I like that.
My son is happy we finally have room for a trampoline...but he is almost 16. Do you still need a trampoline at 16?
I get to spend July purging, organizing and packing! And now I hope I will have more to blog about!
