Moving House!

Just a quick update....

We got the apartment we really wanted! We pick up the keys on my birthday and move in that weekend. ! ! ! ! ! Woooohooooo ! ! ! ! !

It's on the Northern Beaches which is where we really want to be - in Mona Vale. It's a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment with a double garage. And the view....... *sigh* the view is just absolutely amazing!!! On the one side, we have the Mona Vale Golf Course & in front of us is Mona Vale Beach! When Scott & I walked into the apartment last Saturday to view it, we knew immediately that it was the right one - it's got a very similar feel to our apartment in Pinelands at Kindroggan.

Click on this one to enlarge - it's an image from Google Earth. As you can see, it's a North East facing apartment so we'll have loads of sunlight & warmth.

The block from the road - our apartment is in a similar block behind this one

The Mona Vale Golf Course across the road

The kitchen

The main bathroom - there's another one en-suite as well

And this is why we wanted it so badly....!

So I start work at a golf club on 19 August and we move into our new apartment in Golf Avenue on 29 August.... I guess it was just meant to be! :-)

Now it's back to packing and arranging another move!

Cheers for now!

Hey guys
Wow!! Wow!! Wow!!


Congratulations. The view looks spectacular... I am green with envy over that balcony. Next time Warren and I are in Sydney we'd like to invite ourselves for a barbie on that balcony!
Hope you guys are really happy there!!

ps Warren said "Gratz guys!!!"

You've all got an open invitation for a barbie on the balcony!!! *sigh*

We miss you all loads and wish we could just say "Come on over on Saturday!". We really do need to start making a concerted effort to meet some people here. With summer coming up, we'll probably end up joining the local tennis club - apparently very social and plenty of exercise! And of course there's the swimming pool on the beach.... I'm not too sure about the "moer 'n soek" though (aka golf)!

Oooooo - that does look lovely! Magnificent view - just stunning!

Seabee said...

That looks great - but I don't like the look of the temperature your gauge is showing!

The Mupersans said...

14 degrees is just too friggin' cold, isn't it!!!????
Summer's almost here! Yippee!!!
