WILL TODAY BE THE DAY?

The state of play when we went to bed last night was that the house owners had accpeted our offer verbally, but won't be signing the contract till some time today.....

SO, TODAY ALL GOING WELL WE WILL HAVE BOUGHT OUR NEW HOME!!!

If you want to have a look go Here:
http://www.realestate.co.nz/ .... Listing Number: PMN 10344

It is a lovely house, needs nothing done to it... and we love it. It is much smaller than we are used to, but hey, it's for us and the two little kids..... not the whole family! If they visit they will be sleeping in the garage! LOL (not really, we will have a spare bedroom).

I intend on having a very quiet day today, yesterday wiped me out.... and I am really struggling to drink enough of ANYTHING, which is giving me headaches... AND NO, I don't drink tea or coffee or water..... or much of anything right now! It's a real problem.... I am going to try WATER today!!! SHUT UP .... I know I hate water and have always said I would not drink it... but I'm dehydrating away to nothing.... and I think this is why I feel like shit all the time. So ... water with lots of ice is on the menu today. We will see how it goes ..... later....

12.30 pm... still waiting to hear from 'their' Agent.. but we are quite sure it will all go ahead.
WANNA: the listing number is : PMN 10344....
It is a 'spanish looking' place, blue kitchen... bla bla bla, will get photos up eventually when I get home.
It has passed an Engineer's report, building report and has been checked for water tightness by another company.. it is FINE on all counts. This house is 5 years old.... needs no work... which Stew loves. (lazy bugger!) *smiling*

Onward... feeling marginally better today, not doing anything!
End of Day: I don't think the purchase will be a DONE DEAL today afterall.... the owners are dicking around with their finances and they have to try and get the owners of the house THEY ARE BUYING to come down in price a bit... it is all so frustrating. I am sure we will have gone unconditional tomorrow before we leave for Palmerston North again.... GOD I HATE THE WAITING. I wish I could scream!
NSV: going to Weight Watchers tonight before dinner.... so I'm not avoiding going even though I'm up here in Auckland! I am being a good girl. I have been darn good with my food all week, yet I don't feel any lighter... I suppose we will wait and see. nite nite, and hopefully by tomorrow we WILL own our new home (well at settlement date anyway).

  2. Looks like a great place :-D

    And regarding the water thing, good luck! You can always try putting a slice of lemon/lime/orange in there to make it not so boring. :-)

  3. I love the house!!! Just be extra careful with the cladding though. Are you absolutely sure this won't be a leaky home? I'm paranoid about this - it does say 15 year guarantee but have you had it tested? When was it built etc... can't be too careful with cladding.

  7. chris do you have crystal light there? or any of the mix and drink flavors for water? I personally cant as a rule stand nakid water but on rare occasions I will partake... I like the raspberry flavored crystal light and the peach tea some folks love the lemonaid flavored one but i am nto a lemonaid kind of person... and like you I dont get enough water in.... I am happy for you on the house and can't wait till you are all settled in and comfy... hope you get some rest

  17. We've only bought one home before and there's a lot of things we would do differently if we could. Like having a bigger yard and a house that isn't too tall to paint by youself.

  19. I think that house is perfect and don't worry about it being smaller, you'll soon adapt. Just think, smaller power bills!

  21. Very nice house !!!

    Over here, we can get little sachets of powdered drink like these...

    http://liptont.com/our_products/iced_tea_to_go/index.asp

    You just pop them into your water bottle or 20 oz glass of water and shake or stir.

    Can you get them in NZ ? Or something similar?

  25. Good luck with the water. Personally, ALL I drink is water. Sure, I occasionally drink orange juice but it is pretty much just water. I stopped drinking carbonated beverages when I was about 17. My Mom stopped drinking caffeine and so didn't have it in the house and I just sort of stopped too which led to me not drinking anything carbonated. HATE coffee and tea and pretty much everything hot.

    I am boring but a cheap date!
