No Grey Hairs Yet!

At the beginning of this year, I decided I wanted two things on my 30th birthday. To not have any grey hairs, and to have purchased our first house. The big Three-Oh is now two months away.

I’m holding strong on achieving #1 – none to be spied :giggle: And #2 was fulfilled today, hooray! In fact we will settle on the house 6 days after my birthday. I’m so happy that hunting is over. I plan never to look in a real estate agent’s window or website again… until the next time 😆

October is going to be quite the month for me in fact. The 11th is Happy Birthday Mel, the 13th is the deadline for my major assignment in Usability Eng, the 15th is the rollout for our major assignment in Web Database Applications, and the 17th is the settlement. I am scared… very scared. We will probably have an extra week or so tenancy in our current place, so moving can be stretched out a bit, but still…

Our house (our house…. teehee!) is nothing super-special. It will need sprucing up over time, but is perfectly liveable as is. It’s 3-bedrooms, has heating and cooling (big bonus!), and good sized front and back yards (better bonus!) I can’t wait 😎

  1. Congratuations on the lack of greys! Just after my mother died, I was out eating with my sister when she reached out across the table and pulled out one of my hairs. “It’s a grey”, she casually announced… I freaked out on the spot (I was 26) the she revealed she had been pulling her own out for years (she was 23!).
    Even bigger congratulations on your new home!

  2. Yay! A new house! Break open the bubbly! Congratulations!

  3. Congratulations Mel! Enjoy your new home 🙂
