Things are, of course, very busy here - preparing for the Handmade Market on December 4th, making stock for Shop Handmade, psyching myself up for the dreaded end of year school reports, and the biggest of all moving! I can finally reveal that we are moving to Young, NSW (the cherry capital of Australia) which is a really pretty town about 2 hours away from Canberra.
We found THE house in July, negotiated the price and agreed on all the terms and conditions. Since then it has been a waiting game to exchange contracts. We enrolled the children in their new schools, I have taken long service leave from my teaching job, organised (and paid for!) solicitors and inspections on the house and other general moving business.
And then last Monday it all came to a crunching halt. After more than 4 months the people we are buying the house from have withdrawn from the sale. I won't go into too much detail as it is not a nice story but we will hopefully have better news on Friday. However, we have made up our mind to move there.
Fingers crossed for more positive news on Friday!
