I'd give you a link to the real estate page and you could see more photos than I've saved, but that would put my new address up there for all to see and I'm not doing that.
This is the loungeroom looking onto balcony. A new vertical blind will go on the window. I don't really like them but it's practical as this is also a door and doorway can have blind opened. The closed door leads to the second bedroom and the kitchen is out of sight to the right.
One of my ideals was to have a polished floor and this falls down here. Again it's something I'll live with for a while before deciding what to do.
The units are built facing outward from around a central atrium. Not a true atrium but that's an easy description. The small kitchen windows open onto that. There are a lot of plants there and it''s well kept and the plants are healthy. There are stairs and a lift and I have a parking space on the title in a secured underground car park.
Transport is easily accessible and I can walk to another shopping centre which caters to a large Italian population so there are wonderful meats and cheeses.
So instead of building castles in the air, I now have to start making some firm decisions. Washing machines? Fridges? Accent colours? Lounge suites? The place will be painted white all through. I like some splashes of colour but again, I'll observe for a while before doing anything drastic.
When I received confirmation that exchange had gone through I bought myself a tiny silver house for my Pandora bracelet as a celebration.
