Day 296 Thursday 19th January 2012
What a day today has been! So many mixed emotions…from feeling sad to be leaving where we have lived for the past 3 years to moving to my first ever house and a new beginning!
I was hoping and praying that I would be able to see one last sunrise in Manly and this photo is of it. I was able to take this before the removal men arrived (they came at 6:45am). The men were amazing I have to say. Nothing was too much trouble, not once did I here them moan or complain and they were super quick, considering they were being paid an hourly rate.
By 10am, they had finished loading the truck and we said that we would meet them at our new house, as we had to collect the keys for the house from the real estate guy and get the final completion done.
We drove to to Avoca Beach, went into the office, were told by a phone call that the house was indeed ours, then the key was given to us, along with a bucket filled to the brim with goodies from the agent, I then got emotional, gave him a big hug and that was it….I am now a house owner!!
The removal men were there in our garden, lying on the grass waiting for us, we opened up and they moved us in.
Goodbye Manly….hello Avoca Beach
