Okay, so we've checked the reports and decided they're okay. We've just signed the contract and sent the deposit money. Everything is falling into place now. The only question is how happy we'll be in Newcastle - sure, our families and some of our other loved ones (yes, you know who you are) live up there, but we also have very dear and much-loved friends (who likewise know who they are) here in Melbourne. So we're just going to have to travel down here a lot, using the profit we've made on this deal.

Right now, I'm giving away Champagne-flavoured kisses. Not that I'm giving them to just anybody.

Life is always interesting.

Russel, am I being uncivil?

No, but you had me going for a minute there. Beware of Poe's Law.

Pretty! You did say you longed for us all to come and visit, right?

Russell Blackford said...

Sure, Ophelia.

btw, we'll be an enjoyable two-hour drive on the rather good freeway from the north shore of Sydney. Somewhat further from the airport or the CBD, of course. That's for the information of anyone who does want to visit.
