Hold the phone!
Yes! I didn't buy wine!
Even more so, yes! We are buying a holiday house. Bit exciting. I am trying not to wish the rest of the year away, waiting for the settlement date on our two bedroom stone house. Our second home will be in Pelicans Point, about half an hour away. A quiet seaside hamlet just down the road. Got it for a steal. It will be available for holiday rental early next year, tell all your friends.
Anyhoo, I should have bought wine. The Land Rover overheated on the way home, and it took us 50 minutes to drive 26 kays. A mate came and towed us home. Boggy has some mechanical work to do.....
We kept having to stop, to let it cool and put more water in. These are some of the views at our stops along the way. It became a bit of a thing for me to take a photo every time we stopped, with my phone of course. Times when I wish I'd remembered to take my 'good' camera.
|We did stop at the IGA in Penola for supplies for the way home. I did let the kids and Boggy have one each. Should have bought wine.|
|Could have bought wine. The Leconfield cellar door was twenty metres away.|
I've also joined all the local buy, swap and sell facebook groups and am becoming a Gumtree ninja. So much cheap stuff out there, some crap too. We are furnishing it pretty well though, on the cheap.
I have this hankering to call our new house, La Casa Pelicano( The pelican house). What do you think? I want it to have a mediterranean feel, but I fear it is going to turn out hodge podge shabby chic. But who cares! Hello! HOLIDAY HOUSE!!
If you had a holiday house, what would you call it?
What's your favourite website for looking for and booking holiday houses? (yes this is sneaky research)
