Hickinbottom’s Aussie Ramblings


Posted by captainbeaky on September 19, 2007

I’ll start with the good news…we sold our house!!!!! wooo hoooo!!! Sold it for  little bit less than what we wanted for it, but its gone to a guy, who from the sounds of it is desperate to move in. Got his mortgage pre-approved and the estate agents reckon it would have all gone through (hopefully) in 5-6 weeks!!! Fantastic!Good news No.2 – Bought myself a TV today. 26″ LG LCD HDTV (bloody acronyms!). Brand new AND delivered for £370! Bargain!Bad news No.1, – we STILL dont have the money we tried to transfer from the UK! Bloody pain in the arses – it should have gone through nearly 2 weeks ago. Why is it banks always seem to have “problems” when you are transferring money?! Something to do with them earning interest off it while its in no-mans land?!?! Bunch of low life ingrates. Ive alrady given them a piece of my mind, layed it on proper thick (is this the best australian banks have to offer, its a disgrace etc…). Bad news No.2, – it looks like i wont have my xbox for when Halo 3 comes out! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! ………….NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!Been told I should have for back end of next week so its still not that bad………heck who am I kidding! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!Anyway, now the elation and trauma are out of the way, you get to hear about our exciting lives! Change of plans today – we didnt go to ikea. We plan to go tomorrow so we can go to the Target homeware sale on the way through, and the market to get tasty food. So today we spent tidying, washing up, doing our shopping at Safeway, eating cakes at another fantastic cake shop! Yum! On another “how things are better ere than at home” note. Today I will include phones (nearly everything is 3G and cheap), broadband (ADSL2+ is rolling out here, so thats up to 24mb/s) and TV (ok so they dont have as many channels but a lot of the stuff here is out the day after it airs in America. Prison Break, and the new series of Heroes included!).
