Progress!

Well I’ve been back home for nearly 10 weeks now.   We’ve moved house three times in that period.  Both of us are now actively looking for work.   And both of us have had interviews – hopefully they will lead to permanent employment soon.

In the mean time we have been looking for an apartment to buy.  We were very excited by one of them but pulled out at the last minute as there were just too many negatives and it wasn’t in an area that we loved enough to compromise that much.

However today we signed – different apartment, different area.   Yay us!  Completion due end of 2017.  Footscray here we come.

Following are pictures taken from the 4th floor of an adjacent building – I think our view will be better as we will be on the 11th floor – but this will be our view.  The docks are moving to Williamstown, so all the red cranes will be parkland.   That will also open up the view of the Maribyrnong River – which is just one block away – lots of walking and bike riding to be had.
