Excitment plus fear = something something

Turns out we will shortly own part of a house which we will shortly live in. In 30 years or so, apparently, we'll own the whole house. The bank will let us stay in the house until then, which is nice of them, isn't it?

So all that cash we'll be paying out is not called 'rent' any more, they tell me.

We've run out of domestic sparkling wine.

So, thank you St George, thank you ACT Government's generous stamp duty concessions, thank you dead cousin Billy, thank you ball boys.

Especially thank you to all of you who are about to volunteer to turn up unannounced at our house and pack our books for us. Anyone? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

Congratulations on joining the ranks of proud owners of massive debt ;-)

How shortly is shortly?

Congratulations! And good luck with the books.

Ball boys?

Ampersand Duck said...

YAY! I would help, but am doing exactly the same thing over my way! We'll have to have housewarming cuppas in turn :)

Penthe said...

Yes, cuppas of relief all round, once it's all done.

Shayne, it's something tennis players always used to say at the Australian Open, not sure why it caught on as a thing to say.

Not too sure about much, this eve, actually.

sorry I'm late with the big congrats! Most generous of your bank - that made me giggle.

Hope the packing goes well
