All in a Week and last time from Bundalong

Bundalong is Sold!
This time last week it was Pete celebrating his last day at work ..... but since then alot has happened .... Mothers Day on Sunday, then Monday Night this happened ........


And last night it went unconditional!!!  Which means we have Sold!!!!  Settlement should take place somewhere around the June long weekend depending on solicitors and banks




Tuesday was a farewell lunch from the wonderful Pulm Group which was great!

Louise & I - Physio and Nursing with the lovely brooch I was given
Brooch and handmade card from the group

And Wednesday as well as being my birthday was also my last day of work at the hospital in Wangaratta.  I was spoilt with some wonderful gifts and a great afternoon tea!

Since yesterday its been all systems go as I try to get the extra paperwork completed, and packing
The lovely card and gifts from work - talk about spoilt!!

done amidst a couple of goodbye dinners/ drinks.  Eldest son managed to pop into work to say goodbye (not sure he will get out over the weekend) and gave me his footy jersey from the Mothers Day game (which I missed due to the building inspection!)


I had thought I would have time to sit and do a bit of knitting tonight, but it seems that is a long way off at this stage!   
We've woken up to a very Foggy Saturday Morning ...... with internet still working, although it was meant to be cut off yesterday ..... hopefully I'll get alot accomplished this morning and can sit for a bit of knitting later ...........
Not sure if I'll get another post in from Bundalong as the removalist truck arrives Monday morning and we will be leaving as soon as they have it all packed up, and I have the house here cleaned ...... hoping to make it as far as Dubbo on Monday afternoon if we can leave here by lunch time, if not we may be staying at Parkes .............  the plan for Tuesday is up at the crack O Dawn and drive the rest of the way through (somewhere between 10 - 13 hours plus food/fuel/doggy stops).  So I'm expecting next time I post will be from our new home in Queensland .......... see you all there!!

Bye for now and big hugs,
Pete, Scruffy and I  - Not long before we start the trip up!

Wow! Sharmayne, big news! Safe travels to your new home.

Congratulations on your retirement and the sale of your home. Sounds like you have a big move ahead of you. Exciting and tiring at the same time as moving is always so much work. We've always done it the hard way and moved everything ourselves. You're smart and hired movers which will help with the work load.
I wish you well with the move and your new home. Much love to you as you embark on this new chapter in your life.
