Call it gut instinct, call it female intuition, call it slightly too much to drink ... when i saw this house i just wanted to live there.

I, like so many other wannabe ozzies, spend rather a lot of time browsing the internet looking at potential homes for my family (hmmm probably should get a hobby) ... and there it was ... and i wasnt even looking for myself.  I was actually searching for a city apartment for my parents (yes i know they are in the uk and do not have a visa .... long story that i will no doubt get back to at a later date).  But anyway: two bedroom house, right in the centre of melbourne, back yard, needs loads of work doing to it:



  
Now just so you understand the bizarre nature of this 'gut feeling' of mine, the house we have always said we want in oz is semi-rural, has 4 bedrooms, a pool and a couple of acres of land (big plans for kitchen garden and mini-orchard etc etc ... ).  Dont mind a bit of updating but didnt want major renovations (done that, got the t-shirt ).

So why in the world have i picked this house?  Short answer - i have no idea ..... come to think of it long answer - i have no idea .
All i know is that the more i looked at this house the more i could imagine living there.  I was even planning how we could work the sleeping arrangements until we could extend and add a third bedroom ...  and then i looked again at the details ... and my stomach actually sank.  This house goes to auction on the 10th Feb.  I actually felt quite gutted .  Someone else is going to buy it and 'do it up' and then it wont be the same house anymore.

Feeling quite depressed about it now - i think it is time to stop looking at houses in Oz and spend more time sorting out the house i have yet to sell .... at least for a few days anyway .
