Default The Good News Only Thread - Post your good news here!

All too often, all we post on BE are our moans and gripes. So I thought it would be nice to have a thread where we can share our good news - visas, house sales, qualifications, new jobs, house purchases etc, etc.....

Away you go!

Just sick of the sound of my own whinging. Wanted to hear some good news for a change. I have plenty of bad news which I will freely share on other threads if anyone is interested.

I have been having nagging doubts about our choice for a while. I love the heat - I hate being cold. I'm the person who has thick cardi's on when everyone else is in t-shirts.
We met up with the stuckinblighty's on Sunday and it got us thinking about our decision. (It's all Lee's fault ).

Now all the research starts again. Where are the affordable family suburbs close to The Royal Brisbane or Princess alexandra?
