What a whirlwind week for my husband. As if coming home from war straight to a family funeral wasn't dramatic enough . . . a Monday morning meeting with our accountant readjusted his discharge plans. See, soldiers aren't paid much but they do get reduced rent Army housing, which helps as they move us interstate every couple of years (it would be difficult to keep buying & selling your family home!!) but you lose this housing the day you discharge. While we still dream of a farm & a Queenslander style family home in the country . . . by putting off the discharge for a year, we can chose land, plan the home properly, so when he does discharge, we move straight into our own home, no rent (rent is impossible for a family of 6 + dog in Canberra or surrounds!!) Yippee, smooth transition from his career for everyone.
Happy Creative Spacing everyone, love Posie
PS anyone else love a Queenslander style home . . . verandah all the way around the outside, bull nose roofing, a breezeway, open doors & curtains blowing in the breeze, cows on green grass, can't see your neighbours, full on market vegetable garden . . . carried away?? Me?? Never!!
