Today's vista

aka "the view inside my head".
Glad everyone loved the little house yesterday as much as me! Alas, it will remain in my dreams, as it's not a practical option... we really need at least 3 bedrooms, as we need a piano room for the Fella (to teach from) and a bedroom for Miss C (Fella's 11 year old) to commandeer when we're lucky enough to have her around. Currently this house is my favourite of the Ballarat offerings. I'm also conscious of getting a place that does NOT need renovations, because I lived for years mid reno in Portionvilla, and I am not prepared to live in mess right now or do any expensive house alterations. Plus I want central Ballarat, so the train station is easy. Oh, the Drewzel-parents (aka my mum and dad) are not at all keen of the Ballarat option, Mum expressing her disapproval by saying "But it's so cold there." Cold we can cope with Mum, ridiculous mortgages on a public servant salary ~ we can't.

One of the good things about blogging is that you can blurt all this sort of stuff out, and then go back and read it in a month and laugh...hopefully when you've sorted your woes. I like to use my blog as a sort of journal/scrapbook, and if anyone reads it, that's only a bonus for me. I know there's some out there who take blogging very seriously ...and I suppose because an internet presence is an easily available and powerful form of marketing these days. Lucky I've got nothing to market, except my malaise, and no one's buying that. I guess my point is, I'm trying to focus on the positive, because I know when I've sorted my house/work quandry I'll look back and say "Oh it wasn't that bad"...but right now, oh I'm stressing. I'm one of those people that know if I have to do something like move or buy a new car I want it done ASAP, otherwise I'll obsess about it. And right now I'm in obsessing phase. So I'll send a message out to the Universe asking it to help my have my shit sorted by the end of the month. Is that too much to ask?

P.S. Internet Explorer you suck. You make my blog template look askew. Blah. If any boffins out there know how to fix it, please let me know.


  1. I had a look for you Steph...and I can see you in this little beauty.
    Period with random 70's kitsch.
    The house is are looking at is LOVELY. Me likey.
    I love your malaise. Don't apologise or hold anything back misses. It's your place. We are special to be able to read it.

  2. Aww Toni, ta! xx
    Yep I loves me a Californian Bungalow, but alas that gorgeous one you suggested is more than I can pay right now.
    I think a jaunt to B-rat is needed for some inspections. :P


Oh hello! I do like a wee comment, that way I know you exist!
Sorry I had to turn the ANNOYING word verification back on, but I've been getting too much spam lately. :(
