House hunting, Meat and Life.

Hubs and I finally decided to start looking for a house to rent! YAYAYYAYAAYAYAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We got sick of waiting for his work to make up their minds on where he will be placed.

We are going on 7 months of living with my hubs family. I can't say it has been all roses and sunshine, but it hasn't always been bad either.

I think mostly I just want my own space and privacy, and it gets to me not having that. Even to be able to enjoy each others company in peace, once the little one is in bed. I never thought that would be such a luxury, I miss that the most. 

I have always been quite an independent girl and then woman, to the point of stubbornness, and i think it upsets my Mother In Law that I am like this. I enjoy making my own food, washing my own clothes and cleaning my own house/space. Not that I'm saying that any of this gets done for me, I do all my own cooking and cleaning (well most of the cooking, I do live in a Greek house LOL) Honestly if any of you have lived in or with old school Europeans, my goodness, there is always HUGE amounts of food! Its nuts. I could feed the whole neighbourhood with the amount of food cooked here weekly. Mostly I like to continue eating exactly as I did before, and to cook it myself. Even though I continue to get these poor girl are you only eating that??? looks. Its only cause I refuse to have half a cow or pig on my plate each and every night. It makes me ill having too much meat. It will always remind me of this clip


in "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" The funniest thing I believe in this movie, and on top of that, she looks like my Aunt bahahahahahahaha!

Anyway, we have been looking for a house to rent in Sydney now for 2 weeks. It is nuts! There doesn't seem to be anything decent around :(:(:( Well at least something that isn't over priced and either way too big, or falling apart. It is very disheartening, fingers crossed we get something very soon.

We have set a 2 month minimum to move by. For no other reason other than it will be G's first birthday! We would like to be in our own place by then for it. Strange? Maybe, but we would just like to have our own place for the special day. Neither hubs or I want have it here. We are thinking about having it in a park as an alternative, the only problem is that it is winter, and it may be quite cold or worse raining GAH!

  5. How exciting! I hope you find a place to call your own.
    And I love that pic and that movie, I remember when I told me relatives that I was a vegetarian and didn't eat meat, they said OK and then piled chicken and fish unto my plate ahaha - my yia yia still doesnt understand :)

    And for our little one's 1st bday (my how time flies hey) we are hoping to do it at a scout hall in a park that way if its sunny the kids can all play on the swings but if it's raining then at least we have some shelter and a place to sit in the hall (it's basically one room with a kitchenette and toilet) - maybe that could be an option for you guys if the weather is wet?

    1. Aren't European relos the best?! LOL
      My husband and I have given up on trying to explain anything to them. We have kind of hit pause on our lives for now, hopefully we will find a house and be done with the CRAY!

      Thats a great idea about the hall. But we dont have that many people to invite. We will see when it gets a little closer to the time what we shall do.
      Our girls are going to be big soon :(:(:( and :):):)

  7. Yay! A happy development! When I use to rent, I was GLAD/more the happy to/thrilled to pay my rent!! LOVED IT! It was worth every single cent to have my own space!
    It will be soooo good! I hope you find a place soon.
    I know what you mean about G's bday and not celebrating it there or being there. That is how I felt about our first year wedding anniversary... unfortunately, it was rather unremarkable and spent in woop woop! ARGHHHH. OH well. Good things do indeed come to those who are patient.
