Can you believe it. We arranged to see a couple of houses early that day. We loved the second place we saw, put in an immediate application, paid the bond and picked up the keys that afternoon!

It's a 3 bedroom house on a gated community in Carina - a really nice part of Brisbane. We've got a garage (with remote control electric door and everything!), a separate laundry room, en-suite master bedroom, the second bedroom has got it's own balacony, fitted kitchen with dishwasher, the lot. There's a shared pool near enough next door to our house along with a BBQ area. Only problem - it's unfurnished.

After picking up the keys we immediately headed down to Capalaba to a couple of furniture stores we had been recommended. Within the 2 hours we had before they closed we managed to buy a really nice sofa (or lounge as they call them over here) and Queen size bed. We actually got 2 sofa's - one 3 seater and one 2 seater, both in Coffee coloured suede fabric.

I'll post photo's when it's all set up. We managed to get free delivery for the sofas to be delivered the next day.

We stayed another night at Cath's and managed to stay up until 10pm this time!
