I caught up with some friends tonight who’ve recently bought an apartment together.
They lived together for a long time, and then lived alone, and now they’re back living together.
And this time, they’ve bought an apartment together which they’re slowwwwwwly getting ready for inhabitation.
You might recall I helped last year in the removal process, which was quite speedy.
Getting the apartment ready is a far slower process, as they’re spending most weekends looking for curtains, carpet, organising painting and so on. I’ve learned some interesting things through their efforts, such as Birkenhead Point being a waste of space as a shopping centre, and IKEA selling non-standard Australian size quilts and sheets.
Anyway, it was great to be the first Australian citizen to see their apartment, and it looks great.
Aside from that, it’s been a day of work, and also visiting my friend who is in hospital at the moment. He’s in better shape now than he was before I went home to Lismore, though still not well.
