Initiate moaning mode

This neighbourhood, like many of the ones we journeyed through on our quest to find a house, is the quietest place you could possibly envisage. On our expeditions to the various estates, roads, lanes, crescents, and avenues across the top portion of Western Australia, we were lucky to see a single soul outdoors. No families …

Merry Christmas, all a’ y’all!

This Christmas has been a strange one for me, mainly because it feels like we’vee not actually been celebrating it at the right time this year. For example, everyone knows how much the traditionals Christmas hymns and carols refer to the dark nights and snowy winter weather. Over here, it’s been about 35ΒΊC. Yet this …

The chaos continues; also I rant about hygiene

Today was another one of those days where the amount of energy spent seems horrendously out of proportion with the results you get at the end of it. Mum said, I think quite rightly, that she’d been on her feet all day – that’s possibly true for the rest of us. All we needed to …

We has a house – Stage 2 of… ???

Some kind of transaction thingy has happened or something, so now that (I think) we have… …we can actually seal the deal with our estate agent, which we’ll be doing in about 24 hours. So we’ll soon be living in an actual house for a third of the original price with about eight times the …

Truth be told, there’s really not been a lot of things happening round here. …

Two decades on this planet, also Doom turns eighteen

I suppose this is quite significant to my life so I think I’ll make a blog post about it. (Late by ten days though it is.) (Also that cake wasn’t mine.) On November 30, 2011, I celebrated the 20th anniversary of my inception into this world. Two decades. 20 years. 240 months. 1,040 weeks. 7,305 …

Phew, that was a close one

So, the mortgage company have apparently decided to finally withdraw their heads from their sphincters. The house has officially sold and the money is now in our laps. Everyone’s a happy bunny now. More or less. πŸ˜€

Nope.
Chaos in Pictures: An odyssey of insanity as described by James Paddock; illustrated by Ben P

Well, this has been hell. Thank Christ there’s no return trip this time around, so we won’t have to repeat this whole series of events. I wouldn’t wish the chaos that comes with the arduous process of emmigration on my worst enemy. This emmigration thing has spanned roughly three years of systematic chaos, and three …
