Handover tomorrow

Tomorrow is the big day, we have handover booked in for 12:30 (assuing everything has been fixed that we indentified at inspection).

We are really excited to be getting the keys and to be moving on the weekend.

The whole process from tender has been 19 months so a long time coming. At least we know that after this there won't be another move for a long time.

There will be lots to do around the house I'm sure but it will be well worth it.

Getting Close now

Hubby followed up with our SS today and they are only waiting on a replacement toilet seat now to complete all the fixes from our list of issues from our inspection.

We are booked in to check the fixes and if all okay will handover on Friday at lunchtime.

I know I'm jumping the gun but I have got the cheque from the bank and have decided to book in the removalists for this saturday (no chance if we wait til Friday afternoon). I feel okay doing this as our main issues were external or visable from outside so only a few minor things to check inside.

Checking my to do list, things are looking good

Interim OC - DONE, received
Electricity Connection - DONE
GAS Connection - DONE
Water Connection - DONE
Book removalists - DONE
Home & Contents Insurance
Delivery of Bins from Council - DONE
Get Boundary fence installed - being done this week
Quotes for Blinds
Installation of TV Antenea - Booked in for next Monday
Delivery & Installation of Diswasher - Booked in for next Monday
Mail re-direction from Australia Post

A great day!!

Today we had our 18-20 week morphology scan. I am pleased to say it went well only thing to watch is that I have a low lying placenta so will have to have another scan later in the pregnancy to see if it has corrected itself. We also found out bub's gender, a boy! Hubby is very happy although all was good as long as it is healthy.

On the house front we also received our interim occupancy certificate so I can have peace in knowing when we hand over we can move right in. Tomorrow I wil ring our SS to check we are still on track for next week.

To Do list

Since move-in day is fast approaching, I thought I better create a "to do" list to make sure nothing is forgotton. So far I have:

Interim OC
Electricity Connection
GAS Connection
Water Connection (notify Sydney water so to get a water meter)
Book removalists
Home & Contents Insurance
Delivery of Bins from Council
Get Boundary fence installed
Quotes for Blinds
Installation of TV Antenea
Delivery & Installation of Diswasher
Mail re-direction from Australia Post

I think that's all but that should keep me busy for a while!
