Lucinda is asleep as I write this, still struck down with a stomach bug that has left her absolutely zonked for four days now.
HOWEVER, there is good news - I'm about to finish packing up the car, drive on out of Brisbane and up the highway to pick up the keys to the new house!
We haven't had any progress with the settlement change of dates. Turns out it's the bank's fault - they haven't done what they needed to do to get settlement happening today. Yesterday, we got a call from the agent representing the sale of our house in Brisbane. Same deal with that settlement - the bank gave the buyer one day's notice they wouldn't be able to complete it.
It defies belief, really. Two banks, two settlements, a chain of people buying and selling on the same day who are now out of pocket.
Settlement is now next week on both deals, and the owners of the post office have agreed to give us early possession of the house.
So, we can get the keys today, get cleaning tonight and wait for the arrival of our furniture and things tomorrow.
We're booked into a motel the next few days. My car is chock full of our possessions and everything we need to survive a few more days of this nomadic life.
I am very much looking forward to getting moved in though, and getting some kind of routine back - hopefully with a recovered child.
Thanks everyone for your wishes, I will be a bit more present with some photos soon and able to communicate back a little!
