Here's my Saturday.
|07:00||Woke up for my regular "breakfast", i.e. email, slashdot, and SMH.|
|08:00||First attempt to get Vivian off the bed. Tough luck. Go back to have shower and read more posts on the up-coming Panther.|
|08:30||Vivian "seems" to be up. We realised that there are a lot of properties that we need to look at. Fire up Safari to go to domain.com.au to get all the inspection details.|
|09:25||All data's ready. Then Grace called for tech support on the faulty floppy diskette containing her assignment. Tried to do scandisk but does not work. Things learnt -- never use a floppy diskette for anything important.|
|10:00||Arrived at the first property at south Kingsford. Dodgy looking 2 bedroom house with tiny little land. We did not even ask about the possible starting price of the auction.|
|11:00||Seen a few houses in Kingsford and Maroubra. Jaw dropping price for some really dodgy place, that might need a total renovation or a total rebuild. Don't think that's what we are after...|
|12:00||Another few places in Matriville and Chifley. They are a bit far from the uni so not that good for ministry. Quiet suburbs though, comparing to Kingsford. Saw one agent whom we saw a few weeks ago, but I don't think he can remember us.|
|12:30||Went all the way back to Mascot for a small nice house. Not brick but nicely presented. But Mascot is unfortunately on the flight path, and the street next to it is quite busy.|
|13:00||Went to Oporto's in Maroubra for lunch. Gee we were hungry.|
|13:30||Went to another house in Chifley for inspection. Maybe I'll call it a "ruin" instead. It is really falling apart, in a state that is totally unlivable. I felt sorry for the girl who was responsible for selling it.|
|14:00||Finish with the last inspection, and head down to East Gardens for shopping. Because I only got my car back yesterday from the smash repair, we have not gone shopping for quite a while...|
|16:00||Got back home from East Gardens, loaded with grocery.|
Home hunting is certainly not my favourite Saturday leisure.
