The fiancee's contract is up at the end of the month, so she is looking for work. She hasn't had permanent full time work since we moved up here, and she can easily get permanent full time work in The nation's crappital. She can make most excellent $$$ there too, as they are desperate for people who do what she does. So, resumes have been flying around the net, jobs applied for, and we have been studying Canberra's rental property form. I need some garage space (for project truckasaurus and vehicle maintenence), and we need somewhere that will tolerate two small dogs that are very well behaved and short haired. It will be a good thing, we'll be less than 2 hours from our block of land, so we can organise to get things done and actually be there to sign off, supervise etc and I should be able to get work down there, there's not much up here unless your a mate of someone's it would seem! :roll: I'm ramping up making the house look presentable, been painting, retiling areas of the bathroom etc. Not sure whether to short term rent this place out till the market looks a bit better (and risk dodgy tenants!) or just sell and be done with it. I wouldn't get enough in rent to pay the mortgage either..... So, look out Canberra! Regards, Andrew.
