It’s all been happening here.  After lots of delays, I got a phone call today saying that our finance has been approved for both apartments we want to purchase.  This is a good thing, especially as I’ve already started buying stuff for them.  😀  What kind of stuff?  Beds, dining tables and chairs, towels, a whole assortment of things.  It’s one of the most fun parts of property investing, getting all the gear to set them up.

I’m also in the throes of organising tenants for two of our rentals – one a current property, and one that we’re buying (the tenants don’t need to move in until the end of September, by which time we’ll own it).  That’s taking up a bit of time also, back and forth with emails and questions.  However it looks like we’ll be getting a good rental return, and so it’s all worth it.  One thing I’ve learned though is that nothing’s in the bag until it’s confirmed, so we’ll see what eventuates.

In amongst all this, I’ve been busy at work, with lots of stuff happening that needs to be sorted out.  It’s keeping me out of trouble anyhow, which my boss would be glad to know.  I struggled a bit last week, and ended up having Friday off, as I couldn’t shake the lingering effects of the flu.  However I’m feeling a lot better this week, and more able to get on top of things.

C’s birthday last week went well.  He got thoroughly spoiled, although we didn’t do anything special on the actual day as I was still very unwell.  But he was treated like a king, and got some great birthday presents, so he was happy 🙂
