DD2 becomes a home-owner...

Earlier this month my younger daughter took possession of the town house she had bought after much consideration and of course, much saving. In her previous moves to a number of rental properties, she always needed help in moving. This time she had things all organised so that family help wasn't required much to the relief of DH's back! So that we could have a look at her new place, I rang up and asked when it would be alright for us to come over. We got invited for dinner last Sunday night. I was to bring dessert...her favourite cake, my version of Black Forest Cake'.

The house is in a complex but it is not a gated community. It's still in Brisbane, but is a more northerly suburb to our place...probably about a 20 min-30 min drive for us. I had checked out if there was anything in particular she would like for her house and she gave us 2 suggestions...we bought her the slow cooker. It had to be white to match the other appliances in the kitchen.

Some wrapped gifts for DD2's 2 friends who have recently had babies :-)

It's a lovely modern little compact house. It has 2 good-sized bedrooms upstairs with a large bathroom and separate toilet. Both bedrooms have large built in robes. Downstairs is an open plan living and dining area that leads into a small kitchen. The laundry is a tiny room off the kitchen. There is a small courtyard as well at the back. The single garage is at the front. Thre is also a 'cloakroom' (loo and basin) near the internal door to the garage. After our tour of the house, we had a lovely meal and an enjoyable evening.
Boyfriend Phil was in charge of the roast beef!
The dining area opens on to the courtyard

Her house is set back behind the garages, giving some privacy in the complex
