How did this happen? It wasn't supposed to be ready till March - yet i got a call Wednesday to say it was ready and if i wanted i could get the keys early.
With my sister making the long trip home from Vancouver for Christmas and our not knowing when she might next be back. I took the plunge and figured why the hell not. Well besides the obvious fact that bank repayments will now be starting - but i guess they'd have started eventually and the sooner they do, the faster i can adjust to the hit on my salary each month & the quicker it'll all be paid off.
Now both my sisters can see my new flat as soon as they land off the planes. I haven't told them, I want to surprise them on our way back from collecting them from the airport with a quick detour.

I can share some photos of bare rooms if anyone wants to see (i don't mean totally bare, tiling, painting, bathroom fittings, windows, doors etc are all in) ... or you can wait for furnished pictures whenever I manage to start furnishing lolz
As i wasn't expecting keys till March, the order for the couch was only made at the start of Dec, so it won't be ready until end of Feb/early March. I have to contact the shop i bought the kitchen from tomorrow and see when they might be able to come install it - probably not before next year due to short notice.
I honestly didn't think I'd be ticking that item off my 30 b4 30 list this quickly - i figured it would'nt be until next year! #freakout

Some of my favourite features include wood-look tiles in bedrooms & bathrooms; the stone-work on the bath & the glass door entering living area. Plus the terrace is massive, but i didn't get photos of that yesterday as it was getting dark and raining.
