And it begins

We got a quotation on the removal costs on Thursday, and just confirmed the details.

The removalists will be coming over on Saturday the 31st of March or Sunday the 1st of April to do the packing we require (we are not packing any of the breakables, and I do not want to pack all my books, so we're getting the professionals to do it), and the first pick up will be Monday the 2nd of April. Second and final pick up will be Saturday the 28th of April, and we're going to be flying out to Melbourne with the kids on Sunday the 29th of April.

Less than two weeks until it starts, less than six weeks until it's done.

Which leads me to the next question: Where in Melbourne should we move to? We want to be someone reasonably central to things, and from what I've seen by looking on the on-line real estate sites, Brunswick looks like a good choice. Central, with good public transport, reasonably priced for something that will suit us. Any other suggestions?

OTOH, in ten years of living in various places in Brunswick, I've been broken into only once.

Northern and eastern subs are a good bet for public transport. Nigel, Renee and Nikki have been knocked over a couple of times, but I haven't heard of anyone else having that problem. B and Rob used to live about 1 minutes walk further down the road..... *nods*

Preston is good for transport, market and price ... relatively low crime rate, too. :-P

I lived east and then North. I think I enjoyed North more. I had access to to tram lines, a train line and buses when I lived in Preston and I was spitting distance from the Preston Market.

And it was easier to get into the city than from the East if you drove, despite the traffic.

One thing you will want to consider is if you are travelling to and from the airport. When I lived East I pretty muchly had to use citylink... When I lived in Preston I didn't.

Caulfield is a nice area as well...

I have heard that certain areas in Brunswick are good. So you may still want to check it out.

Look around and go with what is right for you.

Where ever you go. Try and not get a place on a main road. Get one on a side street, just off a main road, at least.

Good luck with it all and I wish you well for the move.

*Hugs*

Northcote/Thornbury and Fairfield are about the same conditions as Brunswick, but usually a bit cheaper rent wise.

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
