Do not fret dear readers, it is not the end of the Highriser blog, just that enough is enough. For dire financial reasons, such as us living beyond our means, the highrise has been sold. We got an ok price. We are sick of going without to pay for this place. We are now seriously cashed up. Today is moving day and for once I can afford to buy a full tank of petrol.
We are moving to our one bedroom flat in East St Kilda and I will have to replace the view pic on my blog header for our view out the windows of our flat, a timber paling fence sitting on a concrete wall with some nice cream fifties flat bricks above the fence. 18 squares down to 5. Some culling of possessions will be required and perhaps the culling of a partner too. It is only one bedroom.
Looks like I will end my days in a squalid little flat.
Worse still, we seem to be able to only have dial up internet at our flat/new home. I am not sure how I will be able to blog as I am used to. Waiting for stuffs to load for ages. I am not sure I can cope. While I assured you readers that the blog will stay, it may become a brief text only blog.
I should try to be positive about how sad our situation has become. We will meet some new people at the flat block I suppose. Some nice and happy and friendly smiling Russian Jewish peoples.
Blogging will resume once phone is connected and that funny old box makes all those weird sounds and connects me to you all via a telephone line. So quaint. I would laugh if I wasn't crying.
