    Finally bought my own place down here and I can now get away from my workmate and +1. I should be yay all elated and stuff but I'm actually nervous. I've settled on the 9th and should be in my own place by now but I'm still at my workmate's. It probably doesn't help I've lived there for close to 3 years it's like my second home.

    When I walk into my own place every arvo just before I head back to the other place, I get this 'look what have I done' feeling and when I start working on different things around the house, I just give up half an hour later leaving a whole heap of half baked jobs (sanded skirting boards, half cleaned balcony etc..)

    (it probably doesn't help with my workmate and +1 being overseas at the moment and thought I already moved out...lol)

    Am I weird?

    Get your stuff in there. I always feel like that for about 3-4 days and nights. It's awful.

    It'll never feel like home if you don't give it a chance.

    Congratulations. As Bran said, move in and set a date to have a housewarming party or the very least a PC get together.

    Yep, I've set myself a date (next Tuesday) I'll need to get everything out of the old place and into the new one. Maybe the lack of furniture in the lounge room isn't helping either.

    Move in. Once you get all your things in it will feel less new and empty. Tackle the rooms one at a time to get those jobs done, that way you don't feel as if you are living on a building site.

    It always takes some time for a new place to feel like "home", even up to a year.

    From the movie "The Castle" - Lawrence Hammill’s closing in the High Court
    Sure the Kerrigans built a house, then they built a home and family. You can acquire a house, but you can’t acquire a home. Because a home is not built of bricks and mortar, but love and memories. You can’t pay for it, and you’re only short-changing people if you try.

    Now that's going to be interesting....I'm making one of the IP to be PPOR at the end of this year, not gonna enjoy the same nervous breakdown twice in a year.

    Not gonna work, one of the housemates have already demanded the place to be fully decked out. It's something I intended to do but over a longer period time when I can be bothered.

    This really is a first world problem considering a lot of people in the world can't even have a place to call home while I'm cracking a whinge over effectively nothing.

    Spend time banging nails into the walls to hang your stuff early.

    When ex and I first married our dining table consisted of two directors chairs and a card table ... upgraded to a plastic outdoor table from BigW when his boss was coming to dinner
