Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps.

I thought I had this year all figured out. In fact, I had nearly everything laid out in perfect order - right down to the potential tours we wanted to go on, the budgets we would need to stick to in order to get everything done, and the potential dates for moving back to Australia and getting ready for the yet-to-be-organised wedding.

I even had things written on a calendar. And in my diary. And let me just say, I don't put just ANY old thing in my diary. What goes in that diary, tends to stay there. I hate scribbling things out and making a mess. Hate.

Jase and I have always had our own little pet project when it comes to looking but not touching. For me, that's been wedding planning: in secret for a few years, and then more openly once the engagement came about. For Jase, it was property. He loves keeping an eye on the latest markets, and watching the trends and prices of suburbs back home in Sydney, where we'll eventually end up. The problem with looking but not touching is just that - you're seeing all of these amazing and promising ventures, but you know you're just not in the position to do anything about them just yet.

They say everything happens in its own time; for us, that time appears to be now - about a year earlier than predicted. We discovered a vacant block of land available in a suburb that we have always been interested in. (Long back story: choosing a potential area to live in is so much harder than it looks. Really.) It's completely empty, it's in a lovely street and it's been on the market for a little while now, which leaves us the potential to haggle with pricing. And it's fabulous. Just fabulous.

So, we're following it through and will see where it takes us. It might not work out. We might be pipped to the post, or the asking price may not get to where we want it to be. There might be problems, or random circumstances that stop this little venture before it even starts. But on the other hand, it might just be the one. And if that happens, the rest of this year and all of my carefully thrown dates and plans will be thrown to the wind, and we'll have a whole lot of other things to think about.

Cross your fingers for us - it's going to be a long and possibly drawn out couple of weeks. I just think I'm going to need a bigger diary!
