More Wildlife

This is the very regal male King Parrot, he is easily identified as a male because the female has a dull green head. These birds are reasonably shy but with patience can be hand fed.
We have had a pair of King Parrot's visiting us and they seem to have had either 1 or 2 chicks each year. The chicks have been all females for the last 2 years.
This photo was taken by Morris, who is the man who mows our lawn and has become one of our friends.

We have found it and our offer has been accepted. We are purchasing in an area totally different from the last place we tried. I will tell everyone our new address and phone numbers etc. via email after we have had the building and pest inspections done and everything is past the point of no return.

The house is a 4 bedroom + study, ensuite, formal lounge, seperate dining, family room, home theatre, and a large office for Grant with a seperate entry into it. There is a very large fully screened verandah that looks out over the pool and hot tub. It is on a huge block of land. I will place photos on the blog in two weeks time when the inspections have been carried out.

The house has been painted appalling colours and that is going to be changed as quick as I can so when the photos are posted just remember that they are not our style.

It is a brick and tile house with a drive through driveway. There is a single carport and room for the boat. Security is installed and it is air conditioned.

We will be open to guests always as we love having visitors so all our friends and family are welcome.

We have sold our house and we will be moving the weekend of the 7th July. In Queensland the usuall settlement date is 28 days after exchange of contracts, but with it being 9 weeks away we have plenty of time to find a house and plan the move. Now that the house is sold we can take advantage of the current housing market and hopefully get a good buy. I have been doing alot of research on the net. and there a plenty of houses out there.One of my primary requirements in our new home is that it must be a level block of land, and with Grant working from home we need office space and broadband access.All progress will be included here for anyone to see.
