We MAY have found the new Burwell Abode!!

Richard went and looked at places to live yesterday. After checking them out our #1 pick was still the top choice. It far exceeded what I expected in a place to live!! It has a dryer(YESSSS) and air conditioning(AHHHHH) and bug screens(so we won't be covered in red dots) and a box(yes that is a garage to the rest of you!). Its a three bedroom and three bathroom house, with a tavern style(basement) kitchen, a backyard(HALLEJULAH!!) and a park across the street. Its in a gated community with cobble stone streets!! AND...most important of all, its in our price range ;)
Richard met the owners of the place, they own the Bar(which in Italy is like a coffee house) around the corner and the husband used to play ice hockey for Milano Devils!! He played hockey in Milan with Yari Kuri after he'd come from Edmonton!! How cool is that!?! SO.....this means he speaks fairly good English which is a bonus in a landlord over there :) We've told the estate agent we'll take the place and hopefully it can all be wrapped up this week sometime. The shower needs to be fixed and the price needs to be agreed upon since the internet had a different price than the estate agent told Richard.
Keep your fingers crossed for us, this place sounds PERFECT!!!

Actually in this case a Bar is very much like a pub with a Tex Mex theme ... Yayyy!

About Me

My photo
Milan, Italy
I am 34 years old, married to my wonderful husband Richard and mother to a beautiful 8 year old daughter named Reese. We lived in the suburbs of Calgary until January 2010 where I worked as an ER Nurse. Then my husband was transferred to Vancouver for a 6 month temporary project. Our blog Tripping over the Sidewalk told all about our adventure living on the 30th floor of an apartment building in the middle of downtown Vancouver. Then we moved to Milan, Italy for 18 months, Ciao-Eh was the online forum for our Italian adventures. We moved to Abu Dhabi, in the United Arab Emirates in January 2012 and lived there for two and a half years. Sandscrapers, Souks and Sand is the blog of our adventures in the Middle East! We are now happy to be back on a little acreage just outside of Calgary where I'm sure more adventures await!!!!
