Why I moved house..... cos it's too bloody hot up there in Queensland. I love the colder weather of Tassie and feel a lot more comfortable here, without the need for air-con. If we were still up there the air-con would be running 24/7 and costing us a fortune, so this was/is a great move.
I've been asked several times what I'm going to do when temps plummet to zero and below. That's easy, I just put on a sweater and some long pants, not that I feel the cold as much as most. Most of the year down here I wear just shorts and a tee shirt - sometimes no shirt at all.
What's more, I don't suffer with the vertigo as much down here in Tassie. Up there in Queensland I woke every day with it and had issues with balance and mobility, whereas down here it is far less severe, and some days I don't get it at all. I still have issues with arthritis and associated pain, but I now have some decent meds and can manage it a lot better than I could before.
Yup, it has been a great move for us all, but especially for me. I even sleep better at night now I'm here and feeling much happier with my lot.
The house is smaller than what we're accustomed to, but we have adapted and rearranged things to suit. There's a 2 car garage out back that I'm adapting to become our new study area and computer room, so that will help to compensate for the smaller spaces inside.
Anyhow, 'tis cuppa tea time and I'm outta here.
