South For The Summer

I mentioned earlier how things get a lot cheaper if you're willing to live 50 miles out from the city.  Well, that goes double if you're willing to live 100 miles out.

Last Saturday I went at looked at a three-bedroom townhouse in Hornsby, the suburb where I live right now.  It was a little larger than my present shoebox, but still small, and while it was probably reasonably nice when it was new, it really needed new paint and carpet and to be aired out for about six months.

Now, if I were to move south to Bomaderry, for $10 per week less than that slightly grubby little three-bedroom townhouse, $30 per week more than I've been paying, I could get, well, this:

I don't know what to say.  That's astounding.  The local telephone exchange even has ADSL2, though only from one provider.

Okay, it's two miles from the station.  Okay, so train services are infrequent at best.  Who cares.  It has four bedrooms, four living rooms, an attached two car garage, and a detached three car garage.  And it fits my budget.

Sorry if I'm a bit incoherent, my brain has just been perma-boggled.

1 Holy moly!  That's nice!  I can understand your reluctance to live 2 miles from the station, but dang!  I'd take it in a heartbeat.  wink

2 The five car garage is a hint as to why things are cheaper.

Motor scooter perhaps ?

6 You only work eight days a week? You've been slacking off.

7 Be sure to read the fine print.  There's probably a rider clause about monthly plagues of deadly locusts or something.

8 The rider clause is that it's a three-hour commute.

9 Though locusts wouldn't surprise me either...
