This is our home, its part of a rented apartment building from the round about the 1930s and hasnt had much work done to it since about the same time

We've lived here for 4 years. Its pretty spacious. Its cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

If you trawl the archives of 2007 & 2009 you'll see youve been in every room apart from 1 - the girls bedroom which doubles as the prop department. You've been in my bedroom, spied on me in the bath, lurked in the hallway and wandered into my kitchen.

Unfortunately we have been given 60 days to vacate for no other reason that the landlord wants to live here instead of us… so it goes.

Originally they thought they needed to give us only 30 days notice which would have made it xmas eve they wanted us out… nice.

In an astonishing bit of luck (summer is the worst time to look for housing in bondi) we've already found and been offered a new place. Its smaller, newer and cheaper and doesnt look like we - had the set designers for David Fincher decorate - as mr Wiseacre once said.

A home that has been occupied by the infamous Ned Kelly will always go for twice as much as a similar property.
