The short of the story is that a couple of months ago my husband, a self employed tradesman, had to travel away for work, unfortunately the building industry in Brissy isn't exactly booming at the moment so after much deliberation hubby headed south (back to his roots) in an effort to keep our family a float. Turns out that he just happen to fall back in love with the south and luckily has also fallen back into some regular work as well. After struggling to live apart for 6 weeks, him in a motel room on his own and me at home, on my own, with the 6 cherished ones, we decided enough was enough and we would move heavens and earth to be together again as a family, like we should be. So... Just Like That, We're packing up and Moving Out!
What adventures await us, I do not know but I am excited, curious and happy with the decision we have made even though it has completely turned my world upside down.
I will miss everything here, EVERYTHING!!
It's our Home, every step I take I see something around me that we created, or planted, so many beautiful memories surround me. We have achieved so much on our property in the last seven years. We have extended our house to cater for our ever growing family, we added a chook coop, a tennis court, a veggie garden, an orchid and how can we go past The Kitchen! Aghh!! My Dream Kitchen!!! : (
It's been a real whirlwind around here, I've spent the week saying goodbye to friends and family, I've broken the news to the children and their friends, there has been lots of laughter and lots of tears, and many more memories created...I have been looking into new schools, house rentals (here and down there) selling sheep, giving away chooks, pulling down my banging wall and generally decluttering and packing up my whole house...
I'm glad I have my Gooseberry Jam. It'll be nice to walk back down memory lane anytime I like. I am also glad that I do not have to say goodbye to any of you, nothing changes for us, you can come with me, see where I end up and what I get up to next.
So I'll leave you for a little while now, I've got Sooo much packing to do and so little time. My lovely friends and family have rallied together to help so I better get back to it. Wish me luck . . .
I'll see you on the other side : )
