Some of you may have noticed that I have been somewhat absent from the land of blogging of late. It breaks my heart a little bit, because it’s always my favourite thing to do – writing posts with photos that I’ve painstakingly captured and edited, reading posts from my wonderful blogging friends and mostly reading and responding to the comments that inspire me to do more of the same.
I have been away a little bit, just mainly relying on posts that I had in drafts and just tweaked slightly to post. The reason for this is that I am in the process of moving from my beautiful city of Brisbane, to the magical city of Melbourne. This involves decluttering, packing up, sanding, painting, cleaning – all those things that are required when you sell your home. I’ve lived here for 15 years and the last 9 have been in this same house, my first home that I have owned.
It’s sad to be leaving. My family is also moving, they are moving back home to where we grew up. So they are moving 1,000km north to very warm, humid weather. And I am moving 2,000km south to moodier and cooler weather. So I will be 3,000km away from my dear family, where now I am just 10km away – eek! It’s ok, we’ve talked about it a lot, and we’re all excited to be going off on our new adventures, and we will be but a short plane ride away.
Melbourne is a beautiful city, as you probably know from some of my fellow Aussie’s posts. I am so excited to start photographing that beautiful city, although a part of me will miss my Changing Seasons shoots here in Brisbane.
So, a few changes happening here on Musings of a Frequent Flying Scientist:
- I missed posting for the August “3 of the Best“, which is feature I write with PerelinColors, who has kindly agreed that we will switch to posting this feature every second month. So you can expect a new and exciting post for “3 of the Best” in September.
- I will sadly not be able to do Image Reboot this month, but the lovely Lucile will share something for you that day instead.
- I have missed my beloved Dark Side Thursday – I have even missed reading Andy’s new chapters as I haven’t had time to devote to reading either. But I will be back soon. We have to get that girl out of the dungeon!
- That leaves us with PhotoRehab Cover Makeover – this will continue, simply because dear Lucile continues to write the wrap up posts each work – this is a lot of work and I am very grateful to her for doing it. I simply make the new cover, which is fun and doesn’t take up too much time, plus I can usually do it on the go with fun apps. The downside for us, we miss out on Lucile’s creations, but they are coming soon – I promise!!!
I do apologise for this momentary break in transmission, but I do promise to be back and I will try not to overload you with photos of Melbourne too often. I will miss my lovely back garden, where all of my little creepy crawlies are always waiting for their photo shoot, so I will have to find a new spot for those in Melbourne.
I haven’t really addressed why I am moving. It’s partly for work and partly for me. Most of my business is there, so my travel should decrease somewhat. But also, I’m craving a change of pace. So, while I’m young(ish) and able, I thought, why not? I’ve always loved Melbourne and almost moved there 10 years ago, so I think – now is the time!
PS – yes, Miss Gidget is coming with me!
