Happy New Year!
Thank you to everyone for making 2015 a successful blogging year. I apologise for my absence over the last few weeks. As most of you know, I was in the process of selling my home in Brisbane and moving to Melbourne. I am happy to report that my house has now sold and I have officially moved to Melbourne. Miss Gidget and I are settling into our new apartment and we are starting to explore this wonderful city.
A quick update on how the move happened. My mum and I drove back to Brisbane with Gidget on New Years Eve. Thirteen hours in the car… Again… And then we spent the next three days packing up my house, along with the help of my best friend. On Monday, January 4th, the removalists arrived at 7:30am and packed up all my furniture and about a zillion boxes, filling around half of a shipping container and then they took it away to the train. Meanwhile, Mum and I cleaned, took rubbish to the tip, took a lot of things to charity and generally ran around like crazy. Mum flew home that night, another tearful goodbye, and MissG and I went to stay with my bestie, Moana, for the night.
My mum was an absolute champion and an inspiration. I don’t know how she just keeps going. She works so hard and I am forever grateful to her for being there for me. xox
The next morning, the three of us drove to Melbourne – 1,800km over 2 days, and about 22 driving hours. What do you think Moana? Did we listen to TayTay’s 1989 5 or 6 times? The first day, we seemed to be travelling within a constant storm, it rained very heavily a lot of the way. MissG was much better on the trip to Melbourne and I think it’s because I propped her up on her favourite cushion up high on the folded-down back seats, right between our seats.
We arrived in Melbourne on Wednesday night and the removalists arrived at 8:30 the next morning to fill my new little apartment with a whole bunch of stuff. Moana stayed with us til Friday night and unpacked like a pro, sorting my kitchen and organising my boxes, travelling to multiple IKEAS with me… I am so thankful to her for doing the trip with me and helping me get settled in my new place. Miss you babe x.
I may not post very often for the next week or two. I have no internet at home yet, a few problems with the communication company, and I’m relying on my very expensive mobile data plans, so I am not posting much, apart from a few photos on Instagram.
I’m looking forward to getting back to the blogosphere, I’ve missed you guys! And I’m looking forward to some exciting new things in 2016. Is there anything you’re looking forward to?
I’ll be back soon.
