Well...the day of our emigration is rolling round fast. This weekend has been one of the most exhausting of my life - we moved out of our flat and back in with my parents for the last 3 weeks and have had two leaving meals - both of which I found hugely upsetting.
I am sitting here right now wondering whether we have just taken the most amazing, liberating and exciting decision ever or whether we are utterly mental. I never quite expected to feel so emotionally wrung out by all this - handing the keys on our flat back knocked me for six and if it wasn't for my husband being an absolute rock I think I would have lost my mind.
This forum keeps me grounded with reading about peoples experiences - for better and worse and I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who posts, responds, keeps up the banter and generally makes it feel like a nice place to run to for reassurance.
We fly out in just over 3 weeks time, flying into Melbourne for a friend's wedding then driving the GOR down to Adelaide. Neither of us has a job lined up yet but I am confident we will find something to pay the rent. This last 3 weeks at work is going to be tricky with trying to remain 'engaged' when my mind is absolutely elsewhere. I will no doubt be visiting PIA continuously....
Anyway, off to indulge in one of my Mom's sunday dinners, one of the better elements to living (temporarily) back under the parents roof! Happy Sunday all.
