16 hours away. A town of 25,000. I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER. I am so excited I could burst. Everyone we have told has only ever commented that it is beautiful but cold (it can possibly snow in winter! Squee!). I have been craving a slower lifestyle forever. DrMr and I have been talking a lot over the past few years about what our values are and what we value and what is precious to us. Our family is. Absolutely. We want the best life that we can provide for them and for ourselves. We have actually been talking about and looking at Armidale FOR YEARS, and I saw a job there a few months ago and pushed him to apply. And voila. Big lifestyle change.
I am though a LITTLE STRESSED. There is A LOT to do in the next month. The Uni there is paying for the pack and move which is AWESOME, but I am trying and planning to go through every cupboard and corner to sort and evict unnecessary clutter from the house. I have the most bizarre collections of things in every corner, I would photograph them BUT I HAVE NO TIME. I have started with the kitchen and it is going ok. I have till 1 December, plenty o' time.... right? YES.
Georgie Love with me. All alone back to being a one-woman-one-dog (and now two kids and a mister) operation. I have neglected Georgie Love a little bit with everything that has gone on the past year and I am actually also SUPER EXCITED to take it back and nurture it a little and invest some time and energy. I have some ideas and plans.
I ALSO bought 46 AMAZING AMAZING (half of them are hand sewn, it's RIDICULOUS) vintage dresses recently and more to come on that later. They are all washed and aired and sitting on my dining table (one of four that I have, did you know I hoard tables and chairs?)
SO that is it. I imagine with the changes I AM going to blog again more frequently - to keep in touch, to keep in the loop, to process and note all the changes that are going on. Although I have been AWAY, I HAVE been dropping in on blogs daily (read blogs on my iphone in the too many middle of the night breastfeeds) and don't feel like I ahve been out of the loop at all. It's just that no one knows what has been going on with me.
