Consadulations !!!

18 Oct

It’s official – the Australian visa has come through !!! No idea what this means practically, but right now I know it means I’m going, and there is nothing stopping me from going other than flights, work contract and just getting everything organised.

Not quite sunk in yet – going to try and help this chunk of news nestle in tonight over a nice meal with Mimi, and I dare say a glass or two of something nice ! I’m really pleased to have a DECISION at last – finally my life can move on at the pace I dictate, and not sitting on hold.

A mixed feeling as always to leaving – so much excitement mingled with a little sadness to leave to much behind. And everyone has been wonderful with the texts and e-mails today, but again, a trace of sadness behind the overall messages of congratulations. Wouldn’t have it any other way of course, but won’t let the sadder aspects of this bitter-sweet decision cloud over tonight, as I go out to celebrate being in command (if not control !) of my future, of OUR future, and soon to move onto planning weddings, not house moves !

    Consadulations indeed! Good word, honey.

    And a word to all our UK peeps: get your Skype on!! We will try and have a more active communication flow while we’re Down Under but it takes two (and a good internet connection) to tango, so do set up a Skype account and add us as contacts!
