We booked our flights last night, so now it’s set, it’s becoming real. We are leaving and I have the print out to prove it. We are leaving on the 8:th of may, only 8 weeks away. We will be going first to Hong Kong for 4 days, then Thailand for little over a week, then to Sydney, and then up to visit A:s family for a week. Then finally back to Sydney to get started, setting up a new home and life I guess.
It’s becoming very real now, and I’m exited and scared at the same time. Exited because we have been talking about moving for years, and scared because there are so many unanswered questions, will I find a job, will I make new friends, will all my shoes disappear after a visit from the shoe stealing woman?
Most importantly the thing that I’m scared about is, what if I don’t like it. What if I don’t want to be there, then I’ve lost my goto place. Australia has been my goto place for years, when I’ve not liked it in London, the weather has been bad, work boring or something other sad thing happening. Then I would think, well the it’s sunnier in Australia, so that would be good, kind off. But what if I go there and my expectations are not met. Then I will have lost my goto dream place.
But then again, I could be above my expectations, I will never know I guess unless I do go, so I’m going. Now I just need to decide what books are good enough to bring with me, and what ones that have to be donated. I reckon Jemima J is on the first lists…always a sucker for great literature me J
