Well its official – we are moving.
It has been on the cards for a while now but as my DH puts it we were just ‘waiting for the ducks to line up in a row’. However health issue with one of my children has meant that the time is now – even though the ducks are out swimming in the world wide pond somewhere 🙂
Its not going to be easy, we know that. Financially we are likely to struggle for quite a while but we are moving to paradise, which has to help doesnt it?? Paradise for us is Bellingen on the mid north coast of NSW and it has been something of a spiritual home for us for a long time. Each visit there for holidays has felt more like home than where we are physically living now and importantly it meets all of our requirements for lifestyle plus ticking the health boxes too.
So the plan is we will finish the school year here and be up there to start the new school year in 2015.
The number of things we need to do before we get to that point are truly daunting and as I write this I am surrounded by boxes as I start to sort through the accumulation of stuff we have collected over the last 12 or so years. I am determined that this time we are not going to just throw it all in boxes and sort it out later – later is now!!! Though strangely later never arrived previously….
