Well, we have been here for 2 and a half weeks.
It's been busy.
It's been different.
It was exciting for a while.
Now...it's back to reality.
The kids are officially on holidays (as of 1.5hrs ago), Yogi has started full-time work.
The spending spree (much fun while it lasted) is over.
The IKEA wardrobes are 2/3 installed.
The aircon unit is in.
The couch has arrived and been unpacked.
So why do I feel suddenly flat?
It's a hard time of year to move. We have no Xmas breakups to go to, no friends to invite round for Xmas drinks.....and everyone here is too busy with their Xmas functions to have time or inclination to make new friends.
Our neighbours have been very friendly, don't get me wrong...but now that life has slowed down a bit, I am missing my friends. Thankfully I have Mum around the corner (and she finishes up at work for 5 weeks this arvo)...and Judy is coming over for Xmas on the 22nd.....
I will get out of these doldrums, and on the whole, I am still glad we moved...there is so much possiblity for us here.
BUT, my friends..... I LOVE YOU and I MISS YOU
and I WISH YOU ALL A VERY MERRY XMAS.
