Right time indeed to get this show on the road …
What show you ask ? The finally leave London show and go home to Australia show , that’s the 1 ,after a lot of trouble , hold ups and downright interference it is on !! Only 3 years late , but better late than never !! right ??
We finally leave here on the 27th of August at 12 midday , this has been a very long time coming for us for reasons for this read back , some of my other blogs cover it . We are both so excited I cannot tell you , me because finally I am going home ,my Oh because he has never been there before and is so looking forward to it . Now all we got to do is sell everything we have to pay for it all lol… but that’s better than trying to pack it or send it on .
My time here in the UK has been challenging to say the least , but having said that it has also been amazing .There are so many lovely places to see here ,also heritage buildings , and museums ,and the London Eye amazing. The centre of London is something else too, it has a spark all of it’s own.
There are some people I will surely miss , 1 of them I nick named ” Trouble ” lol you know who you are ,this lady has been a lovely friend who I first met on Twitter . Also have met some other lovely ladies 2 of whom came to our wedding . Then there is the Twitter Formation Drinking Team , lol, that has a mad penguin, a cheeky clown, a meerkat , a cheeky chinese lawyer , and countless others ,we have had some great times with these a lot of fun .These piss ups as we call them will be missed , but going home is the plan and we will be sticking to it.
In my time here have seen a lot of things happen 1 of which has really saddened me , this being the way the country seems now to be a place that is run by the rich for the rich. Not lucky enough to be rich ? then your in big trouble ,even more so if you are old or disabled . Just in the last few months we have seen people who cannot defend themselves have what little they do have taken off them , or reduced to almost nothing . While this is going on , if you are here you can guess, the rich are getting what’s being taken off the poor. Getting it in tax breaks above and beyond, also bonuses that are just unreal , and any other thing the Eaton Old Boys Club , as it’s now being called and not the Government can think of to help the rich.Sucking up to the EU is helping nicely in this. Oh has started saying in the last few months “This is not my country any more ” I agree it has changed so much and not for the good.
Not saying for 1 minute that Australia is not doing a similar thing, it most likely is, but not having been there for 5 years I do not know for sure , but would not be surprised .Seems all countries are going down the same path .
Getting back to the main show , lol, trying to sort things out ,what to sell ,what to ship , what to take with us , eeeep!! what a job !! , lol, just as well we work well together , well we do when I kick him up the butt to get him moving .Going to try and see as many of our twitter friends as possible that live here before we go ,also going to try and go to a few places to see people as well, this will only happen if we can sell all our stuff .Money is going to be very tight indeed if we can’t sell our stuff .
So now that we have the visa for Oh ,the tickets , it is onward and upward , to a fresh start back in Australia , will be great to see my family again , have missed them so much I cannot say . Also being back in a country that knows how to do hot weather !!! lol .. sorry babe , but I have missed my heat !!!
So anyone want to buy a car or 2 ? lol UK of course ..or some furniture,clothes,books,DVD’s, household goods ?? if so please help !!
Anyway further updates will be forthcoming as we have them , pray for us, wish us luck , what ever , lol, just be there for us as we venture out ….
When God asks what you’ve done with your life, don’t say “Didn’t you read my tweets?”
