Wow what a ride the last 12 months have been , if you had told me what the year held for me at the beginning , I would have said no way , your out of your mind. And I would have hid behind the couch…trust me.. lol We started the year , having finally got rid of what was holding us back , with the visa for hubby to come to Australia ,and planning our wedding which was 12 days away , and our tickets .
Then came the fun and games of getting everything done, working out where exactly we were going to, then getting all our stuff sorted . Some to be sold, some to be sent on ahead ,some to be given away . A lot of work but finally done and dusted ,then a few days at a motel seeing my brother who I had not seen for years. He had come over to the UK for a holiday so we were able to catch up ,was such a great time , loved seeing him and his lovely wife again . It had been far too long since we had met up .
Then it was time to leave , up , up and away , back home for me and to a new life for hubby who had never been here before. Stayed with my sister and her hubby in Tasmania for a while , then hubby landed his dream job and off we went again. I had hoped we could be based in Victoria as this was where I was born , but alas the dream job was in Sydney ,so here we are living in Sydney . We have a lovely unit, are only about 10 – 15 mins walk from a very large Westfield’s shopping centre ,and 5 mins walk from a train station, so we are in a good position. As we have had so many problems , not of our own doing , we are still way behind ,so still have little or no furniture , but we will get there. First thing is to pay back those who helped us out ,then we will get what we need 1 thing at a time . Main thing to me is that hubby loves his job , that’s always a big bonus .
We now wait to see with baited breath what this year will bring , hopefully a lot less stress than last year . This time hopefully we will come across people who will actually be nice and help us , not like as in the other blog .. Not Fit For Purpose…
As for us we will do as we have always done since we got together , love and look after each other to the best of our ability , try to be nice to others , and help if need be , tho I am wary of this as last time I did it cost us big money , which we are now having to slowly replace.
Also this year we have our 1st wedding anniversary ( can’t believe it is a year already ) and our birthdays , also the anniversary of getting to Australia , a special day to us both . Special as it took so long, and had so many obstructions , but we did it anyway . Also I might mention here too that had it not been for Twitter and Facebook , I might have gone right round the twist with all the grief . As it was some of my lovely Twitter friends helped me keep going and keep my feet on the ground, love you trouble .. lol ..you know who you are.
So now we face this new year with a fresh start , a new job, a new home , and fresh hope in our hearts , and I really believe if it had not been for God helping us, we would never have got this far . So hoping that all who read this have a very happy and safe new year , and that all your dreams come true……
