This is my first post from Australia!
Through my last post, I set goals for my first participation in #AcWriMo. I guess I wanted to be intentional with scheduling writing time – to somehow have ‘control’ over something – since I knew that November would be busy with moving preparations …and would involve some goodbye tears. My ‘plan’ worked for the first 2 weeks…but I lacked consistency during the last 2 weeks. I met [most of] my #AcWriMo goals, but have yet to get into a daily writing habit (that will be a goal for the new year).
Halfway through November we were officially granted Australian work visas!
Frank travelled ahead of me to start working …and to find a place for us to live 🙂
I just arrived last week.
As with any new beginning, there is an ending…
and so ended my life-long run as a resident of Canada
(but forever remaining a proud Canadian).
This is my first time in Australia and
it is hard to comprehend that this isn’t just a brief
did-we-win-the-lottery? I-can’t believe-we-are-
I am feeling quite overwhelmed – but in a good way – with all the new sights and sounds. I am thankful [VERY] for this fantastic opportunity to live here [Thank you Ritchie Bros!] and need to remind myself that we have been given 3+ years to enjoy this beautiful place…though I am eager to experience all the touristy things [RIGHT.NOW]. I have yet to see a kangaroo or a koala, but below are a few of the new experiences I captured this week. As I settle in here and process this big move, I plan on posting more – so please visit again soon 🙂
Wishing you and your family great memory-making times
during this Christmas season and all the best
as you enter the new beginning of 2014!
