Over and out...

So I'm here in Melbourne airport waiting for my flight out and I can't believe I'm actually here and I'm actually leaving.

Surprisingly, I was not upset when I left my flat I'd lived in for over 5 years, nor when I actually left Manly - and with the exception of one friend who briefly caught me out - I ensured I had emotional buffer everywhere I went so I never even teared up.

But you know - the cab ride here has unsettled me. And the waiting hasn't helped much either. So finally it seems I'm a little sad (and I must say, I'm a little relieved to feel something - I was beginning to think I was made of stone...)

But even saying that I still think I'm doing the right thing. I need time out - (I'm kind of thinking of it as a pause.....) So now I'm beginning the long trek home - the long trek that involves stops throughout the route to see friends, family and friends again. (Kind of cushioning the blow....)

Although I have been busy the last few weeks with things I should have, could have and normally would have blogged about - I simply didn't get time - and now its really just time to look forward. So in anticipation that in six months time I will not want to do an international move again (I did mention how hellish it was, didn't I?) I will simply sign off here.

Wishing you all the best - and thanking you for reading.
