Today marks the beginning of my last week of living here in my own apartment and I have to say, I am so excited for what the future may bring! The last 8 weeks (since my previous post) have been super busy - my temporary contract got extended twice and the boxes of sorting and packing seemed to multiply while I was out each day!
I'm finally seeing a hole in the pile of crap I had managed to accumulate over the years and I've been having some good luck on eBay and Gumtree so my savings are bumped up a nice little bit too. This week, the plan is to throw all the last bits & pieces up onto a local sales Facebook group and then send anything left to a charity shop or to the refuse centre.
I have found a few more bits to add to my 'must take with me' box but it's still a really small pile so I'm pleased about that. I've also found some cheaper alternatives for taking my PC with me so hopefully that will come in under budget.
Moving is stressful enough but at least when you move across land, you can box everything & sort some out when you get there! I wouldn't change this for all the money in the world though - not only am I off on a great big new adventure in a new land, I'm going to have my sweetheart right along by my side as we tackle whatever life throws at us.
We've had some rough stuff to get through over the last few years with only Skype to connect us and we've managed that so I am super hopeful that side by side, we can finally find some good stuff to deal with! This will probably embarass him a bit but he has made such a change in my life, I can't imagine where I would be now without him.
I'm having a hard time being patient but the worst part is not knowing when the damn paperwork will be finished! It has been confirmed that a visa will be issued but until I have that piece of paper in my hand, I can't book a flight. I may be moving out next Monday but after that, I'm stuck at my Dad's to wait for the visa. On the bright side though, at least I get to spend a few days with my Dad before I disappear into the West!
I feel like a 5 year old waiting for Christmas and I just can't wait! /squeeeee lol
