The view from my neighbour's yard
Well, today I lose my 'Instant New Best Friend Neighbour'...... as she (and her little family) is moving back to Perth. Like. Today. :(
No more hanging over the front porch in our jammies at 5am (we're both early risers!) discussing what pretty teacup we're drinking out of that morning. No more champagnes on a Friday afternoon..."is it too early to drink"? 7 months of a delightful friendship leaves in a removal truck in about 6 hours time.
My 12 year old is not coping either as my 'instant new best friend neighbour' has a 12 year old son, who also became a 12 year old 'instant new best friend'. We had tears, the night before last. "But it's a one in a million friendship Mum. He's my best friend and I will never see him again". I hightailed it down to Officeworks yesterday and purchased them each a set of skype headphones. Hubby set up the skype accounts before the packers packed away my neighbours computer (they had professional packers, as she "doesn't do packing" - don't you love it, she's such a lady!....see, I could have learnt so much more from her)... so the boys will still be able to discuss 'nerf guns', 'tech decks' and girlfriends!
But Perth! It's so far away! No jumping on a $99 one hour flight to catch up. No. This is rather permanent.
So bye-bye sweet 'D'. I'm going to miss you heaps. I hope you really do use your new Google ID ('instant new best friend').
I'm gonna need to hear from you every day.
