I should be on commission!
Had Amanda over for morning tea the other day. Pulled out all stops, got in the car and drove to Bulimba Bakery to buy our favourite passionfruit cupcakes (totally melt in your mouth, one cake per bite heaven). Got some carrot cake as well for hubby. He got in touch with his feminine side and sipped tea with us until his morning appointment arrived.
Found a rental... mission brown... it's not forever.... character building. I promise I will share every 'brown' bit of it with you. Is it possible to be packing 'only on the inside'? I'm packing... but just stuff that you don't notice... like the insides of cupboards. We have a bit of time before we move and when the time comes, I want it to be swift. Like 'The House' one day and then gone the next. If I pack everything up now and boxes are everywhere... well that's just depressing. I find myself lingering in rooms now and 'swanning'...playing music... sipping wine in solitude .....and don't tell hubby..... but when he takes the boys out somewhere, I cry. I mourn for my lovely house and then quickly get over it. I want to look really strong and stoic for him!... and you guys. Anyway, I am detaching... slowly. I think the key is to look forward... a change in circumstance is a wonderful opportunity for change...it's exciting... the unknown... life has to be exciting, doesn't it. The key is to be 'scheming' all the time.. right?
Never a dull moment here at 'The House'.....roller coaster of emotions this week...... sniff... thank you for all your lovely comments and emails... they make me cry... but hey everything is making me cry at present... snnnifffff.
