After having lived several weeks in denial about something as unreal as moving to Australia in the near future, I have finally realised I'd better get moving FAST. I'm in awe of the fact that I have mysteriously acquired the right to work and live there. Besides the fact that time is really short, from Christmas day and just beyond New Year it is going to be a frenzy of travelling all over locally with lots of family goodbyes. That means the bulk of our stuff must be sorted out before Christmas ... in just over 2 weeks! I suppose one just has to plug away at it diligently and then finally it will start taking shape. I've decided to buy some big boxes today and label them 'container', 'airfreight' and 'luggage' and then start dumping stuff in the appropriate box. I'm also constantly putting aside stuff to give away. It is always such a relief when you hand over another load of stuff to someone. We've also got lots of other loose ends to follow up and everyone is slowly but surely sliding into silly season mode. My motto is 'make every day matter'. Let me go do just that!
