Well, the time has indeed come. The impatient planner in me can now set to work planning for next year. On Saturday, David and I found out that we will be moving to.......
David has been awarded a PHD scholarship for three years to study with the University of Sydney, and I'm packing my bags and going right along with him.
I can't tell you what a relief it is to know exactly where we will be going! We booked all our flights last night, and so now its very much real! We leave for Sydney on the 13th Feb, 2010.
Moving to a whole new country is a little mind boggling and I feel an urgent need to write everything down in a list! I'm a very big list person - I tend to find old lists in my bags and pockets all the time. Its comforting having a list.
I won't say that I wasn't a little dissapointed that we didn't end up going to Melbourne, but its only a hop skip and a jump away, and at this stage, we know four people in Sydney, which is four more than we knew in Melbourne.
I guess what I was really looking forward to if we ended up in Melbourne was meeting some of the Melbourne bloggers. I've tried finding some in Sydney and have only found a handful. So, um, if you're in Sydney and would like to catch up/show me around, please feel free to get in touch. It will be nice to see a few friendly faces - I'm a little nervous about not having any friends in a huge city like Sydney.
So, off to Sydney it is! The date is really not all that far away...
