Our lives all go in cycles, or for the literary minded, chapters.
Each chapter covers a section of our lives that we live and experience before we progress to the next chapter.
With the knowledge of the previous chapters under our belt, we seek to improve, grow and adapt to our ever changing lives.
A new chapter has just started in my life, and it’s one that I hope will see my life growing and blooming in lots of ways.
Around 20 months ago I met someone so special, that I wanted my next chapter to include her. It felt right, it felt comfortable and most importantly, it felt good.
That time was February 2007 and that special someone was of course LaLa.
These 20 months have gone fast. Although we lived 300kms apart for that time, we managed to see each other every 2 – 4 weeks and we’d have a great time. Although doing the long distance thing can be very trying at time, we managed it pretty well and kept the communication up. We even managed a few trips away here and there which definitely helped.
You may have noticed the past tense term in that paragraph.
That’s right people. Long Distance NO MORE. Last weekend, Canberra gained a new resident!
No more commuting up and down the Hume.
No more chatting on the phone before bed.
No more having no-one to spend time with at night.
No more moving from place to place and being undersettled.
For around 3 1/2 yrs I have been a wanderer. Including my time in Washington, I have lived in around 12 to 13 places.
We have found a great little 3 beddy in Ainslie. I have now moved most of my stuff in. Moving house SUCKS ARSE by the way. I am sick of loading my car from all of the different places I had my stuff! I have nearly got it all, but it’s taking a while.
So, the new chapter begins, and here’s hoping that it’s a nice long one 🙂
