Well, we’ve done it! We have bought a house in the northern state of Queensland. And, in 41 days (but who’s counting?) we’ll be moving out of the house (in Victoria) in which we’ve lived for 30 years. It’s a big move to make, but if you never do things that are considered “big”, then what’s the point of hanging around?
We have loved living where we are and will miss the people, the beautiful scenery, the garden that we created, “our” forest and everything familiar. But a change is often necessary to get the most out of life and that’s what we are doing. It’s an exciting time, while also being a time of hard work and stress.
But, I will continue to write as an antidote (or an accompaniment!) to all that will be happening.
Meanwhile, I also await the verdict from the manuscript assessor. Will she tell me that my memoir is rubbish? Or will there be so many corrections and improvements needed that the task will overwhelm me? We shall see.
I choose to comment on social issues and write creatively on a variety of subjects - for a variety of audiences.
