Oh, yes, I am still sad at the thought of leaving this place one day in the not too distant future, but I am trying to think of all the positives about moving. Firstly - and most importantly - is the fact that we will be nearer to our daughter, son-in-law and two grandsons. That must be a big plus. To be able to see them without a four days' journey will be wonderful! Also, the weather: This last winter in Victoria was such a cold one and seemed so long, that to experience a warmer climate will be great. And, last, but not least, it is true that in one's life one has to do different things when one has the chance. And to move to a different state is a positive thing to do and an exciting thing to do...and, as a friend once said to me many years ago, "You can't be married to your house". So true. So, I will start searching in earnest on the Internet for the perfect house in Queensland...one that we can afford.
