Yummy! Breakfast out!

Today, with two weeks until I move, I went to take my Trudy Cook stamp art, a big cross, to the picture framer.  It fell off a disposable hook in the house I hate and chipped the frame. Just one more reason to dislike it.  

I've spent the last few years moving. Quigley and I moved to Glen Waverley and because I couldn't stand that kid, I moved to Ormond. There I had rats as big as dogs. So I move again; this time with my brain in lock down - I was almost a labotomy case.  But I'm finished moving. Done. They'll be carrying me out of there in a box!

The Ormond Provedore... Yummy!
I'll miss how many yummy places I've found to eat....

Ouch. This house is horrible...

Try as I may, I just can't seem to love this house.  I don't even like it.  The bathroom has the weird divide down it to cut the shower into another room.  Trouble is, the person doing the cutting was obviously as thin as a rail... and I'm not.  It's strictly breath in time when showering! And that isn't even going through the kitchen which is as old as time.

The only thing it has going for it is floorboards; and that isn't much considering they're so old they need the vacuum every day!   If I steam them, I squeak when I walk.

And it's cold, no matter how hot is outside.

You may ask why I'm at this place...  Well, my son and daughter picked it. We just needed to move out of the rat infestation of Ormond and I was knee deep in my brain so I just let them pick it.  Sigh!

21 days and counting...

Back home again....

Sigh.  I am back home in Melbourne again.  I can't help it.  These days I feel a sense of peace to be in St Leonards.  It's beautiful, but a different kind of beauty to Melbourne.  There are no skyscrapers, just a sprawling bit of the country that does not even have footpaths!  And to me, it feels like home.

My brother and sister in law moved there today; my mother already lives there.  As for me, I won't be far from there.  But I have the best of both worlds.  I have footpaths lol, and I can walk to the city of Geelong.  I'll walk the dog or ride my bike there, or maybe when I get better at it.  I fell of it today and took out both my knees and my finger is bloody painful...

It's only 23 days until I move.  I'm figuring I'll have to cull some stuff from here because there is no way known that all the stuff in the garage, is going to fit on any God damned truck!!  And that doesn't stop to think about what is in the house!

Friday night...

This morning I left Melbourne and came to Geelong; I do that every chance I get now. I'm staying at my Mum's; just until I get my own house!

That would be about 25 days now...

So I come down here partly to keep Mum company, and partly to bring things down that I'll need before the removalists truck gets here. 3 baskets of cleaning stuff have made it lol. Brain damage hasn't robbed me of that at least!

In 25 days I'm going to get back to cooking too... I'm already planning the things I'm going to cook!

Oh well... Next!

I'm trying to find a job that I will enjoy; that I will feel like I'm contributing.  Hell, even washing up dishes you're contributing to something!  A clean kitchen!

I'm not rushing, just meandering.  I don't know what else I'd do.  I've been a project manager for so long now that I'm not sure how to be anything else.  And being that, isn't working.  My brain, stupid thing, can only do one thing at a time these days.  Before my "brain surgery"; oh, I could do ten things...

Hell; even thinking about it makes me exhausted.  I think I'll just get moved and then Christmas out of the way first.  But I'll have to find a job soon; either that or I'll go mad...

Coffee! Nectar of the Gods!

Well work may not want me for a while but it's giving me a chance to sun bake (with block out) and sample the coffee in Oakleigh. I haven't got long to do this; 27 days and I'm out of here!

Goodbye to the crap relationships! Goodbye to the coffee!  And hello to the push bike and dog!  I bought a bike on the weekend.  Dog is coming as soon as I get there.  And I can't wait.  I'll miss Oakleigh though... And their magnificent coffee!!

It's Beautiful...

I'm down the coast sitting in a small cafe. It's isolated, in that there isn't anything for miles around; yet it's full. I figure the coffee is good!

I can't help thinking that I've done the right thing in moving here.  Slower paced lifestyle.  

The only sad part of this move is that I ended it with Quigley.  I got tired of always coming last... On the bottom of the totem pole.  If you love someone, really love them; you want... No need to be with you.

He didn't.

Moving House !!!

Well you take a few months off, and look what happens.

I bought a house.

Its not a really fancy house, just a three bedroom on a block of land... but here the thing; it's in Geelong.

I'm going home.  Back where I belong you might say.  Where there are no trams; no millions of people.  No loneliness with everyone consumed with their own life.  

I've loved living in Melbourne, but that was the old me.  The me that could work all the time and when not at work, skylark with my friends.

The me that could think....  That didn't struggle to find the words.

I think I can be happy here!!!  With a bike; and a dog.  A garden....

I've bought the bike.  The garden is finished with the house and the dog will come!
