The lead up to the big move was surreal. Life was so busy I couldn’t get my head around it until a few days beforehand when we were packing boxes ready for storage. I’d been working up until the week before Christmas and we left the day after New Year. With so many rushed goodbyes and last minute arrangements for renting out the house and the flat it wasn’t until we were actually waiting in the departure lounge of Tullamarine Airport that it finally dawned on me that this was it; the moment of truth. We really were heading overseas.
