Moving, moving , moving.

                                                          The 'little' pond out back.

I've been a little MIA. It's been a bit nuts around here recently. We have just found out that we are moving back to Sydney, and my little Georgi has had a bit of a cold the last couple weeks :(

Trying to just make sure a 4 months old is as comfortable as she can be, with a snotty nose and all, is very difficult. There is nothing worse than a screaming baby. I wish she could just blow her nose!!!!

Hubby works for a company that's sends him all around NSW, fixing things, roads, water treatment plant etc etc. In the last 3 years we have moved from 3 times! I am so sick of it! I just want to be much more settled and stay put for a while, alas, this is still not going to happen for a while yet. But on the up side we are going to be moving back to Sydney, my home town!!!!!

I miss being there so much! We have been living in places where life moves at a MUCH slower pace. For a girl who grew up in Sydney, I found it so difficult to unwind. Every time I would just start to love living somewhere, we would have to move!

I have lived in Port Stephens for just over a year, and have really fallen in love. The people are nice, and the weather is spectacular. I can just walk down to the beach and sit there whenever I feel like it. I have never been a beach person, but there is something intoxicating about it here.....Nothing beats walking along the beach with whales breaching in the background. Or a coffee near the beach with the fresh salty air blowing through the cafe....

Almost every time I go for a walk someone wants to stop and talk. If it isn't little Chucky that starts the conversation then it is my gorgeous daughter. I will miss that. Sydney runs at such a fast pace, and people don't tend to care about their neighbours like they do here.

On the up side, I will be closer to my family. I have missed them so much. In the time we have moved, my brother got married and had a little girl. I can't wait to be a proper auntie, not someone who fly's in and out and who the little miss M is scared of!

We shall also be living with my MIL, so I'm very nervous about that. We have no choice, we have had to move so quickly, that this is our only option for now. I am just hoping that we don't kill each other, there will be a lot of us under the one roof. I don't care how nice everyone is, you can never be happy moving back in with mum and dad!

I am desperately hoping that I can keep baking. This is my first thought hahaha, not anything else. I truly love baking and to have to give that up for maybe 6 months would kill me.

I have also frantically made quite a few soap loaves, there is no way I would make them in someone else's house, it takes up too much room. So I have been trying to get my fix before we leave in 2 weeks, EEEEP!!!!

To be continued.....


  1. Where have you been ! I miss you !
    I cannot wait for your blogs in Sydney and to finally meet you!


  2. Oh darling, I know what you mean! My lease ends this month and I'm trying to decide whether to stay here in a too-expensive place or move, which will involve going home for a bit first. Leaning towards the former even if it sends me broke, because I like being independent!

    I'm sure the move will work out wonderfully for you though, and you'll all be on your own feet again soon. Focus on the excitingness, yay!! :) xo

  3. Yay for moving to Sydney & being closer to your family :) Would be hard leaving such a pretty spot to live in NSW though. I hope to transition goes smoothly :) x

  4. ahhh so busy busy busy! I'm surprised you're not totally nuts :) Good luck with the move and everything. Hopefully you can use your MIL to full advantage :P you know, babysitting when you need some sleep or baking time! I'm v happy for you to be back to your beloved Sydney soon.

  5. I can't wait Hannah!!!

    I actually think I am a little nuts right now Heidi. But i'm trying my best to stay a little sane, for Georgi's sake !
