Our New Home

Posted in: Family

We have officially relocated to Adelaide as a family. We have made our last road trip from Melbourne for a very long time. On Sunday morning Andrew caught a flight from Adelaide to Melbourne, Toby and I met him at the airport and we drove him straight back to Adelaide.

We had many stops on the way and thankfully my fear of going into early labour in the middle of nowhere didn’t happen. I have spent the last 5 days unpacking, setting up the house and nesting. I can’t shake the feeling that I will have to drive or catch a plane back to Melbourne any day now. I can’t believe I am staying put for good this time. I have mixed emotions about that.

It is going to take a while to get used to living in suburbia. The stillness and quietness of our new life makes me uncomfortable. I miss being ambushed by people as soon as I step out the front door. I miss the noises that remind me that I’m not alone. And I miss not having everything I want on my doorstep, especially good coffee and good food.

Change is always hard. I have had so many changes in my life and I have always been able to adapt. So I’m sure I can adapt to this change. Right now, I have to stop comparing everything to Melbourne and be grateful that the 3 of us are back together for good. At the end of the day, that’s the most important and exciting part of this next chapter.
