But I know I won’t that is for damn sure….. Goodbye again Sydney … It was the place I needed to be to meet the man who has completely changed my life and views on love and being loved but my romance with my hometown of Sydney died in the last week of the Australian summer when SS and I took a holiday break to the beach side of the north coast of New South Wales and on our return instead of feeling relaxed, refreshed and ready for more work and renovations on the house we were met by the news reports of stabbings, shootings, an all in brawl in which a kid had his eye socket broken , a birthday party being crashed and fighting that caused the riot squad being called to the local McDonald’s and the cherry on top was a young girl being bashed for her handbag on the train causing the loss of her unborn child and my first experience of someone trying to mug me for my briefcase all in the first week back at work in Sydney.
And that was when SS and I looked at each other, looked around us at our little house in western Sydney and said ” FUCK THIS SHIT” ….. We outta here.
Within a two week space of time we were headed back up the north coast with a plan to buy a house and build our dream life together away from all the disgusting violence and Sydney siders who have their heads that far up their own asses or in the bloody phones that they don’t say hello to each other in the street,they don’t know the person sitting next to them for an hour on the train each day , nor do they care. SS & I want more than that from life!!
So we set off and found an amazing house first weekend , were starstruck by it and put in our offer only to find out it was full of termites and structurally not strong enough in the supports to hold up a dog house let alone a four bedroom 3 bathroom house and really not what we wanted anyway on reflection.!!!!!!
luckily we dodged that very expensive bullet came home to Sydney, found a real estate agent to sell the Sydney property and renovations quickly turned to remodelling quickly on a budget with long hours spent ripping up carpets, painting walls , tiles and just about anything nailed down and packing our lives into a storage container bar the necessary day to day items for our full time jobs which we had to maintain amongst 1am finishes and weekend trips up the coast and hours spent trawling real estate sites !!!
We make a pretty good team though . He takes care of the solicitors and legal side of buying and selling and I’m the foreman of the renovations co- ordinating tradesman and getting the supplies for renovations but it’s now only about a week or two from being listed for sale and as of yesterday we officially have a new home that we love and can’t wait to move to. We are leaving corporate jobs to do what we love and the future is something I look forward to each day with SS . We are both very lucky to have found each other in a time in our lives where we were ready to love each other and I’m happy ….. So very happy to have this exquisite man to love .
My babies are growing up way too fast and our relationship is the best it’s been in a long time and I think they are happy that I am loved very much this time around Oh and a beautiful new addition arrives in two weeks time!! Our new cocker spaniel puppy Dexter ….
