Finding a house to rent in Melbourne turned out to be much easier than anticipated. Which is great, but also… well, it’s pushed my timeline forward by a least a week or two.

After the filling out of many forms, and providing enough documentation for someone to steal my identity, the Most Amazing Man in The Universe and I were approved for a house on our very first try.

Which is awesome. And terrifying. And awesome…. and terrifying. (I’m still not sure which. Both at once, perhaps). The reality of what I’m about to do has suddenly kicked in. I’m kind of dumbstruck by the massiveness of the task ahead.

I’m nowhere near organised enough to do this kind of thing. I’m not sure my kids, nor myself, are prepared for having the people we love living so far away.

I keep reminding myself… this is an adventure. We will be fine.

We have to be. Hopefully, we’re moving on August 24th. That’s just 24 short days away.

That’s my birthday, and nothing terrible happens on my birthday! Good Luck with the move, I feel like it’s the best thing ever for you guys. Enjoy Melbourne, I’m a bit jealous!

You can do this! Just start now by packing up all that you can, anything going into storage that you don’t need, move it into a space so you can focus on going through what you need or want with you. Everyone will still be here to visit, and will visit you guys! So happy that finding a house worked out smoothly for you guys. A sign maybe?

I’m in Narre warren if you need help with unpacking or taking kids or park dates or play dates or trackies on the lounge while the kids enjoy destroying my house days or whatever the heck you want :)

Big excitement! And moving sucks. Hope it all goes smoothly for you. If you can afford it, I could highly recommend getting someone in to help you pack. Just don’t let them unpack, or you’ll never find anything ever again.
