We have been residence of Melbourne for five days now.
It’s been pretty flipping great.
We’ve been staying down the Mornington peninsula with my parents since we arrived and it’s been wonderful watching Oliver bond with his family and knowing we’re not going to have to say goodbye.
We’ve seen a few places, and some were awful. One was a beautiful little sub let for six weeks whilst the tenant goes away, I have my fingers crossed that works out but I’m not too stressed about it.
Now that I’m here I know it will all come together.
Today we went to the aquarium with Grandma and ‘Gumpy’. Oliver had a great day and was perfectly behaved.
He loved seeing all the fishes and running around with his grandparents! Mainly, he loved the gift shop at the end…
Tonight, we have settled into the next stop along the way- James’ mums place in North Melbourne. It’s walking distance to work and a short tram trip to Oliver’s day care, so very convenient. It’s also very nice and peaceful because nobody is home- which gives me the perfect chance to freak our accordingly about starting my new job tomorrow.
There is still a lot of uncertainty, but what I do know is that everything will work out because I have an incredible support network who will make sure it does.
