Just in the nick of time…

17 Dec

Well, you will pleased to hear (hopefully!) that i have finally found a new home. It was getting tense. I always feel like if i just keep positive and believe things will work out, they will. But this was getting pretty damn close to the sharp rotating blade this time.

*raising fist* “Damn you fate!!”

But voila, it’s sorted itself out with less than 24 hours to departure. And conveniently the bedroom becomes available the very day i fly back into Paris. It’s such a relief that now i can enjoy my holiday without the overbearing sense that i’ll be coming home to a place where i have no home. (Not that i’m not used to that feeling, i’m just a little tired of it – sorry about the posts of doom!)

But now i’m feeling good. It’s amazing how laying one little rock on the ground can change the entire trajectory of your thoughts. In the back of my mind, returning to Australia this time felt less like a holiday and more like a location scout for the inevitable deposit of my failed life in France.

Not anymore. Now i have one hurdle jumped, albeit with a bit of a knee graze, now i can concentrate on the rest of them from the comfort of my own room.

    Excellent! I am so jealous that you are getting to spend Christmas/New Year in Australia. Have a fabulous time, and of course, MERRY CHRISTMAS!

    Thanks Girls! What will you be up to in Paris Villy?

    I’m super excited and finally got around to packing just then. Lucky, as off in a couple of hours.

    So jealous right now! I need sun. I was supposed to be going to London, but decided against it at the last minute. Doing an “Italian” style Christmas with friends in Paris, and then heading to Annecy the next day.

    Eat a mango for me!!!

    Imagine how many you have eaten by now. I was arguing with my friend how a Mango >Waffle with Nutella. He just didn’t get it.

    Kiss the soil for me, you know. It’s nearing NYE and I miss my friends in Oz. Lucky these Parisians are a fairly good lot 😉
