Stress < it happens
Over the past 3 weeks, I gave work an end date, got some awful flu, organized the movers, booked a motel in Picton, booked the Interislander ferry, sold lots of stuff, gave lots of stuff away, sold a car, organized the rest of the stuff, finished work, travelled the length of the country by car half a day ahead of the worst snowstorm to hit New Zealand in 80 years (we woke up to it at Taupo), somehow Jacinta and myself kept 3 kids amused for 4 days traveling, spent 2 days at the inlaws, went to bed late – got up at 1:30am, drove back to Auckland to catch the 6am flight to Brisbane…. And here I am. 33,000 feet up and just over halfway to Brissy. Missing Jacinta and the kids already… Phew. We even got our house rented within a week… Karma.
By 1pm today (Thursday) I will be well and truly an expat – staying at the Holiday Inn, Port Moresby for the next few weeks whilst I find somewhere to live.
Wish me luck 🙂
