We arrived in Australia to start our new life today.
I've always had a head for dates - remembering birthdays and anniversaries without any effort. I'm glad that I can make this date dual purpose - and bring some positivity to an otherwise sad association.
I hope I can do that with Poppy's due date too. Although it was the middle of freezing cold January, we took the day off for a day trip to the seaside at Brighton and it was good and healing to spend that time together and acknowledge what might have been. I hope the next time it comes around we can start something positive in Poppy's memory. In summer.
Its been an exhausting and busy week. I'm looking forward to a couple of weeks downtime in tropical Brisbane before attending to the graft of finding a job and a place to live in Melbourne.
