Dates

82 boxes.
Today was Pipkin's due date.

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.

    1. Thanks. I haven't ventured much farther than our friend's pool as I'm all tuckered out from the heat and jet lag but will try to take some pics for you next week.

    1. Thank you very much! I'm hoping it will be a more relaxed lifestyle than London.

  3. In a way, this is apropos. Pipkin will always be woven into your experiences, and to be starting something new and wonderful as you remember your sweet little one seems like a beautiful balance. Remembering Pipkin with you today, and wishing you many good things as you embark on this new life.
