Last week my little sister emigrated to Australia. Over the last couple of months she has given away everything she owns (bar one box now sitting in my loft), packed a couple of suitcases, had an epic leaving party and gone.
When I spoke to her yesterday she said it was 28 degrees and she’d just come back from a trip to see humpback whales which are currently migrating past the Brisbane coast. She’s found a lovely flat while enjoying the sun. This week she has also been to swim with dolphins and when she popped in to introduce herself to her new colleagues they all stopped work at 4pm and had a beer with her. To top it off she nearly tripped over a two foot lizard in the park and had her lunch stolen by a kookaburra. The true Australian experience.
I have spent the week since Blog Camp at home nursing a stinking cold with snotty kids. Jealous does not even come close!
