We Have News.....drumroll please.....

Ok, so Steven has told me that I can officially start telling people our news! Woohoo....how about we make it a guessing game?



We're starting a botannical garden???.....aaahh....No. How about this one?



Going on Holidays? ......in my dreams!

Ok, this one should get you closer.....



Yes, it's Canberra. No, we're still not going on holidays. Actually, WE'RE MOVING!
Yep, MOVING!

There, I said it....now you all know our news :). Steven has taken a job with the Public Service and Ayla and I are so very proud of him. He has been so patient waiting for this to come up. His first application was exactly 2 years ago and it has been a very long and frustrating process. I think he has enjoyed the simplicity of working in hospitality for the past couple of years and its close proximity to home but he's totally done with it now and ready to go back to a profession.

You're probably wondering how I feel about it....Excited! There are some parts of me that are a little nervous (mainly about the move itself) and a little sad about leaving the familiarity of an area that I have lived in for around 13 years. Sad about moving away from friends, old and new. I'm also a little nervous about having to start all over again with Ayla's schooling and friends etc. The older the kids get, the more questions they ask and the more capable they are of forming judgements. But, all in all, we are very excited....especially about the possibility of getting on a snowboard again and taking Ayla toboganning (spelling???).

Steven leaves on May 29th (yes, less than 4 weeks away) and we will follow him, hopefully, 2 - 4 weeks later.

That's it for now....I feel much better now that you all know!

Ohh I am home sick.
lucky you are a knitter, it is bloody freezing there this time of year - you need singlet, shirt, jumper, jacket, scarf and beanie just to get to the car in the carport! Your heaters won't go off til September at the earliest.
Nice one Steven - congrats.
Inner South is where you want to be (not a Northsider!)

At last something positive for you. The last 4 1/2 years have been so difficult, more than anyone knows.
I'm sad that you move further away from me, but if it makes your life better then I can accept it. We all know that you will be back, but at the moment you cannot go on the way you are. It will be good, and we will miss you until you return. And we will continue to support you until then.
love you mum xxx

What an exciing adventure for you all - you will lov Canberra - Hope that you have all of your winter things ready - I loved it when I lived there and would go back tomorrow. Are you going to be living in NSW or ACT - I have a friend who lives in NSW because she found that the services for her Downs syndrome boy were better!
