i spent 3 days last week with my girl and our mutual friends, down clifton springs way. it was so good to have their company, and so good to have that time with vic. we spent hours walking on the beach, fossicking for seaglass and interesting shells, and very much enjoying each others company.
we drove back to melbourne on thursday, and in the morning i went to work and she went to the airport.
when vic landed she sent me this text: "babe, am sad. will have to be a better way than this. xx"
i replied that i agreed, and we'd work something out.
two hours later my boss called me into her office and fired me, for no particular reason other than that she doesn't much like me. well, as you can imagine, that threw me! particularly as i quickly remembered that i was to be out of a home in a couple of weeks, and had made no plans regarding a new abode. i walked out of work, and got on a tram to the beach. it's the best thing i could've done, an hour in the sunshine helped to clear my head and lead me to thinking about my options.
the option i've chosen, the only obvious one, is to go and try my hand at desert life for a while. perhaps it'll just be a few weeks, perhaps it'll be a longer stint. i hope it works out there, i would like that. i am excited to be embarking on this adventure, it's not what i saw myself doing.. but it's perfect. the timing is too much of a coincidence for me to ignore this possibility.
so that's it blogfolks, i'm off to the outback to live in a tiny town on my own, as vic will be away for weeks at a time.
it scares the shit out of me, but at the same time it just feels so very very right.
