Full Speed Ahead.

I know it's a few days into the new month, but I still can't believe it's November.

I can now officially say that I'm moving overseas and seeing Jason next month. How awesome terrifying bizarre is that? Next freaking month.

I'm stuck in a strange loophole at the moment. In one respect, the next two months are going to fly by, and I feel as though I should be doing something, anything to get organised. But on the other hand, there really isn't much I can do yet - it's way too early to start packing, and I can't begin the process of selling my car as I still need it in the meantime.

I do have some things in motion though, let me tell you just a few of them:

*I'm registered with a couple of teaching agencies, all looking for positions starting in January. I've heard a few good things, but nothing definite - which is secretly freaking the hell out of me. I know it's still technically early days, but I was always so confident that my dream job in a dream location would be waiting for me..

*I've annoyed Jason about the apartment he found for us overseas - I want photographs! I want this! I want that! I want, I want, I want. I think I've played the part of the whinging girlfriend fairly well, if I may say so myself.

*I'm trying to make myself free for anyone who wants to catch up for coffee with me from now until December. That sounds a bit snooty when I write it down, but I've been ready to make this move for months now, so I'm not going to push if people don't want to make the effort. It's up to them.

*I've bought a stack of storage containers for here at home, to pack up the personal items I'm leaving behind. I have already filled two of them completely with books, so I'm going to have to go and purchase at least another half dozen more sometime soon.

Now it's just sitting.. and wishing.. and waiting. Not long to go!

I thinks somebody used the 'future date' feature of wordpress :)

Cheata Reeta!

Oh yeah...and November? WTF? What happened to September. May? Did we skip months this year?

Got time for visitors over the next month? LaLa and I should go for drives!

Erin said...

I'd love to catch up with you over coffee...but there's the whole problem that you live in Australia and well, I don't! :)

Kristie said...

It's crazy how times flies the older you get. Or maybe it's just that I'm old.

Miss-Mrs a blog of everyday delights said...

Wow! What an adventure!!!! That's so exciting. And yeah, I can't believe it's November either!

Jennie said...

I bet you're getting so excited and rightfully so. I can hardly wait to see pictures of your apartment. And although I won't be able to make it for coffee, I am sending you virtual positive thoughts to make the transition as smooth as possible.

natalie said...

so soon! are you still gonna blog when you move? you'll be so busy, you'll forget all about us! I'd totally be antsy and hounding about pictures of the apartment. so exciting, I'm excited for you!

Jamie said...

That's very exciting!

I have site question for you when you get back. Email me? I'd love you forever!

Leslie said...

How long will you be in London? Wow! You're gonna sell your car! So are your parents gonna convert your room into a rumpus room?

Valerie said...

How exciting is that?

You're right about time passing quickly - it definitely moves faster the older you get.

Nic said...

It's going to go faster than you ever could believe it would. And it's going to be both scary and awesome. But you'll get Jase hugs in the end, and what more could you need?

Laurel said...

I am so excited for you, Aly. This is really happening!!! Adventure!

Lara said...

wow, that sounds simultaneously exciting and terrifying. i can't imagine just picking up and moving to a foreign country. but i'm really happy it's happening for you, and even happier that you'll get to see the boy again soon. :)

Katie said...

How exciting! It's going to be such a wonderful adventure for both of you. :)

Viviane said...

You'll have a blast! And watch out, the next two months will fly, so use the time you have left with family and friends well...
Maybe you can even come visit me in Barcelona (or Germany after I've moved back there) sometime!

Julie said...

This is so exciting!!!
I am free any time this week for a latte or two.
Come on over!

Kristabella said...

It's getting so close! This is so exciting for you!

Lindsey said...

I'd have coffee with you if you weren't so damn far away!

sognatrice said...

I'd be up for coffee too; maybe you can stop here on your travels? ;)

Katie said...

That has to be a weird feeling knowing that you will be living in an entirely different country next month. I can barely pack for a one week vacation, so I can't even imagine how daunting it is to pack for a whole overseas move! And you know if I lived in Australia, we would totally have gone out for coffee by now :)

angela said...

I hope this next month goes quickly. It sounds like you should have plenty to do to keep yourself busy!

Nicole said...

Before you know it you will be all packed up and ready to go! It's so exciting! You have to share photos of your new place when you get them :-)

Michelle said...

i'm so excited for you!
one month will go by before you know it my dear :)

san said...

Is Jason from England? Wow, so you're moving half-way across the world. Welcome to the club :) It'll be an adventure ;)
