Good & Bad

And... there I go again, disappearing for random days and forgetting to blog.

It's been crazy around here. I'm still without a car and without a job, but on the bright side - we found an apartment! I researched like my fingers were about to fall off, I looked at a few places with some good company, and I put together a kick-ass application to rent and wham!

We have a place. It's pretty fantastic too: it's a brand new unit in a brand new complex, has air conditioning (double woo!) and wooden floors. It's also fairly close by to a train station (as in, across the road) so Jase can get to work in the city easily. We move in on January 7th, and I can't wait - we'll finally be back to our little family unit again.

Unfortunately though, there's been some bad news too. My nan, my gorgeous, sweet-tempered and completely beautiful nan, has just been diagnosed with breast cancer. She's coping remarkably well with it all so far, but we've all been a bit of a mess around here. The past week has been spent in all sorts of treatment rooms and diagnostic centres, to try and see how aggressive it is. It breaks my heart to have something like this happen to someone like her, but all I know is that I'll be there to support her no matter what happens.

Somehow there are only five days left until Christmas - and it still doesn't feel like it's that time of the year yet.  I hope the spirit will hit me by Saturday, because this is usually my all-time favourite holiday.

Big hugs to your nan (and your family!). I'm not really feeling the Christmas spirit either. Hopefully it shows up soon!

I'm so sorry to hear about your nan! Hopefully it's early stages and she can just have some treatment and be done!

I think it's been hard for people to get in the Christmas spirit this year because the year literally FLEW by! The good news about that - it means you're that much closer to being in your new apartment!

Your Nan is an amazing woman and an absolute lady. Sending lots of positive vibes her way so that she has the strength to fight this battle. xx

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear about your nan. I hope all these follow-up tests show that it's in an early stage and easily treatable. Keep us posted!

Congrats on the apartment! What a relief!

So sorry to hear about your Nan. Very tough stuff!

Exciting about the new place though! Have to say it is so damn cold here I can't bear the thought of air conditioning right now :)
