I'm bursting to tell someone! We're going to Melbourne for five days on Thursday.
Oh my goodness!
I'm trying to think the last time J and I were away, actually staying away, overnight, not in range of work and familial commitments.
We're a couple of sad sacks really. The last time we were away was house sitting 10 minutes from home... that was two years ago. So being away-away was three years ago.
My mother's illness has definitely kept us closer to home but she has gone into respite care for a few weeks (though that is another fresh hell).
But back to me! I'm so excited I can't contain myself. We are staying with my sister-in-law which will be great. We'll be public-transporting, going to lots of shops and galleries and generally being little tourists.
Can I tell you how excited I am again!!??
