I’m going to Perth

I have made my decision today after a good night’s sleep … whether or not I will live to regret that decision will only be known later, but otherwise I’ve wasted all that time and effort over the last two months, not to mention wasting my birthday/Christmas money that was used to pay for the kits, by not going.  I’ve actually got $1500 set aside in the bank account ready for when we find somewhere to move into (ie a month’s rent/bond in advance), so if necessary it just means holding off for a month for moving … but I’m just hoping it doesn’t come to that.  I’ll also put my name down for overtime every single day for the next month or so and hope at least a few days come through confirmed.

I’ve since found out there is an airport shuttle bus that leaves from St Kilda, that only costs $30 return, which is awesome – it’s hardly worth taking the car anyway for that price (even if I had it), especially as I’m only taking a small wheelie case for luggage.  It now means that today I need to take a couple of trains for a trip out to Surrey Hills so I can buy some 4mm ribbon ready for the class (I hadn’t been able to get there before now thanks to my shift times, then being in Sydney, and then of course having no car).  Unfortunately they don’t have any glass-topped pins or machine sewing threads, or I could get all my chores done at once … I think I’ll have to wait until my car comes back before I get them.

Well, no time to stay sitting around here … time to jump in the shower and head out for a walk to the train station, then come home and get my packing done.  I have to admit, I feel a bit better for finally making a decision … regardless of whether it’s the right one or not.  Now it’s time to set the whole lot in motion …

  1. I don’t think you’ll regret the decision. You may not have the opportunity again!! You just have to put the money and car woes out of your mind at least while you are in Perth. Enjoy your time there – I *know* you’ll have a blast!

  2. Moving to Perth?? Quite exciting Anne! I do wish your car comes home soon… it must be dreadful trying to sort out how to get errands done without it! {{{hugs}}}

  3. Anne, You might never get another opportunity like this and you should grab it with both hands. Did you see the class pieces on display when you went to the Crewel Gobelin? I visited there in 2005 whlst on holiday from the UK and Margeret was so friendly and helpful. Have a great time.

  4. Anne, I think you’ve made the right decision, I really do. Despite the financial woes of car repairs. The class is a great opportunity, and you will have a wonderful time.

  5. In my own little world, any decision is better than no decision. I hate that up-in-the-air feeling! But I think you made the right decision by going – good for you! And best of luck with the public transport system. 😉

  6. Hi Anne, I do think it is the right decision – you can’t go to such a class every day – and you have already done so much work for it. Have a great time!

  7. Yay! I am so glad that you have decided to go to Perth. There will always be one worry or another no matter how hard you (we) try so sometimes you just have to up and do it! Have fun!
