and then we said goodbye

Brothers top end storm :)

The Top End has been good to us.

Not counting the cyclone, kitchen fire and robberies

I started this blog and opened a little shop.

Finally got on the correct medication for my bipolar

We have welcomed a new family member. Born at home just as it should be.

My kids have learnt to swim and walk on grass.

The kids have run freely under the sprinklers for hours on end, not caring how much water they are using/wasting.

We have all held snakes, frogs, lizards and crocodiles.

my man

I have watched the love of my life become the man I knew he could be, despite so many doubting him.

We have grown and changed as a family.

Family tea party

The time has come for us to leave The Top End.

It is very bitter sweet.

We are returning to Victoria to be closer to family. And while that is exciting, I am a new auntie!! it is also heartbreaking.

Everybody from the Top End is from somewhere else. You know I can count on one hand how many people I have meet that were born and bread here? True story. Most people are without family. So, they make their own.

So even though I am going too family, turns out, I am leaving family too.

You know who you are. You know that I love you and will miss you. And this isn't really a good bye but a see you later. We love this place and our top end family

And we will be back xox
