Hervey Bay didn't work out. Unemployment and the threat of a long sweltering summer for us eskimos just didn't appeal in the end. Rick and I decided that he should find full time work again and I will continue on at the home front until we are more settled. What an upheaval- to say the least. Twice in 11 weeks we drove 1300kms with two boisterous toddlers in the back seat. Not my idea of fun not to mention I think I sped past a speed camera just hours after Rick did!
Hervey Bay is beautiful and the home of most of Rick's family. We also attended Hervey Bay SDA Church while we were there and were met with a massive amount of support and christian love. I will miss my family and friends there very much.
So where are we now? Back in Port Stephens, infact we are only minutes away from our old house. This area has a high demand on the rentals so we were blessed to get a house. Being able to crack open our boxes of belongings and make this house our home has settled our troubled minds considerably.
And now another chapter begins. Meanwhile, I'll be in the kitchen if you are looking for me (recipes to follow soon).
