But I have to get up at 6am to catch the train to the airport. I’d forgotten what it was like not being able to check in online because of checked baggage. I can normally travel with only a duffel bag with everything in it for a whole week, but this time I’m taking some stuff down to Julia.
The good thing though, is that I can fill the space on the way back to Brisbane with all the clothes I buy when I go vintage shopping. Buying more things is probably not the best idea when I have to move house next week. Oh well. A girl’s got to have lots of nice clothes.
I hate buying clothes that aren’t second hand. Used clothing means no wearing in & they’re stretched as much as they’ll go so you can be sure they fit the same as when you buy them. An added bonus is that clothes from the 40s-60s were made to fit body types like mine: little in the middle but I’ve got much back.
But really, what I’m most excited about is the snuggles. There better be lots or I’ll be grumpy.
We just watched Bones together on Skype. It felt so normal, because that’s something we generally do most days when we’re in the same city. We laughed at the lame jokes & her smiles made my heart swell with love. She’s most definitely worth braving the distance.
I’ll see her on Thursday, unless the stupid volcano decides to ruin my plans. All I need to do is not focus on how much I’m hating the packing & cleaning I need to do & instead remember that we’ll be in the same city, together, by noon on Thursday.
if you could live in any place for a year, where would it be? please include a photo-link. :D
I would say… somewhere in the alps, perhaps Austria? You could go skiing/snowboarding while I make snow people & throw snowballs at you, there would be saunas, I could pick pretty flowers & give you posies, we could re-enact The Sound of Music (except we don’t need to have so many children), we could eat strudels & streusels & sauerkraut & sausages (alliteration foods), there would be plenty of good beer, we could have lots of eskimo kisses & snuggle up every day & night.
