I’m sooo glad I delayed my departure for three days. I have no idea how I would have finished everything up in time otherwise, as it’s been uber-hectic since Thursday.
The working year finished on Thursday, topped off by a great dinner with James and Andrew at Seabay restaurant on Pitt St. Amazingly good dumplings – gently chewy, sweet dough with superb flavour – and good salads washed down with some fine wine and conversation. A top night and a place worth returning to, though jellyfish though is something I won’t try again in a hurry…
All three major projects are finally completed:
Work – the move went relatively smoothly, some hiccups as you’d expect but all the key stuff got done on time. The office looks fantastic and I know it’ll be a great place to return to when fully refreshed next month.
Mum’s house – completely empty and ready for handover. An immense amount of work, done mostly on weekends, to get to this point. But it’s going to a lovely young family, and it’s great to get my life back and have time to think about the events of this year without distraction.
Exit from The Rocks – done in quick-time over the weekend with help from Mai, Tim, James and a ute. I am officially Homeless! The end of an era, but also the beginning of a new one 😀
With all the hard stuff now out of the way, it’s time to relax and realise that by this time tomorrow I’ll be in Shanghai!!!
