Car's gone, Stuff's gone . . nearly time for us to be gone

Hi All,

As the title says, the car is gone
and the boxes are gone! (plus a wardrobe and Pram).

I am now starting to get excited, happy, sad, nervous . . .a whole range of emotions!

Excited: because this is a new start, a new adventure, something I have been wanting to do for a long time and is long over due though I could not have imagined having Jasper anywhere else but Perth surrounded by my amazing supportive friends and family.

Happy: with myself, happy with life and ready to get out there and get started on the next chapter of life.

Sad: saying goodbye to family and friends and places which are so familiar to me. I know I often say it but I am truely blessed to have amazing family and friends with out whom I would not be the person I am today. They are there for myself and now Jasper, through the good and the bad times. I have people I know that I could pick up the phone and they would come over in an instant, I have others I can ring if I just need to off load and go through things in my head, I have people who are always up for an outings, others who allow me to drag them to what ever I feel like doing.
Basically I am leaving behind people who just get me, and accept me worts and all. People who have played a part in Jaspers life from the very begining and I am truely going to miss them so much! (okay getting tears as I type this)
I know though that in the modern age we live I am only a phone call, picture msg, facebook, skype, msn, blog, video call away . . .and 5 hour plane ride :-P~~
(I have people booked in for visits already and I can't wait for all of you to come over and let me show you my new state and home)

Nervous: as with any new begining or step into the unknown I have that nervousness of will it be a good move for myself and my son. Will we find new friends, find a job ( I have an interview when I am over setting up the house), how long will it take to find my way around, will the new daycare by anywhere near as good as the one here, how long will it take to start feeling like our "new home", will I be okay with Jasper on my own with no one else around . . .

So as you can see I have a whole range of emotions and things going around inside my head and heart, however I can say with out a doubt that I know this is the right thing and the best thing for us at this stage in life. Its time to head out and explore some more of what's out there.

Love to All
Cara xo
