My husband got the job he wanted! Yay. I was so happy for him, as it was an important step up in his career. It meant big things for our family too, as it was a relocation from the town I have lived in for over 30 years, Rockhampton, the beef capital of Australia, to Brisbane, the capital of Queensland. Yes that too is very exciting. So I quit my job as a senior journalist from the local paper and I’m now looking to see what the big smoke will have in store for me. In the meantime the unexciting stuff. Packing the house. Getting rid of most of our belongings as they don’t fit in our new apartment. And now waiting for the move. This is my journey as I start to explore what Brisbane has to offer to a 40 something who doesn’t drink much, doesn’t party much and has a teenage family. Let the fun begin. Once I unpack the house.
