This is true! Friendship is the foundation of a relationship!
Stages of Australia
Saving into my ISA
October applying for my Visa
October payment of my loan ends (woohoo!)
November upping saving
And depending on time, March or April I will be meeting Flick out there and finding our house!
I’m so blown away by the goodness of God in all of this, I was given a payrise last week effective from this month which will help, there might even be an opportunity for another. My bank manager is really lovely and has been very helpful I’ve able to be completely honest with no ‘good intention’ talk and as a result my credit rating and saving should look really healthy before I go away.
In all honesty this is the best time for me to go away and explore the world a bit. I’m so grateful I’m going with Flick and I think we’ll have the best time. I’m sad in some ways I can’t take my family and church with me but I want to be able to do something alone and bring things back. I get to be planted into an awesome church in Sydney as soon as I arrive and looking forward to helping out over there where I can!
Life is good. God, friends, family.
Getting lost in books, falling down the rabbit hole, tentatively opening that wardrobe door, walking from one world into the next by magic, mirror, broomstick or owl…I owe so much to those writers who have woven their tales into my childhood. That is, my heart.
