It has been nine weeks since we were tossed out of our expat life and came to the conclusion that we needed to redefine our priorities – for now. This has lead to Wallace getting a comfy job in Melbourne with all the ”rat race” necessities: two cars (hallelujah! I just love the freedom of driving!), mobiles, parking and toll fees and re-registering to vote.
Most of my time has been spent unpacking boxes and finding little treasures I had forgotten about and making a home out of this house we built five years ago yet have never lived in as a couple – on our own.
The photos above are of my backyard here – a far cry from the desert of Arabia: bliss! And that’s me dangling out of a window in Gargaliani, Greece in 1958.
Continuing to write this blog has been on my mind and my absence from it has been because I keep asking myself, where to from here? What do I write about now that I am no longer an expat? Then I think, well, I have lived in Qatar, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Indonesia; perhaps I can write about those adventures. There have also been a dozen trips to India, some great experiences in America, the UK, luscious Paris and of course, Greece!
Let me put it out there: what would you like to know?
