The last few days, today in particular, have been pretty tough. My younger sister is moving to Melbourne, Australia, with her husband. This has been coming for a while and I still remember putting the reminder in my phone for today a while ago, thinking that there was still some time to go. That time has really gone by so fast!
I was not a fan of their decision to leave South Africa for Australia and I am still not too keen on it mainly because I will lose the face to face relationship. My reasons are mostly selfish, I know, but they are there nonetheless. Fortunately she is married to a good man who will look after her. His brothers are in Melbourne already and she has a couple friends there with another joining her in the next month or so. I wish her and her husband well and anyone else taking the plunge too! As for me, I’ll be staying put for a while still.
