Just realised, that, give or take a few days, it’s been 10 years since I moved out of home and moved in with my girlfriend, who eventually became my wife.
Ten years. Doesn’t seem like a long time, but it’s nearly a third of my life, and a hell of a good time 🙂
In that time, I’ve lived in seven different houses, in … Carlingford, Newtown, Wanniassa (Canberra), Newtown again, Westmead, Wentworthville and now Blacktown. Didn’t always move because I wanted to, haven’t always been that happy with the house. All rentals, though maybe that will change soon.
But it’s not the house you live in of course, it’s who you live with. We had roommates a couple of times, real poorly the first time, not too bad the second. But it’s been Sallie and I for all that time, and then Will, and Alex, and soon another little guy (didn’t know that? Will elaborate here soon…) And various pets of course, mostly cats. It’s all about family, and it’s worked for me.
Wow… ten years… 🙂
