4 weeks from today....

This is a story I have told before - 2008 I was filling a great emptiness in my life, playing on line. I was meeting lots of people. The kind of people that I fitted in with. It was revolutionary and I learned to like myself for the first time in a very, very long time. 

And then I met Tzaizqain. Mark. If I had known what was going to happen maybe I would have hidden my heart and resisted because my firm opinion at the time was that I would never - ever - get married again. No way was I going to trust my happiness and self esteem with another person.

Me and Mark

But I didn't know what was going to happen and I accidentally fell in love with the cat. Man. Pom.

So here we are nearly five and a half years later and Mark has finally had his visa granted to come and spend the rest of his days, learning to be an Ozzie.

There are some things he has still to learn:
  • living with teenagers
  • living with me
  • being the tong master at a BBQ
But I am so optimistic. I have been very challenging over these 5 or so years as I come complete with baggage to this new relationship. Yet he has met every challenge with love and determination. He's convinced me!

So in 4 weeks I meet him in Melbourne and we work on living happily ever after!

Congrats to Mark for braving Oz. You *have* told him it's not all like Neighbours right? :-)

ROFLOL... he has a much too keen interest in seeing Melbourne. I keep telling him it is a hole (;P) but he insists on seeing it. I can't help but think Neighbours is responsible!
