Here I go again ...

Noun 1. Gypsy - a laborer who moves from place to place as demanded by employment. 

Ok so maybe not in the traditional sense but I am starting to feel a little bit like a Gypsy.

It was the same time last year I did a similar post - I was moving to Cairns for work.
Well this year I'm moving again, going way out west to Perth. 

Initially it wasn't an idea I was too fond of but after much thinking and many discussions, you start to understand the need to open yourself up to opportunities that come before you, both professionally and personally and just go with the flow of why they have come to you!

So it's farewell to the tropics. It's been fun but Perth holds a little bit more for me. 
The next 12 months will bring challenges at work, good ones of course but I also get to hang out with friends I haven't seen in ages, go shopping in some gorgeous shops (this is something I've really missed), not just for the shopping experience but inspiration. Oh and I get to have a winter - a true cold winter!


Beautiful Cottlesloe Beach
So I think that means I've lived almost all over Australia - Adelaide, Melbourne, Gold Coast and now Perth .... mmm that leaves only Sydney, maybe that will be next? Or back to Melbourne again? Perhaps I'll just think about the next 12 months of my life in Perth which of course I plan to share with you here.

So the search is on for a new apartment.
One thing I've discovered about Perth is that it's quite an expensive city to live in, so it looks like it's a small apartment for me!

I'll keep you all posted.


  1. Perth look so beautiful Sar,and i am sure you will enjoy much better life there. But i definitely will miss you very much not you being here with me in the store :((
