Sometimes, you just have to will it into being.

A few months ago, I wrote that Inspector Climate had a job interview for a job in Tasmania.

He didn't get it.

He got a better job – in Tasmania – instead.

My boss has said I can transfer offices and so, we're moving to Tassie, bitches.

(Bitches was just for emphasis...)

In fact, as this (wildly boring) blog post gets published, we're flying down to Tasmania to look at houses... to buy. We're not messing around, ladies and gentlemen, I can almost feel the kitty and puppy cuddles, they're so close!

It's... a bit unreal. The houses that we're looking at have established fruit trees, and a little land, and room for a dog, and some of them even have space for me to teach yoga on the side (I KNOW, right?).

It feels so grown up to be talking about buying a house. But it also feels a bit overwhelming to be considering leaving the city I've called home for the majority of my 20s. How will I make new friends? Will I finally have to drive on the left side of the road... by myself? What if I never see some of my favourite Melburnians again (Kirsti! You'll come visit, right?). What if? What if? What if?

Look out, Tassie, we're coming soon.


  1. This is so, so great to hear. You've waited so long for this! It's all happening! Big congrats to you both.

    1. Thank you so much! It's amazing and overwhelming all at once - like all the best things are! How are you? xoxo

  2. This is so exciting! I'm dying to visit Tassie. Congratulations on this huge step!!

  3. GASP! This is so exciting! Congratulations!!! (with three exclamation points, no less)

  4. That's some super exciting news. And PUPPIES!

  5. Ooh, Tassie! I remember speaking about this :-) So please it's happening and I can't wait to see photos of the yard, fruit trees, and animal friends!

  6. That's outstanding! I totally understand all of your feelings... it's hard to pick up and make big changes, but when there's so much opportunity, you also have to feel so excited, and that jumble of simultaneously conflicting feelings is... confusing. But we have each other to vent to about the struggles =)
