Life Update.



Where do I even begin.. It's been almost 6 months since my last blog post and so much has happened since then.

The last time I sat down to write a post I was living with my flatmate and her toddler. Shortly after writing that post we changed internet providers, and long story short, things kept going wrong and we ended up without the internet for a good few months. Without the internet I pretty much stopped using my computer completely. I had my phone for my daily social media apps, but blogging took a backseat as there was no way I was going to attempt to jot out a blog post on my phone.

During this time things came to an end with the guy I had been seeing, May through July, who I hinted about here on the blog a couple of posts back. This was hard for me at the time as he was the first person I had allowed myself to be in a "relationship" with since leaving my long term partner the previous year. It was an absolute blessing in disguise though as it opened me up to meeting David, pictured above, who I have been dating for the past 5 months now. Basically my flatmate encouraged me to get back on the online dating apps and find myself a "distraction". At this point a distraction was the most I could hope for. I had essentially given up on finding love at that point in time. Lucky for me, the universe had other plans, and David burst into my life and my heart before I even knew what had happened.

There really are no words to describe the connection I have with David. Meeting him was like finding a missing part of me that I wasn't aware was missing. I knew he was the one for me before we even met in person. We'd talk on the phone for hours on end and it was like talking to a best friend I had known my entire life. We'd already decided that if there was no chemistry when we met that we would still be friends because of how much we had in common (same nicknames, same starsign, had the same breed of dogs, studied the same thing out of high school, had both been graphic designers in the past - the list goes on). Fortunately chemistry wasn't an issue and we were instantly drawn to each other. There was no awkwardness or having to get to know each others bodies/minds and ways of doing things, we just meshed together perfectly.

Things moved very quickly with David, and two days after we'd met he asked me to be his girlfriend. There was no messing about with this guy. He knew what he wanted and he didn't hold back. This was such a turn on for me and solidified in my mind that he was just the guy I had been looking for. Things weren't completely smooth sailing though, at least not logistically. It turned out that although David owned his own home in Brisbane, he was actually working and living in Sydney. We decided early on that the most important thing was for us to be together, and so me moving to Sydney quickly became our goal. In order for this to happen David decided he needed to finish off the renovations on his Brisbane home as quickly as possible so that he could rent it out and save some money, making it easier once I'd move down. This meant that David would fly back up to Brisbane almost every weekend, which made the long distance thing a million times easier. Despite this, to make things even easier, we quickly decided that I should move into his reno house so that there was less mucking about when he'd come up to work on the house. This was perfect for me as his house is virtually around the corner from my work, whereas my previous living quarters was a 40 minute drive away. His house also had a huge backyard for my dogs and so much more space and privacy. Things just seemed to be working for us, and they have been continuing to.

Fast forward to today and David and I are stronger than ever. The reno house is pretty much finished, and in the next few weeks I will be moving down to Sydney. All I need to do now is sort out a job transfer and start looking for work. The rest will figure itself out. The universe is on our side. :)

So tell me.. what have you guys been up to? I'm almost certain that nobody reads this blog anymore, but just in case I'd love to know what has been going on in everyone's lives!

Until next time..
