On the road again

On the road again, I just can't wait to get on the road again ....... These words and the sound of Willie Nelson singing them are ringing in my ears at the moment.  My Husband & I and our faithful dog Buzz are on the road again.  I'm madly trying to complete some study I'm doing as well as pack up our house once again.  Last time we were packing up our house I was pregnant with Olly.  We have lived in 12 houses in the 11 years we have been together, lived in 4 different states and travelled many thousands of kilometres together.  We love travel and seeing the amazing country side of Australia but this time it all feels different.  We feel like this is a fresh beginning for us.  Going to somewhere where  not everyone looks at us in pity and says things like "we feel sorry for you" after the loss of our two babies.  We still don't know if we will ever be able to have children and are still waiting for the results of more of those tests to try and find out if there was a medical problem or if statistically we just had really bad luck.  Before we leave our current state we will be making the pilgrimage to the Outback remote mining town where we use to live, to lay some dried flowers in Opal Creek.  We are doing this for our daughter Opal so she can spiritually be with her brother, as we floated a dried flower for him also nearly 9 months ago now.  I picture them both running through the eery but beautiful landscape of outback Australia skipping and having so much fun (picture below).

We are very excited about moving across Australia again and cant wait to return to one of our favourite states.  We will be living in a lovely rural and peaceful setting.  Most of all after all the busyness of the move we are looking forward to spending time reflecting and healing as husband and wife.  Oh and buzz of course is really looking forward to chasing some of those country birds out the gum trees!
