Life has been a bit full on for the last month or so. I finally decided to move to Darwin and have now been here for nine days.
The reason for the move was to find work. I was a bit sick of sitting at home collecting the dole, which went nowhere near providing enough money to pay the mortgage and eat.
Anyway, within five days of getting here I found a job which pays more than twice what I was getting at the factory in Tasmania, so the move seems to have worked out. (Taps self on forehead and says 'Touch wood'.)
There have been a couple of big monsoonal storms since I got here, which is lovely (I don't think the cats would agree.).
So... I have a well paying job which starts on Wednesday, I have an airconditioned bedroom and I'm around people I've known for most of my life, and we are all getting along well.
I'm pretty happy and can deal with the sweaty weather.
