The End is Nigh

The time for my departure from Broome is fast aproaching.

My last shift here is in two Sundays time, and I fly back to Perth the following day. I will then be working in the office in the city (ie not observing).

So unless I find something interesting in Perth, I will be posting a lot less, otherwise all I will be writing is 'I'm boooorrrreeeeddd!'. I have only been into the city twice for leisure and once for work, so I should really do some exploring there.

It took me more than 6 months to begin to like living in Perth, and less than 2 weeks up here to forget that fact. So I guess I have to learn it again. I will be living in a new house, so hopefully that will help.

Good things about going back to Perth:
  • seeing my friends who have just moved there
  • seeing other friends
  • trying the coffee at Epic in the city
  • cheap(er) takeaways
  • Falafel souvlakis in Freo
  • Having my stuff (though not looking forward in moving it out of storage into the new place which will be smaller)
  • Visiting the new patchwork store near my old house which opened while I was away
  • Going back to Melbourne for a few days
It's going to be pretty cold for me down there, so I'm planning on wearing ALL my clothes at once until I get the rest out of storage and find them. And I'll have to buy some 'office worker' clothes, grrrr.

I lived in Freo a while ago, so I'll enjoy reading your observations on how the old town has changed ;)

I only visited Freo twice while I was living there before. Parking is horrific! There's one towering carpark, but the car spaces are so small!

Have a friend living near there now, so may visit more often!
