Belated valentines dinner Outfit Plus BIG NEWS!

Doin a wee pose, being fancy.

Losing my composure!

Ben really dislikes having his photo taken/taking photos so its a challenge to get him in any, or to take them even!

Sheepskin Overload! Hat -charity shop, Collar -Free P Star Vintage in Paris.

Necklace- Black Sanctury, Sheer Spotty Shirt- charity shop, Wool Swing Coat- Tesco sale a few years ago (I know right!)
Velvet shorts -Missguided
Belt- a gift from a customer, I think of it as my 'Gemma from Sons of Anarchy' Belt as she has a similar one in that show.

(I don't have a penis--I had a heat pack in there for lady time cramps! Too much info? Sorry!)

rings gifts from loved ones.

We finally had time to go out for a Valentines meal as both of us were busy working, so we got dressed up (for once!) went out to one of our favourite semi-fancy resterants Indian Summer, it was lovely as always! They treat you with delish aperitifs and in-between course surprises. Very romantic! That was our second valentines together, on the day I treated Ben to a whole day of pampering and a hand made card which he loved...

inside featuring passport photo of my head exploding
NO stealing my card idea...haaa haa, kiddin!

(This is actually the second time I've written this post as it mysteriously disappeared, so I'm struggling to remember what I said the first time round! ugh! It went something like this I think...)

I've been really busy packing and getting ready for our move to Sydney- Yes! We are moving to Sydney in a month or two!! Crazy huh?! I'm so excited!

Ben, who is originally from Sydney, has been offered a job working in a Games Studio (that is computer games btw- He's a Creative Director & Games Developer!) so its a bit of a homecoming for him after moving to Brighton about 6 years ago. Its been a bit of a roller coaster of emotions since he told me that there was a very high chance it was happening, and now it's been confirmed we can go ahead and start planning the move. Scary stuff.

I've started to tell my loved ones about leaving and was a little surprised at the mixed reactions and general disbelief that I'll be so far away. I've already had to cope with moving away from Glasgow (where I lived for 10 years) and all my friends two years ago, as well as when I left my family to move to Glasgow all those years ago. So I know about starting from scratch, and having to make new friends all over again. (When I got to Brighton I just had a bag and had no job or place to stay, so at least it should be easier than that!) I'm just glad we have Skype now, but its not like I can just hop on a plane for an hour and be with family/friends any time I want. Also I'm worried none of my loved ones will be able to afford the hefty price tag on the tickets to come visit!

But I'm seeing this as an awesome opportunity which I would never of had, if I hadn't met Ben! So I feel very lucky, and it will be the first time I've met any of Ben's family which I'm really looking forward to. His sister Cinnamon is due to have a baby in May. Woop! So I will be an aunty of sorts!

Have any of you had to relocate far away from home? How did you cope?
