“I HAVE NO IDEA HOW PEO­PLE DATE LOTS OF DIF­FER­ENT PEO­PLE ALL THE TIME”

Townsville Bulletin - Townsville Eye - - Reckon -

have NO mu­tual friends, he hardly does so­cial me­dia and is ex­tremely pri­vate.

There is a bit of quiet con­fi­dence about him, and he is very, very laid-back. So you know, the com­plete op­po­site of me. I like him enough to get back in the shower af­ter dry­ing off and re­al­is­ing I have shaved only one leg.

I am able to re­turn some of that su­per love and sup­port I have been drowned in the last few months.

The thing I keep hear­ing the most from my friends and fam­ily is this: “I know ev­ery­thing that has hap­pened and is hap­pen­ing is ter­ri­ble, but we get to see you again. You’re DO­ING things again, you aren’t wor­ry­ing about the bloody floors or if your hus­band has enough cooked meals for the week.”

And it’s true. Every morn­ing I wake up with Os­car with the light stream­ing through the win­dow I think I am so GLAD that I live here. I LOVE my apart­ment. It’s breezy, in a great lo­ca­tion and it’s be­come a drop-in point for ev­ery­one.

There is rarely a day that goes by that I don’t have a mate call in for a drink, or a movie or a meal. That bal­cony has heard a lot of funny sto­ries and a lot of laugh­ter.

So again, thank you to my fam­ily who just ring me to tell me they love me, to my mum for en­sur­ing I al­ways have pretty shoes and nice dresses for my date, to my friends who send me cards telling me I am a good hu­man, to Katie and Un­cle Rogg ( and all the reg­u­lars) who call out and pour me a wine as soon as I walk through The Aus­tralian pub doors, and all my friends who take a lively, errr, in­ter­est in my love life ( sorry, I am hid­ing this one for a while!)

Good eggs, all of you.
