In the lead-up to 5 December (when both destination/direction were still unresolved) there were many half-serious jokes about us going to live in the forest. Of course, Vaughan quite liked the idea!
As D-day loomed closer with no solution evident, talk of forest camping became more serious and some discussion had commenced regarding a separate tent for the cats. ( I guess that would have been a kit tent)?!
Finally, barely two weeks before our exit date, we received confirmation of a
three-month temporary accommodation booking in Melbourne (part of Nick's
relocation package, though his initial contract was only delivered two days
before our departure).
As you can imagine, life in a serviced apartment is vastly different to free-camping in the forest!
Although most of our belongings are in storage we have more "stuff" than usual hotel guests, so on Tuesdays and Fridays there is a bit of a scramble to clear some space for the cleaners. Even so, they left a note for Erin on top of a pile of clean sheets because they "could not arrange this sheet" (due to all the stuff over her bed)!
