Today’s photo is one for posterity – the main group of shops in the Melbourne suburb where we currently live. How many times I have walked up past these shops on my way home, or popped out amongst them for dinner or snacks. How much has changed during that time!
I’ve never loved Syndal. I don’t dislike it… but it’s just your average, quiet, middle class suburb. But now, with our moving date approaching at rapid pace, I am seeing it through the eyes of the shortly departing. This is where my belly blossomed and grew, this is where I brought my brand new baby girl back from the hospital, here is the florist where Daddy C bought me flowers on the day of bubba’s birth, here is where I made my first outing with a brand new baby, where I grew in confidence, where I grew into the mum I am today.
So somehow there is bittersweetness to leaving where before there was just excitement. I’m still mostly excited! But I also want to remember this place, this quiet corner of the world, where both my self and my baby were born.
