Hello, Saladin! Your sneaky self-pimping post on Whatever hs led me to check your blog again ;)
A MOVE! It's big, but as someone who did pretty much the same thing when my daughter was 1year old (job related + bigger house + "I want my mummy"! type thing), I would suggest you are TOTALLY doing the right thing. Metropolitan culture and an ocean view can wait until the backyard is no longer needed.
I hope you win the John W Campbell this time, and I will hopefully win the Best Talent Australian Ditmar, and we can be continent-spanning soaring parralel careers.
Only, I just made my first pro sale (do you get Cosmos magazine where you are?) so watch out for me to jump over onto your continent at some future stage ;)
Also...YARRRR! (Hint hint) (but I am forgiving of those helpless souls trapped in the world of THE MOVE, where you thought it would be easy to pack that box, but only if the bloody TODDLER stops taking things back OUT and EATING THEM) ;)
P.S. I have also noticed the lack of gratuitous baby pic
