I am so proud of my husband. He has been offered another Officer-in-Charge position and this time it looks like he will be taking it. Wowan is a town about 70km south-west of Rockhampton and at the last census registered a massive 338 residents (in the town and surrounding area)!!! Not going to think too heavily on that part - but as for the move itself, I am thrilled. We need a change and some more connect time as a family, not to mention an increase in pay that will bring us a step closer to Cameron's retirement dream.
The move will probably take place in the next 6 weeks. Cameron's roster will be an 8 days on 6 days off deal so we will be travelling between Wowan and Maryborough - until we figure out what we want to do on a more permanent basis.
Being an organiser, I have several lists on the go but this is the part that I find difficult - the waiting game. My hands are tied until they actually give us a release date. I don't have too much clutter around, as I cull regularly (one of my all time favourite jobs to do), so it is really a matter of just deciding what needs to go and putting all those things in one particular area for the removalists to pack and then triple checking that list!
So, busy times ahead for us but exciting times also. And by the way, try doing an internet search on Wowan. The only thing I can find out is that it has a golf and bowling club, a showground, a Hotel (obviously), a caravan park (although on searching that further, it has been closed but they left their website up for historical purposes!!!) and a roadhouse. I think I'll have to do a coffee shop crawl before we leave - or buy a cappacino maker.
