This is an Australian blog - maybe not quite true blue, perhaps more true periwinkle or true sapphire. Anyway, point is, I am Australian and this is my blog. I don't particularly identify as being "Aussie" - I never say 'g'day' and am completely disinterested in AFL. But I do spell recognise with an s, not a z; I knit moss stitch, not seed stitch; I cast off, I don't bind off; I go to the op shop, not the thrift store and in my craft lexicon there's no such thing as single crochet. My locally posts are about my local neighbourhood (note there's a u in there) which I love and where I have lived for nigh on 20 years (with a few excursions). Whenever I read the international news I am grateful for Australia's political stability, good free health care and easy-going lifestyle.
So, what will happen when we move to Seattle next month? Yes, we spent a good 2.5 hours yesterday at the US Consulate General here in Melbourne applying for our visas. Tim has a 12-month contract at Microsoft Research and I am gearing up for my year as a dependent (potentially the most challenging aspect of the whole venture). Thanks to the internationally accessible nature of the internet blogging will continue, as will crafting. Locally posts will take on a whole new flavour.
Twelve months - goodness, in that time I may even get something done.
ps - if you're in the Seattle area and read this blog, please do let me know!
