So a one week later, he drove out there without me in our NEW car, bought especially for this new adventure of living in the country.
Five hours out from Newcastle, and well into the silent dark night, I realised with a slight cold fear that Grenfell was going to be much smaller than I thought.. because when we drove through Cowra (where I live now) my parents remarked upon how much larger it was than Grenfell. And we drove through Cowra in what seemed like the blink of a sleepy eye.
A place I still find weirdly strange to realise I live. In the country still, almost 20 years later, from when it all started. How did that happen!? I never would have predicted it, dreamt it or believed it. So I make no predictions for what happens next, because obviously I am total crap at it! Maybe that's a good thing?
However, I do predict that if I do not go to bed shortly, tomorrow my eyeballs will be hanging out, the bags under my eyes will be ridiculous, and my body will move as if filled with mercury not blood.
