Secure Housing

I’ve just signed a 10 year lease with Housing SA for my unit. The relief is overwhelming. I can’t see straight or feel my body. I’m about to go back to bed.

For the next 10 years, unless I really screw something up, I have a home. I also have permission to install a cat run, plant trees, and dig out my front lawn to put in a herb garden. I have made the difficult decision to rehome Zoe through the SA Dog Rescue people although she is still living with me until a new home is found. I’ve been putting a lot of thought into how to modify my situation to reduce stress for me. These are key changes – keeping the cat safe, contained, and away from birds, rehoming the dog somewhere really good, and digging my potted garden in and installing a watering system. I want my fruit trees growing in the ground where they’re easier to keep watered, my herb garden back up to standard, and a patch for veggies. I will have to give some consideration to the possum/veggie situation…

Next year I’ve signed on for three subjects in my visual art degree, keeping my options open. I will keep my ear to the ground about continuing with eating disorders work. Apart from that I will be working on the DI, developing my face painting business, and hopefully taking a day or half day a week to work on publishing booklets of my work. Also finish my online portfolio. That’s really very exciting. 🙂 In the meantime, I have a couple of weeks to get organised for Christmas, I plan to bake and make chocolate truffles of various types. My inner bakers and gift-buyers are patiently waiting their turns. 🙂 I’m also planning some time off in January because it’s been very busy over the last couple of months and I can feel myself wearing out. I want to go camping and get out in the bush again. My soul needs some stars over me, some wind on my skin.

This is my home, this is my home, this is my home now. I can start dreaming again.

I appreciate hearing from you
