Look out, England

Wednesday, August 12th, 2015

The final piece of the ‘Get Jess back to England’ puzzle has been set – today I collected a package from the post office, walked to my car, opened it and felt a surge of utter relief (that appeared in the form of hyperventilation and a flood of tears). I have been granted my student visa and I can officially enter the UK without being arrested.

I realised I have been holding my breath for the past six months, not knowing whether or not this ridiculous plan would actually work. But somehow I now have a university placement, a visa, a plane ticket and a room to sleep in. And in 21 days I will start my next adventure. Holy mongolia.

Bye Bye Jacob

Jacob was packaged up and shipped out on Friday. I will miss having a little mudwalker in the house. My fear of going to the French post office and discovering how much he would cost to send to Australia turned out to be unnecessary. It was easy and remarkable inexpensive! So now it appears I have no excuses for not sending my friends and family back home presents. Dang.

I borrowed a cutting mat and knife off my next door neighbour, Josh. It’s handy having artists living next door to you.
