In Sydney all week for work, which means being separated from the husband. Not something either of us are fond of.

Smart of Westfields to have a bunch of seats outside the Sephora... For all the boyfriends waiting for their girlfriends to sit down at. There's a bunch of us taking naps atm. Lol

There's been seats outside stores in shopping malls for decades, it's not a new concept. One day you'll get comfortable enough in your relationship that, instead of sitting there like a puppy dog, you'll just go look at something else that interests you and agree to meet up somewhere in half an hour or whatev.

Yeah, she offered but I wasn't planning on doing any shopping myself... just checked through some emails and took a nap with all the other blokes before she was done and we went to let her try on clothes. I was happy to give input on that :-)

brioche toast is brilliant, great with strawberry jam and a few blackberries :)

The downfalls of working somewhere with only two employees... my colleague is on annual leave and I was up half the night vomiting. Really no choice but to go to work, even though I'm breaching terms of my employment by doing so. Fun times.

That's a tough gig there Cherry. Hope you're feeling better now and are able to catch up on sleep tonight.

On my end, I look to be moving in with the girlfriend at her new place before the end of June. Talk about a fast moving relationship. But we both agree we can't get to know each other properly unless we live together.

I'm going to have building inspectors carving holes in my townhouse ceilings around that time anyway so I'll be glad to be out of there.

It's not like the two of you are on a deadline within which you must get to know each other sufficiently in order to make some form of decision. There's a LOT of ways to get to know someone that doesn't involve moving out of your home and into theirs, such as taking a holiday or, hell, even a weekend away. Doing week-about at each other's homes for a few months to see how that goes. Six weeks is a crazy short time within which to decide to abandon your home and move into hers, you've barely even scratched the surface on who each other is this early on in a relationship.

I hope it works out for you both... but, wow.

Part of the decision to do so is based on the fact that my townhouse will be under massive balcony repairs by the end of the year. Due to the layout, I expect that my top floor (where two bedrooms are) will be inaccessible and the bottom floor bedroom will have a huge hole in the ceiling when they gut out the balcony to replace it. There's basically nowhere for me to sleep here. I'll need to clear out another bedroom upstairs too for them to be able to work on that bedroom's balcony. Similarly, the main balcony is above the garage so storing things in the garage won't work either. I may as well move all my stuff out and the girlfriend and I give living together a solid go.

Worst case scenario, we find that we have an issue that we can't work through and I'll be moving out to the north side of Brisbane like I had previously planned to do.

Lol, got a letter inviting me to a highly prestigious honours society based off my grades alone... but further research into their requirements shows that they wouldn't take me anyway because they don't accept dirty trades students :P Ah well

Was it Golden Key? I remember them trying to expand by offering just about anybody at my uni membership for whatever their high fee was.

There's one set of keys at the girlfriend's new place I cannot figure out what it's for. Driving me nuts.

Are you even an adult if you don't have a couple of keys in your house that you don't know what they're for?

I have lived in this rental for 3 years and still have a couple of keys that don't appear to open anything... I'm sure they do... I'm just not sure what.
So it seems pretty normal...
