Now we have been hoping to make the move to a residential mining town for a while now. It seems the best thing to do for our new family. To save the pennies and buy a home of our own. It will be a great way to get ahead. BUT holy moly - now that it is happening I am freaking out a little. In a good way though. I am excited!!
Rio Tinto will be flying us to Karratha on Sunday where we will spend the night in a local hotel. We will pick up the car and make the drive to Pannawonica where we will inspect the town and the mine site. I will have to wear steel capped boots and one of Levi's reflective work shirts, so I will get to make a really stylish impression :)
We will be leaving the small person with my mumma for the night, so I intend to make the most of it and turn the whole thing into a little romantic get-away!
I hope so much that my house up there is an older one! With wooden floorboards and window frames. One thing I know for sure is that there are NO OP-SHOPS in Pannawonica. And my morning coffee will now need to be made at home rather than around the corner at my local cafe.
I also hope that Rio will be footing the bill to move us up there - because I think we will need an entire truck just to move my vintage fabric collection!!
Yes - naughty industries will be continuing even though I am living in the desert. I just might need your help replenishing my fabric stocks.
Please if you live in the Pilbara - let me know what to expect!!
