Sometimes though one gets bad news. For us it was finding out that we would soon have to leave Australia. It was not what we planned or hoped for but it is a fact. We are in one way lucky. Unlike refugees we have nothing to fear going back to Canada. We will be safe and we will be welcomed back. However, moving back provides many challenges: what to do with possessions, packing, throwing out, saying good byes, etc. As usually self reliant people, it is all a bit much in 6 weeks.
