I was yarning about some of the places I have lived to V the other night.
It got me thinking...
When I was a child, I lived with my family at Granite Glen (1)
Until I went to boarding school, but I still got to go "home" to my family on holidays (2)
And then I went to uni, where after a stint at a res hall, I lived at my Grandma's and then in share houses on both sides of the Bridge in Brisbane(6)
When I moved to Sydney, and lived in the Inner West - share-housing in Leichhardt, Birchgrove, Balmain, Chippendale, Glebe, Chippendale and Petersham - as well as house-sitting at a friend's place in Erskinville and a stint with my extended family in the Northern Suburbs(15)
Then I moved back to my family for a year, although I did get lured back to Sydney for a bit in Stanmore with a friend (16)
Then I tried travelling - ha! - and ended up in Melbourne, where I inadvertently settled for a year in three different addresses - twice with friends, one a share-house(19)
Once I realised I am just not built for travelling, I moved back to Brisbane where I lived with my sister on the Northside, a share-house and then with 'Salina's Dad in suburbs near to West End, without him in the area and then in a secret location far away and then East Brisbane with an ever changing cast of characters(25)
And here I am, at my 26th address - and I have now been here for nearly exactly 7 years - the longest I have been ANYWHERE since I was a child.
(and as an addendum, I have lived with - not counting double-ups, boarding school or res - 52 people, blood related to 7 and familially - or is that famililili? - related to 13)
How many addresses have you had?
