New Year’s Resolution – get back to blogging.
Starting with this little post.
I’ll explain the pic later. Great start with the resolutions, hey?
So long UK, so long Europe.
Although I’m not leaving you, really. You’re as much a part of me as my arms or my heart (or my Bluetooth headset). I could never truly leave.
21 years ago I showed up with a suitcase and a job folding jeans at the Gap. What happened next were many of the happiest moments of my life.
To those I am leaving behind, it’s OK. I’m right here, I’ll always be right here. Call me, text me, What’s app me, Skype me, FaceTime me, email me, tweet me. We can do this, we can stay in touch.
I will be back, often. And I will be thinking about you, all the time.
With a heavy heavy heart, I’ve just said goodbye to Jenny and the boys at Gatwick.
Our adventure begins in earnest now. They’re off to spend a week with Uncle Jeff and his family in Ottawa before the final migration to BC and I’m going home to pack up our belongings and wind down 20 happy years of being a Londoner.
Chapters end and chapters begin.
And not a moment too soon.
Today, the builders came and ripped out or leaky shower. This means that ‘projects’ have officially begun. Here beings 4 months of builders, plumbers, electricians, painters and carpenters on two continents. Woohoo!
Now, there is a warm breeze in the air and I’m feeling that spring time feeling that I had completely forgotten. Sun, breeze, light, warmth. Aaaaah.
