About a month ago I posted the news that I was back in the UK and the rest of the family would be joining shortly. I had planned to write about the process of finding a house, car, bank, etc and setting up life in a new country. I thought about creating separate posts for separate topics related to moving overseas with a toddler, dog and 2 adults. But, I haven’t done any of those things. Here we are near the end of January and it’s been silence in this space.
Why? Not for a lack of thoughts, to be honest. But more so because life has been less than glamorous, a bit tiring (okay very tiring), stressful and sometimes just plain hard. There has been a lot of stress, frustration, fear and self-doubt in the recent weeks. I knew it would not be an easy process or else a lot more people would do it. We have hit more road blocks and issues than anticipated leading to more angst than expected. However, I can happily report that the road is straightening out a bit, the potholes are becoming fewer and life is getting a little easier. In the coming days and weeks I’ll be writing a few posts detailing our experiences and getting up to speed with life across the pond. But for now, I have an important appointment with my pillow.
