I know I have been MIA for quite some time now, and I am sorry about it. I really want to catch up with everyone, see what’s been going on, and actually create some fresh content for my blog, but I have been ridiculously busy lately. Why, you may ask? Because my husband and I have made the decision to emigrate from South Africa to the United Kingdom. Since we have decided that, life has been a whirlwind.

It’s quite a big decision, and has understandably taken up every moment of my time, from ironing out the details, getting paperwork together, my husband doing all the crazy interviews and nailing something down, the extreme calculations, packing up our home/life, to selling stuff and just all the big and small things that come with the decision to leave one’s country. In between this all there has obviously been the thing of finalising everything at our jobs and saying goodbye to everyone, so things have been mad.

That being said, I think I am fluctuating between extreme excitement and sheer terror at the prospect of venturing out into the world with no support structure of family, etc. that one usually comes to rely on. I am really looking forward to starting our new adventure, and hope to be back on the blogosphere with more consistency sooner rather than later. I think my blog is going to be living up to its namesake in the foreseeable future for a change.

Catch up with all of you sporadically, and hopefully with more regularity soon!

    congrats on the impending move Zoe!

    With the internet and our new technological world, keeping in touch with family and friends between UK and SA shouldn’t be so difficult.

    Good luck getting it all sorted out and I’m sure that (most) of ur devoted fans like me will await further updates!

    I totally missed this post… Are you in UK already? May I ask, do you move for career reasons or something else? (I also left my country 8 years ago, hence my interest…)

    1. Zoë says:

      Haha! Yep yep, we’ve been here almost three months now. Unfortunately things aren’t so stable in my home country at the moment, and we’ve always wanted to live abroad, figured we might as well do it now, grow our careers, etc.
