My Lords, Ladies and Gentlemen. We have some news for you.
No, we are not getting married, having a baby, or adopting reams of children from third world countries, although that would be fun.
No – we are moving back to England, at least for the time being.
Basically, Alex has been offered a very good opportunity in London by his firm, and he simply can’t turn it down. We have discussed it ad nauseam and we have come to the conclusion that it is the best decision.
So, to summarise:
– We will be leaving Singapore in one week’s time, and spending two weeks in Phuket before going back to London;
– We will be back in England for an unspecified period of time.
Clearly, dear readers, you will understand that my blog cannot continue in its current form (I shan’t be English Girl In Asia any more, except when we are in Phuket!)
However, over the past few months I have grown to love writing this blog. I think it is because Alex has always steadfastly refused to buy me a cat, and blogging is clearly my cat-displacement therapy.
Therefore, I propose to continue this blog, at least for the time being. I shall blog about our remaining time in Asia; about our move back to London; about settling back in to life as a non-Expat.
If you all get bored and stop reading, my trusty little site stats will tell me, and I will simply stop writing.
Thank you for all the lovely emails and messages I have received in the course of writing English Girl In Asia – not just from family and friends, but from very nice strangers, too. I really appreciate it, and if any of you ever need any help or advice on moving to Singapore, I’m your lady. I will only charge you $100.00 an hour (that was a joke).
I am now going to leave you to go and look at all my stuff that needs to be packed back up and sent back to England, and try not to have a hissy fit.
Lots of love,
A rather exasperated Jessy xxxxxxxxxx
