So as many of you already know sadly we are leaving Singapore after (for me at least) just over five and a half years here. This isn't a post I particularly ever wanted to have to write but sadly I must. Naturally there are a whole mix of emotions going on but I am truly sad to be leaving a place I have come to consider as my second home and somewhere that I've made a life for myself in.
We'll be returning to the UK for now. I say for now as I strongly believe our days of living abroad are far from over but as yet we just don't know quite where. For those wondering, of course George our wonderful cat will also be joining us for this new chapter in our lives.
I have many fantastic memories from my time here that I'll always hold dear and whilst no where is perfect and we've certainly had good times and bad I can't imagine having not taken the chance to live here now. Singapore will always be special to me but who knows what the future has in store for us ....
There is lots I shall miss, in particular all our wonderful friends. We've been fortunate to live in the same condo (albeit in different units) our whole time here so I shall miss our local neighbourhood and the people I've got to know around here. Likewise I shall also miss my work colleagues who have been a great bunch of people to work with. I could go on and on about the things I'll miss but maybe I'll leave that for another time!
So as life gets a little crazy now with farewells, packing and making the arrangements for some very important cargo to take his first flight I also wanted to let all of you know what the future holds for us. I shall continue to blog, I have a number of Singapore posts still to share as we try and do the last few 'must dos' so this blog isn't ceasing just yet. I do plan to start a new blog, I can't imagine not doing this anymore, which I am in the process of doing and I'll let you all know once it is up and running. As I say I certainly won't forget this blog (I've poured too much love into it these past years to do that) but obviously this one is very specific to life here so I feel the next stage of our lives needs something new. I do hope some of you will make the transition though and stay with me as I move on from Singapore.
Watch this space!
