This has been one amazing week and much of it I couldn't post about until now. First August Rock has been sent guaranteed post (because of the strike on Friday) to the Daily Mail First Novel Competition. I am pleased that I met my target. I know in my heart that it's not the standard of a winner because I didn't have the time to do the fine tuning but I did rewrite it in time so I'm pleased especially when you read what I have to say below.
If you remember my dd made her first Communion just over two weeks ago. Her God mother came. Her husband used to be my dh's boss a number of years ago. Well he left the company my dh works for four years ago. He has just been appointed Chairman of the Board of a new start up company based in Dubai. You can see where this is leading I'm sure........sleepless nights, huge heart wrenching decisions...........
Yesterday dh handed in his resignation. He has been with his current company for almost 27 years. It was a decision that was not taken lightly. It will affect so much in our lives. Yes, mine too for I was the global coordinator for their Spouses Association and feel so tied to the organization. My friends will remain but that sense of belonging to something will be lost. So there is much sadness in the joy and excitement.
The kids are thrilled as Dubai is still close in their minds. I'm happy as I still have friends their. I'm sad that the kids will not rediscover their American halves. That will have to wait for another time. My Dh is happy to have an exciting new opportunity but this time unlike past moves he too will be the new kid on the block!
So now to redirect the movers and everything else as we head east instead of west.
