So Our Adventure Begins…

There are a few reasons this poor blog has been so neglected.  Our house is now finally under offer, for the third time!  Who would have thought it would take a year to sell and having so much trouble finding suitable buyers!  We can breath a sigh of relief next week when the sale should go unconditional.

So if that wasn’t enough to occupy our time, we are moving, not just down the road or to the next town, but to BOSTON!  So exciting and daunting at the same time.  Greg has been offered a job over there and we have spend the last few months getting the paperwork together to get our visas.  We have a appointment next month at the US consulate to hopefully get the visas initiated.  The house settles next month too, so once that is all done, we are heading off.  We don’t have an exact date yet, as we don’t want to risk booking airfares just incase there is some hiccup with the visa process.

There are so many things we need to do in the next 4 weeks or so.  I can’t think much past today, or my head starts spinning.  Of course we will need to pack up our house, have a garage sale, going away party, ship our furniture, fly some 30+ hours, find somewhere to rent, find a new school, or two, as we aren’t sure which grades the girls will go into and a million other things that come with an international move.  We are looking at it as a once in a lifetime adventure that we will make the most of.  I will keep you posted with the process as we go along.  We have been in limbo for so long, it is kind of refreshing to have something so fun to look forward, so let the adventure begin!

Of course if you have any international moving/settling tips you want to share, feel free to do so!

      Thank you Zara. I am aiming to be a more consistent blogger. I miss it and I want to keep in touch with all the lovely people I know on line. I enjoy popping into you blog and seeing all the cute things you have been crafting or thrifting. I have had to keep myself away from op-shops as we have enough to ship already, so hard to stay away though 🙂 Jacinta x

      That’s so exciting Karen! Would be so lovely to meet you. We have only heard good things about Boston, although I am a bit overwhelmed by what we are going to do about schools, but I am sure we will get it sorted once we are there. You will have to give me the good oil on where to buy yarn! That is one thing I am really excited about, decently priced lovely yarn, swoon! Jacinta x

    What a great adventure! How exciting. You will certainly be busy in the next few weeks. You will love Boston. It’s one of my favorite cities to visit. Twenty years ago, I lived in Western Mass and would travel to Boston on occasion.

      Thanks Jennifer. It is great to hear another person say good things about Boston. It seems a lot of people have fond memories of visiting there. Will certainly be fun having a whole new state and country to explore 🙂 Jacinta x
