This post has been in the pipeline for way too long. Every time I sat down to write it, the door bell would ring, someone would call or I would remember something urgent I have to do. I’m running late, I’ve only just finished packing my bags, and I have an awful feeling that I’ve forgotten something stupendously important, but I knew I had to put this out on the world wide web before I go.
I leave the country in a few hours. ‘Home’, will not be home for the next three years (save for the holiday visits) and I am being yanked nose-first out of my comfort zone, and will be plunged into all things unknown for the next few months. True to style, I have finished everything only at the 11th hour, and everything that can go wrong has gone wrong (crucial discrepancies in forms, new regulations etc etc) and as you can very well, imagine I’m nervous as hell.
This post is twofold – one is to put up a post to remind everyone, that I’m alive and the other is to thank certain people.
I am lucky to be surrounded by some pretty amazing people — wrapped in my little bubble, I know I tend to lose sight of this.
So this (at the risk of sounding like an Oscar speech) is for you. For those of you who took the time to visit and meet up. For certain people who unrelentingly bullied me into making time for them in-between my errands. For helping me pack and sort out all my stuff. For the surprise shindigs, impromptu visits, amazing gifts and long calls.
Thanks so much. I really appreciated it. You guys made me feel incredibly loved. You know who you are. 🙂
I’m off now. A long shower and a series of phone calls beckon.
So very very nervous about the next few weeks. Fingers, toes, strands of hair and everything crossable has been crossed. Await developments and many I-miss-my-cat posts.
