just thought I'd give you prior warning of the flights to avoid . me and the kids are booked to fly on the 17/May/2008 @ 10am from Manchester. so as a word to the wise if you want a peacefull flight avoid that one. Morgan is flying on the 11/april and when he meets us in singapore, will not admit to knowing us untill he asseses how well the flight has gone and how much the other passingers hate us .I will be the harassed /stressed/ green(and depending on how the flight goes drunk!) looking mother with the 8,6 and 2 year old.
Now thats over with hear goes with the seriouse stuff!!!!!!!! Switch threads now if you want to avoid it.
We have been working towards this move for over a year now and all of a sudden I have got cold feet.
I hate the thought of what we are doing to our familys and have got a severe case of the colly wobbles. I know I am one of those people who is not the easyest to get on with at times and in common with my daughter have what I would call angles. Whilst I am also someone that would do anything for any one and hates the thought of upseting people I can also be opinionated and stuborn. I also do not make freind easily.
I have some very good freinds here who acept me for who I am warts and all and I'm leaving them behind.
I am very aware that the one thing I am taking with us is ME and that cant be left behind.
Granted I have just had the day from hell. Talking to my 86year old gran who has just been told and was needles to say very upset and the hard facts are that as she is not in good health when we get on the plane I probably wont see her again. My other gran is 93 and the same probably gose for her even though she is in good health. Will we be able to afford to come back for the funerals ? probably not.
Everybody I have met today has kept saying how excited we must be about booking the flights , and I dont think actualy no Im petrifide is the answer they are looking for!
Also I think I met the worst possible pearson I could at toddle grop today. This woman had as she put it chikened out of the move 12 months ago. She proceded to tell me in great detail however why we were making the wrong decision and that it would have cost them £50 grand to make the move even though her husbands company were going to pay for the shipping and visa costs. She must have said every other line are u sure you have done your recerch properly or I think you have got that wrong. Thankfuly I was rescuded by Pippa marching up and anouncing she wanted a wee! yeah way to go Pippsta
I know the reasons we want to go havnt changed and will not change unless we take action in one form or another but that isnt helping at the moment.
Any advice any one
Other than having a few beers and a takeaway! am doing that one anyway.
Sorry to have a rant will have to pull myself together and get on with it in the morning
but for now I needed to vent and couldnt think of a broader set of shoulders
