A very big year...

Oh hi! Come in, sit down and have a cuppa wont you?

So, I have something to tell you. It's kinda big and it is very very exciting for us.

Do you want to guess? No... I'm not pregnant :p

I'll tell you. We are moving to the UK!

My lovely hubby has been offered a marvellous position in Birmingham and we are all thrilled to bits about this new family adventure!  It has been an incredible (in every sense of the word!) journey so far and we are delighted to be able to finally share this news with you :)


I'm sure it probably explains a few things :) Of course I'll still be around in this space, but there will be a little less making and a little more packing and bearing finding...

So, what do you know about Birmingham or the UK or Europe that would be handy to know or great to visit? Any bloggers close-by? Any tips, tricks or pointers gratefully accepted!

I hope you haven't choked on your cup of tea... :) And I'll make sure there is a fresh pot on if you should ever find yourself in our new neck of the woods!

  1. Wow! That's a big move! I'm looking forward to seeing all the new scenery on your blog. The only thing I know about Birmingham is that Fox News doesn't know squat about it but opines anyways :) #foxnewsfacts

  3. Exciting! We have just come back from a 6 month stint in Prague, which was pretty good. The flights, and resulting jet lagged kids were a bit miserable, but that passes pretty quickly really. Enjoy your big adventure!

  10. It will be the best thing you will ever do! Go wide and far in weekends.. ooh all the little villages - but Birmingham will have you busy for while alone. We have lived in 3 countries and I wish, wish we went again, but with kids in the higher classes of high school, it gets a bit tricky! Enjoy every bit!

  24. Hi Leonie, I have just popped in for a visit and a long read up. I missed this! I don't know many other bloggers but you were one person I had hoped to meet one day- that might still happen- you never know! You are so brave to move so far away. Your girls look like they've coped so well with all of the changes. I'm looking forward to following you on your new adventure, so as you said 'I'll be back' : )
