It’s all happening

For some reason it’s taking me a little while to figure out how to start this post. Let’s see if I can get this post going.

You might have noticed a little countdown ticking down on the sidebar over there. Or you might not, because you’re reading this in feedly or some other RSS reader. So this is a bit pointless.

Let me get right to the point.

I am moving to Bahrain!

Bahrain here I come!

And now I don’t know what else to add. I guess, I could say when I’m moving, right? That would be the 20th of May. That is the day I’ll be flying out of London Heathrow, heading to Bahrain via Abu Dhabi. Arriving in my final destination early morning on the 21st.

Moving to Bahrain has been a decision that’s been a long time coming and I’m incredibly excited to finally be doing it. It’s actually happening!

There’s no doubt it’s going to be a big change. For one thing, in all my life, I’ve moved a total of 6 miles. SIX. Moving to Bahrain is going to going to significantly up that mileage. By a few thousand miles, at least.

The fact that I’m moving is still sinking in. I know it won’t feel real until I actually start packing. Which, as you might have guessed, hasn’t started yet.

There’s no doubting I’m going to miss a heck of a lot of things and people here. Everything from family to friends to simple things like my beautiful fibre optic broadband. Think I’ll miss the broadband the most out of that list. (Please sense the sarcasm in that sentence. Writing this just in case the sarcasm isn’t clear enough.)

I am very excited. Excited to be moving. To be doing something new. Something I had never expected to be doing. Excited to be faced with some new challenges. And happy that I won’t be facing them alone. That’s perhaps the thing I’m most excited about.

The blog will most definitely still be here. That won’t be going anywhere.

So here I go! Wish me luck! If I may be so bold to ask for a little bit of luck.
