Falling Into Place

SO, remember when I said that this move seemed SO far away (I think it was about a year ago)… well, it’s this WEEK!  Part of it, anyhow.  We’re doing things very methodically, not rushing haphazardly into the Great Unknown.  Hunny is flying overseas this Sunday (the 5th), on stand-by (so that date might change if he can’t get a seat on the only plane going over that day… but more than likely he’ll be able to get ONE seat) – so it’s really count-down time now.  After he leaves, though we’re not entirely sure when, the Littles and I will be moving closer to our church and friends.  As lovely as it is here, it is also rather isolating.  Much of Canada is like that, unless you are in the  bigger cities… but more even for us as there are no children around at all, least of all English speaking ones.  Back in town, they have their friends, our church family, and we’ll be a lot less isolated.

This will be probably the hardest part about this move… the separation.  I feel so much for those families who have to be apart as they try to build up their financial requirements for Spousal Visas and the likes.  I mean, we are doing this by choice (to give Hunny more freedom of movement that will hopefully mean he’ll find work that much faster), but some people are stuck with their soul-mate on the other side of an ocean for months and months against their choice.  Sometimes even with children waiting too… (((hug))) to each of you as you face this trial.

Hunny’s freedom comes at a price though, a funny one.  We have NO idea WHERE we are moving to.  No, really… as in, what city we’ll be living in in hopefully just a few months.  It makes it hard to plan and research, I have to say.  This causes ME stress… exciting stress, but stress nonetheless.  Will we be in Cardiff, Derby, Devon, York, Glasgow?  No idea… that’s kind of exciting, but also kind of scary.  I can’t plan.  I’m a planner by nature.  LOL!  This is like free-falling.  But I have faith it’ll all work out.

SO, we have our British Passports, as you know.  We have our Canadian Passports for visits back home.  We have Hunny’s travel date.  We have faith.  Sounds like we’re right on track! 🙂

  1. Blessings, Tony, on the beginning of your quest on the UK side. I know it’s not really the beginning of your journey…but a whole new chapter opens up once you step off that airplane. Know that we will be here if Shannon needs us…we’re just a phone call away for her and the Littles. You are all in our prayers on a daily basis. Shannon – you know this, right? I’ll amp things up to cover travels with some extra OOMPH. I love all of you dearly.

  2. Glasgow would be nice 🙂

  3. Has he checked the websites for Logistics jobs in England? I see there are quite a few of them. Where is he flying to?

    • He’s flying into London, but then travelling to Derbyshire where his family is… though we have no expectations of staying there. From our research there are many positions… and he’s getting many calls already from recruiters he’s sent his CV off to… so that’s promising anyhow. I don’t know that he’s applied to anything in Scotlamd, or Wales … Um, maybe Wales. But we’ll see where the Lord leads us. 🙂
