All Change…

“Don’t regret the things you’ve done. Regret the things you didn’t do when you had the chance.” I’m not sure where this saying came from, but it’s quite poignant for me right now.

I did a blog post a while ago, about the prospect of change, about how it can be scary, and weighing up whether taking a risk is a good thing to do. You can read it here, but this is the thing. Last week, my husband went for a job interview, and he got it! It’s brilliant, we’re fabulously happy about it, and I am so utterly proud of him you wouldn’t believe, but it’s now going to mean that we have to take some risks. We have an exciting journey ahead of us, moving to a new area, having never lived anywhere else apart from university years, finding a school for our daughter, me giving up teaching at least for a while, leaving our friends and families who all currently live nearby, and finding our feet somewhere new.

These are all risks as we could have stayed at our current jobs in our current town, doing the same things as we are now, but maybe these are risks too, who knows?!

I’m sure we have a stressful few months ahead of us as we try and sort everything out,  but I’m hoping the lovely people in the Twitterverse who’ve been where we are right now, might be able to offer us some words of wisdom, and encouragement when we need it!

    Congratulations! Exciting times ahead. It will be hard at times. We’ve moved to completely new areas twice (one of those times was a different country)with my husbands job but you will make new friends & you will still keep the old ones, good friends will always be there wherever you are. With the help of Facebook and Twitter it’s so much easier to keep in touch too.
    Good luck for the future
