Blog hiatus

August 4, 2012 2 comments

In less than four days time, we’ll have moved out of our flat in Birmingham in preparation for the Big Move to the good ol’ US of A. So at the moment, I’m writing this blog post sitting on the floor of our flat surrounded by the detritus of moving home (admittedly, most of it having been done by Rebecca who’s done a brilliant job, while I’ve been catching up on a bunch of paperwork and university admin stuff). It’s quite scary to think that after a whistle-stop tour across the UK visiting a bunch of friends and family we won’t see for over a year (oh, and I have to fit in a conference during this time as well…), we’ll be┬ámoving our whole lives over 3000 miles away. But we’re both incredibly excited about this opportunity and we’re now just counting down the days until we fly off.

Anyway, with my nomadic status imminent, I have no idea how much I’m going to be able to blog over the next two months, particularly without access to reliable internet (my Dad has yet to join the digital revolution and we’re staying with him for a few weeks). I’ll try my best to blog at least once a week between now and October, but even that’s not a guarantee. Once we’re settled in Pittsburgh and I’m sorted with proper ‘net access, though, normal service should resume.
