Aberdeen, still not home, but almost.

We’re here, living in a bed and breakfast and feeling rather disorientated. No matter how much we tell ourselves that this is now home, it still feels like vacation. At least it’s a fabulous vacation though, this is a wonderful city and I’m so glad we took this chance.

Wednesday afternoon and all day Thursday and Friday were devoted to finding a flat. We think we’ve found a wonderful one, and we met with the landlords Friday night and confirmed details so now it’s just paperwork. It’s nearish to downtown, a long walk to my work, and reasonable for wherever Cory finds a job. That took a lot of stress off this weekend, and we’ve just been relaxing and celebrating Cory’s 29th birthday. I’ve been keeping a journal and when we get a chance I’ll type up some of the entries and add them here.

Tomorrow’s my first day of work, wish me luck.

    all the best to both of you! can’t wait for you to re-surface more regularly… though transition time for establishing your lives in a new place is expected. once you’ve got everything sorted, i would like your snail mail contact details.

    happy b-day and happy first day, thinking of you…

    Welcome to this side of the Atlantic! If there is anything you need, just give us a shout. Though be prepared to wait a day or two if you need it posted. We may be on the same (small) island, but navigating it can be a chore.

    And remember if you are ever down this way, I will be most offended if you don’t stop by.
