After much debate and deliberation (mildly put), my husband has agreed to be transferred from our comfortable, happy life in New York to the unknown wilds of London, England. We've been there, have friends there but we really don't have a clue what it's going to be like. Will we love it? Hate it? Regret it? Survive it?
Surely, New York is a tough town, to quote Frank Sinatra: If you can make it here.... well, you know the rest. But London is a completely different kettle of fish (and chips).
Right now the contracts are being negotiated but once that happens we have quite a road ahead of us. First we have to have a baby in the next 2 months - our second - a boy (we have a girl), then we must pack up everything we own, get a new passport for the yet-to-be-named son, fly to London, find a place to live, find a nanny (if we can afford one), unpack and try to acclimate. In the meantime we have Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's, my husband Fen's birthday, my birthday, and most likely a goodbye party. And I'm to handle most of this while breastfeeding. Thank God I'm a type A personality!!!
It's going to be hard, but we're up for it. Stay tuned...
