My BFF (yes, how highschool, but that's how I roll) here in Hampstead, moved back to the US the day before I got back. I spent a lot of time with her and now she's gone. My daughter keeps asking for her kids, etc. It's disappointing. I had two other people I was just getting to know well leave. It stinks, but that's the life of an ex-pat.
My women's club is hosting the annual kick-off meeting soon and I will be there scoping the new recruits. Cate starts a new school and I will be there checking out the other parents and signing up for PTA (maybe - remember my new mindset of not being supermom - it may be flying out the window already). And then there are all the events coming up that I will be attending - probably alone as Fen is traveling most of the Autumn.
This means new people to meet. New playdates to be had. New drinking/shopping/tea/lunch buddies. I like it. I'm social and I love meeting new people. So I say, bring on the Autumn. I ready to get out and have fun.
