Yes it’s true. We’re moving back to the bright-lights-big-city of Singapore in June. The Irishman has accepted a pretty exciting opportunity and I’ll be starting up a business as well (more on that to come), so it’s going to be a great adventure for us.
That video above is Finn’s favourite youtube clip, a time-lapse of the Singapore lights. He used to watch this over and over again when we first moved to Australia and reminisce with baby nostalgia about his rides on the MRT, the vast highways and “oh! the tower cranes!”
It always used to make me misty-eyed at how strong a connection he seemed to have with his birthplace and when we told him the news, his eyes lit up with visions of the glowing metropolis of his childhood, but his first question was “Mama, can we keep the Australia farmhouse too?”
Well we are. So right now, I’m up to my ears in Logistics with a capital L. New schools, organising documents, spring-cleaning mounds and mounds of detritus, figuring out how to keep a 10 acre farm/vineyard going, organising renovation works for the house, while the Irishman has been on the phone all morning taking calls from friends, new colleagues and the press, and dare I say, basking a bit in all of the attention!
It’s all a bit crazy over here so I’m going to leave you with the press release – in the Irishman’s words, it’s good to be back.
