Hi there in French, just a short note to let you know that all is well with us. We have a few busy months ahead of us now, and I do try to keep track of everything that needs to get done before I move to Stockholm on 1 May. I am writing lists like never before, and also jotting down different appointments and dates in the family calendar on the fridge door. Some things are still open, we know that the boys will follow after the school is out on 7 July whereas it is still open when Dear Hubby will follow.

Still house-hunting in Stockholm – and I have no clue what I am getting myself into… In the end we might not rent anything before I am all settled in, or at least on location. I am so fortunate to have got offers to stay with two good friends, so at least I will not have to look for a first dwelling. I can thus put all efforts into finding a house for the family instead. 🙂 Thank you M – and K – for your kind offers.

It feels like life is full of making plans right now. At work I have been asked to take courses that will help me in my new position in Stockholm, and due to the great variety of tasks that I will be doing there,  the spread of courses I will attend in the near future is great, for instance Public Speaking, Writing for the Web, Social Media, Financial Files… And believe me it is like a new start, a real kickoff to something new, I can hardly wait! 🙂

At home we are also busy getting things done not only around the house but also different medical visits. We have seen two roof-layers, the water-filter guy and others. We will also be seeing our dentist, ophthalmologist and other specialists before moving… Then there are the boys birthday-parties that need to be planned plenty of time ahead taking into account what weekends I will be flying in from Stockholm since I will be commuting between Brussels and Stockholm during my two first months on the new job.

We are also trying to keep somewhat of a social agenda, but are not doing so great in that department yet. Hopefully we will improve a lot in order to see so many of our friends here as possible before we leave…

Last but not least we are planning our overseas trip during the Easter holidays; a trip to see loved ones over there. New York and the South is on the travel agenda. And I also try to plan ahead for receiving American family in Åland this summer, so yes I can testify to life not being boring – at all. But rest assured, this all makes me happy, happy, happy! 🙂
