So we booked our flight tickets just a couple of days ago. Still waiting on hearing back from IAG Cargo, the company that’s in charge of taking pets on British Airway’s planes, but the rest is all in place or needs to get done just a few days before our flight. So much work still left to do, but at least we’ve got a huge amount of it done so far.
We’ll be flying out on May 11 if all goes well. It will be so nice to finally set foot in Heathrow after all this time waiting. In total, Thomas will have spent 5 years and 3 months here in Canada with me, and we’ll be leaving only a few days after our 5th wedding anniversary (on May 7th).
Because we’re moving, I’ve fallen behind on posting for pretty much everything, so I’m getting that whole guilt over not posting enough feeling that I’ve talked about before. I really want to catch up on all the forum posts I’ve missed out on with regards to Survival Threads, want to get back into a rhythm of writing posts for More Than Just Surviving (I have so many articles drafted that I just need to sit and work on, but haven’t had the time or brain capacity at all!), and really need to work on Survival Shelf in terms of digging for some great content I can feature. So much to do and no time to do it makes me really frustrated at myself for not being able to juggle all these different things at once, but hey, I should’ve expected this – not that it does much for the guilty feeling nagging at the back of my mind.
The only thing I can do is reassure myself that once we have gotten to the U.K. and settled in that we’ll be able to go full force and just get straight into the normal posting schedule we had. It’s one of my favourite things about blogging – how you can go from being really busy and not posting much of anything at all to one or two good weeks of consistent posting again and you’re back into the groove of things, just like that. It’s nice to have a rhythm, and since I’m spending my extra time now brainstorming new topics to write about, when I do have time to flush out the posts, it should be a lot easier since I did all the headway on brainstorming now.
Posting on here is about the only part of the job that’s easy. Talking about your life is infinitely less work than researching and writing about topics the way we do on our survival sites. That being said, both types of writing are rewarding in their own way. Always going to be so proud of what we’ve managed to achieve with More Than Just Surviving.
