Hello. Sorry for being so terribly bad at updating this blog the last few months. We have a good reason. It’s a long explanation though so bear with me.
After Kalden was born in Korea, we flew with him back to Dubai. I was then given an offer on a job in Singapore, which I took. We then had to move out of our apartment and into a hotel for a month in Dubai while we arranged the details of the move. After selling all our stuff and putting the rest on a boat to Asia, we then flew to Singapore for a brief visit and then continued on to Korea. We stayed in Korea for a week and then took off to Canada for an extended visit with family. We stayed in Sudbury at my Aunt and Uncle’s lake house and then at my Dad’s place in Ottawa. From there we went to Toronto for a few days before heading back to Korea. Rory stayed back in Korea while I went to Singapore to start the new job. Rory followed a week later and we stayed once again in a serviced apartment. We looked for houses, bought furniture, worked hard and managed a few nights out as well.
Tomorrow we move into our new place!
This will be the first time in 6 months that we will be settled and hopefully won’t move again for many years. Through the whole nonsense, Kalden’s been amazing (and Rory too for that matter). I’m so lucky to have such a wonderful and flexible family who are willing to move around the world for me.
So here we are in Singapore. A new job, new son, new city, new part of the world and new beginning. We’ll be going to Korea much more now (for work and family) and being in Asia, will have a lot more exposure to Korean culture and people. I hope that I’ll be able to keep this blog going and provide a lot more interesting insight into our family, into Korea and into our new experiences abroad.
Thanks for sticking through it all.
Sincerely, Jamie, Rory and Kalden
