For those of you who know me personally, or have been reading my blog for a while, you will know that we used to live in Saudi Arabia. We have lived there twice – the first time for a year, and the second time for 2 1/2 years. We’ve been back in Australia for 3 1/2 years now, and had our fun on our little farm, quite a different place than the endless sand dunes of Arabia!
Those of us from other countries who go and live in Saudi Arabia call it the Magic Kingdom… because there is something that draws you back, time and time again…..
This week we heard that we are going back for the third time 🙂 Cameron applied for a job in January, and it has taken all this time to get it sorted out…. We are all pretty excited about going back. It will be good to see old friends, although we will miss the ones we have made here.
It is going to mean another international move… which of course we are not looking forward to. But we know what we are in for at least, having done it twice. Cameron will be heading off in a month or so, and we will follow by the end of the year I hope.
Saudi was where I learned how to quilt, and many of my quilting buddies are there still, so it will be wonderful to see them again and spend some sewing days together. All my fabric will come with me of course 🙂 And I am glad I have collected lots of Australian magazines to take to share with people there.
So….. the next chapter of our lives has begun…. Today we sold our piano….. and I am looking around the house at things that will stay and things that will go…. I can’t do any lifting or packing yet, but I am at least making plans. A new adventure awaits…. and I will take you all with me through this blog 🙂
