Ok, I can't contain my excitement any longer. I have spun this one out too long, so long in fact that I think people probably already know (my family and close friends) or they just don't care, or are too busy getting on with their own lives and want just to spit it out. So here it is.
I am going to Texas.
I am going to live with Blest and be her au pair\nanny\mother's help (whatever you want to call it. I tend to go for the term au pair since that's the term that's most useful when googling to find out information about visas and all those sort of things).
We are both very excited :-)
It started with Blest and her Mum (I suppose that should be Mom) having a conversation, continued with Blest sending me an email about a 'wild and wacky idea' and all sort of went from there. We haven't got the dates and stuff finalised yet, but it's looking like it's going to be November time. In the meanwhile I've got several weddings and birthday parties to attend, as well as doing some visiting to see people that I won't see for a while, as well as, of course, the sorting of visa and flights and packing and everything. Since my sentences seem to be running on some what I think it's time to stop typing while you still have breath to read, but as you might be able to tell I'm a little excited about it :-)
