This place is wrecking my head

moving Its time to start over.  Again.

As the title states, this place is wrecking y head. So I think a change is in order. A new place, a new bed, a new city, a new local coffee shop, everything new.  I have moved so many times before that people pay no attention when I say those words “I’m moving”.  But this time is different. Yes I am moving on.

There comes a time in your life when you think, ‘oh my God Is this it”? your kids are in college and while they still need you, its only at a distance.

  • 1)They need you for advice which you can do from anywhere in the world thanks to social media and Skype.
  • 2)They need you for money, which you can do from anywhere in the world in seconds thanks to my banking app.

God forbid my child should ever needs money and wifi goes down for an extended period.  We would be truly screwed.   It boils down to the realistic fact that if I am really organised and have a cleaner once a month to keep the house in order, someone to do his ironing which incidentally I never did anyway, heat and pay the bills until he is finished college, that he does not need me sitting in a house staring at four walls aging and waiting for death basically.  because that is the truth of it, what are we waiting for ? we grow up, get a job, get married (I didn’t), have kids, become grandparents, retire, gone on one holiday a year, grow old and die………………………..

Moving on

So the decision has been made to emigrate and leave him here alone.   Who knows how it will turn out??? watch this space.  One thing I do know, I will never call Ireland home again.

[…] I did what most expatriates do at some time, I moved home.  Back to where I had family and roots, small town Ireland.  I also did what a lot of ex pats do, I realized that I have nothing here and that I have no reason to be here and that I actually don’t know where I belong.  I do know that I am only truly happy on the road and the people who understand me most are other ex-pats.  People for whom travel is in their blood and who like me will probably never settle down in one place forever as the lure of a new adventure is what keeps them alive and interested in life itself.
