Time flies

24 Sep

6 weeks ago today I found out that I was moving to Zurich with work. 6 weeks until the move date seemed like a long time and it felt as if I had all the time in the world to sort out my life here in England before moving out to Switzerland and start a brand new adventure.

It feels like I have barely had enough time to sort out cancelling my car insurance and mobile phone let alone having a chance to say goodbye to all my friends. It has been fraught but, two days before my one-way flight over there, I feel surprisingly calm about things or maybe it’s a bit more accurate to say that I’m a bit like a swan; all calm and elegant on the surface but below the surface I’m kicking like my life depended on it.

Lots of people have told me how brave I am for moving out there not really knowing anyone and having to start afresh completely on my own but nothing ventured, nothing gained as someone once said to me. What is the worst that could happen? I can just move back if things don’t work out as I planned it or things just don’t feel right. To be honest I don’t think this is likely to happen. I think the worst that will happen is that I’ll eat so much cheese and chocolate that I can’t fit in my plane seat on the way back home to spent Christmas with my family. I’m really going to have to make sure I don’t go mad like a kid in a sweet shop.

So now all my belongings have been packed up and shipped off and I am literally sat here writing this in the only outfit that is not packed away, I’m just counting down the minutes until I get to the airport and my big adventure begins. Wish me luck!
