18th-20th June Post Comment Love and being back home

Welcome back to this weeks Post Comment Love with Stephanie and I.

For those of you who link up on a regular basis, I'm hoping you'll notice a lot more calm in my life now we're back in the UK full time. However those of you who are new will possibly think who is this manic person?

We finished our Government Quarantine Hotel Stay at midnight on Sunday. The taxi collected us 15 mins later and took us home to Malvern.

That's it, we're no longer expats. Do we have a name now to describe us? Repats? 

Apparently repatriation is the hardest part of an expat journey, but not for us, not me anyway. We've planned this, we had an end date in mind, the plan went better than expected and Peter was able to retire 2 years earlier than anticipated without the need for me to return to work, although I may choose to work in the future.

For now though, it's time for family and friends and sorting out our family home. Although I spent most of lockdown working on it, all I've done is get it back to a state where Peter can turn it into our home. When we left it was a home for a family of 7, for 10 years it's been rented out and neglected, now we can repurpose it to suit our needs for the future. 

I love reading about other people's lives and what they get up to around the world, so feel free to link up with any blog post you've written this week and we hope to see you back again soon.

  1. I've enjoyed reading about your journey home Suzanne. It seems like an age ago that it began. Enjoy some time with family and settling back into the home. xx

  2. I am so glad that you have made it home and are settling into what life brings next! I have only just started following your journey and I didn't think you were manic at all. I thought, wow, she is really handling this way better than I would! Thanks for hosting the link party! Have a lovely weekend.
