Gozo no go

For the last few months I’ve shared with others our plans (and excitement) of moving to Gozo. It’s a place we love and visit on holiday every year. The idea was to sell our house, move there for six months and then decide where to go after that.

Although we were all set to leave at half-term, it looks like it’s not going to be possible in the short-term. We’re still going to move house next week, but we’ll be staying and renting in the UK. To cut a long story short, various laws and audit practices meant I wouldn’t have been able to remain in my current role at Mozilla.

Many thanks to those who wished us well. It’s certainly taught me a thing or two about counting one’s chickens before they’re hatched.

      Thanks Jade! We’re cutting it fine, but it should all be OK (I hope!)

    Oh no.. You must all be so disappointed. Hoping you can resolve and this is a postponement of your family’s plans.

      Thanks Sue. I’m sure it’ll be possible further down the line!
