MIA for half a year!

First - a big apology for being missing in action for more than half a year! Life has taken an unexpected turn. The family has been moved back to the UK due to my husband's work. Boy, has it been a hectic few months!! Since we had gotten the news back in last September, it had been a whirlwind of a time. Moving, dealing with so many things had taken me away from my blog. Furthermore, now that I am back in the UK, the title of my blog is  irrelevant? Should I keep it? Changed it? Maybe put " No more" at the back of the title to signify that I'm no longer stuck in Singapore?? Anyway, that all aside, I'm back and settled ....sort of. Hopefully, the worst is over, and now I will have more time to dedicate to writing about my travels again and life back in this side of the world?

Okay, let's do a short summary first. It would explain why I didn't have time to blog. It's been so crazy.
September 2012 - News broke that we were moving back to the UK.
September 2012 - Trip back to UK to do house hunting. We sold our UK house a year back, and so we needed a place as finding a rental for my whole gang of furries = impossible.
October 2012 - Did a trip to South Island in New Zealand since it would be really too far to travel from the UK.

October 2012 - Another trip back to UK, as previous trip was a failure as we didn't find a house to buy.
November 2012 - Did several trips to Malaysia - Malacca, Kuala Lumpur & Penang before leaving Singapore. (Why? 3 years in Singapore and we barely visited Malaysia. The usual - procastination, thought one had more time and then we didn't. So in a mad rush, we decided to do a few keys places in Malaysia)

January 2013 - Third trip back to the UK - another househunting trip as the previous two did not yield any results. Husband stayed on and started work in the UK
March 2013 - The big move. The rest of the family including furries embarked on our move back to the UK. We spent almost 2 months in a holiday rental while waiting for our house to be finished before moving in.
May 2013 - Finally we moved into our house. Chaos as we had not broadband and thus no blogging, no nothing!!! Tom, my cat had also been diagnosed with Squamous cell cancer of his nose. So after many trips to the vets, he ended up with a nosectomy etc etc.

June 2013 - Off on our holiday which we booked last year - our 2nd Alaska Cruise. This time it was a Northbound cruise. My parents joined us on this trip, so we did the Canadian Rockies again, followed by the cruise and we took them to Las Vegas. Almost a repetition of 2012 trip!

July 2013 - Finally all the madness is over, I can breathe again.

Now that I've explained myself, I feel better. I can't believe that we have moved 4 times across 3 countries in 4 years. However, during this 4 years, I've done so much of travelling and seen more of the world, that I don't regret a moment of it. It's been stressful but exciting. I've reconnected with old friends and made great new friends. Now I'm starting another new chapter of my life, I am both apprehensive and excited. Where my life will lead to, I have no idea. Let's just follow me on this new journey :) Thanks for your patience and please continue to support my blog.

We are back!!!
