Well – The move from Singapore is being planned. Our home has been evaluated. Buyers coming in to peep. We haven’t got someone to sign a deal yet. J’s gotta join his new company by June mid – before which we plan to spend enough and more time with family back in India.
We are moving to Cambridge, United Kingdom.
Spending time with family back in India means we will have to wind things up in Singapore by mid may. That involves – Both our job resignations and wind ups, house/car being sold, Belongings sorted , packed and shipped – Cots and Cupboards inclusive, M’s child care’s notice period and spending time with friends here before winding up Singapore for now.
My job leaving plans were being discussed with my manager G for quiet sometime now. Ms.G was requesting me to spend as much time as possible at work such that she can get a replacement for me and that replacement could be well trained in order to avoid any hiccups. Ms G has been really good to me and I found it difficult to reject her request. So the date of my last working day has been toggling back and forth in my mind. I wanted to spend enough time at home – settling and sorting too.
More so – this home has been very special for me. I walked in here 4 years ago with M being 4 Months old. This home of ours has seen our good and bad enough. J and I have fought a maximum possible in this home, M has thrown enough tantrums, We’d taken enough vacations from this home, Ample guests…Oh..my home deserves a separate post !
Well – getting back to the decision of my last working day – I speculated and speculated until GOD decided enough is enough and now and that HE shall step in to decide when the last working day should be. Beyond the control of my manager or my company – The client I was working for..ohh just say the name – EPSON decided to back off it’s contract with my company. There goes !
Of course, It doesn’t mean we are laid off – It just means that we have ample other opportunities at hand. EPSON wants us to join them directly as we are in and out familiar with their printers and projectors. My company has other projects running and they’d request us to join any of them – as a relocation.
At this juncture of movement – for me it serves a GOD made – Well planned decision , though unexpected (GOD reveals most plans unexpectedly though :)). It truly does not make sense for me to join EPSON or to join in any other projects offered by my organisation as I very well know that my tenure in Singapore is going to last me not more than 2 months. So, as of March 31st 2013 – I decide to get full time into the role of being a housewife and a mother exclusively ! But of course I shall be J’s personal secretary taking care of his moving plans and moving bag and baggage with him 🙂
