Silver Linings

What do you do when your husband comes home and tells you... " Sweetie, the branch is closing and I'm going to be made redundant"? I pack my bags and head for New Zealand of course. :-) Every cloud has a silver lining.
Many of you know that this was the plan anyway, probably sometime in the next few years, but this has made the decision for us. At the moment all we know is 'not later than the end of next year' but hopefully there will be another announcement soon and we can make a start on our planning. I'm excited, and nervous and happy and..... oh so many emotions going on.

I have been busy crafting, but not enough to boast about, so here's a picture of last nights beautiful moonrise. I wouldn't have noticed it if the furniture shop next door but one hadn't been on fire!!
 I was busy watching firemen running up and down the back lane when I happened to look further afield, fortunately the fire was out by then, and all the smoke was gone.

I suppose it is a case of silver linings on two fronts - moving to NZ and seeing the silvery moon when you didn't expect to.

Well that sounds exciting, and scary in about equal amounts. I hope you hear more soon so you can start planning, uncertainty about such a huge thing would be awful I think.
