I got your letter and I nearly had a heart attack when I got to the "oh and I'm moving abroad for three years" bit. *snuggles you and demands to be kept updated on your comings and goings* Otherwise, who is going to come with me to silly occult action movies? :D
Sounds like you'll have an interesting job while there, and I always figure spending a long time away doing something interesting is far better than spending a short time here doing something dull.
I'll still miss you though. *sniffles and stocks up on more European stamps*
Is this a posting abroad with work then? You could get sent somewhere really interesting...When I was but a nipper and cable and wireless still operated in a traditional british empire manner our family ended up going to lots of countries as my father was 'posted' out for longer periods for work. It's a pity I can't remember more of Singapore.
Yeah it's with work. Sounds like I'm doing similar stuff... except a lot of the comms I'll be doing is mobile, entire trunk networks on the back of lorries and stuff like that. Exciting, fast, difficult... and I also get to weld, fix, rewire and maintain all the electrics!
I've alluded to it previously on my journal but I don't like talking much about work... that's why I always end up talking about pseudo-work social events and fitness things! Interspersed with my occasional links to theology & sociology etc.
