I said to Pat over the weekend "I need something to do!" I was referring to preparation for the move; I am antsy. I suppose this waiting for things to happen is character-building, developing or improving patience... The positive side is, because so much preparation is already complete and we have limited our current obligations, I have more time to watch movies, play guitar, train, etc. Woo-hoo! Good mental health activities.
Anyway... We await communication regarding an interview for the job in Aberdeen. There was an internal applicant and they get priority for interviews, so there has been a further delay for Pat. We expect to hear something any day.
I recently had a quick look into fitness and wellness employment opportunities for me--just being curious, since I do not expect to work initially. I found Nuffield Health in Aberdeen. As I lay in bed this morning, I remembered that they also employ physiotherapists. I had a quick look and found a listing for a full-time PT. Pat will have a look and consider applying for this as well.
This is our current favorite. Great location: less than a half mile from Union Street (and the nearest Starbucks). We have also been shopping for home furnishings, getting ideas of costs and styles. If everything goes according to our current plan, we have good ideas for decorating this flat.
Anyway, we continue to wait to pull the trigger on my visa paperwork and application and the final, big clean up. Watch this space...
