Happy Thursday, y’all! I’ve been sitting on some good news and I’m delighted I have the official go-ahead to share it.
Sara is relocating to Bristol, UK! She’s transferring with Epic (the same company she’s been with since she graduated college) in August. The Epic office is a couple hundred employees strong (including a few folks from Madison who joined the company back when Sara did) and she’s really excited to be part of it.
And I am really excited she’s asked me to help her settle in! Delta flies to Bristol via Amsterdam, and we are meeting there early on August 6 (our flights both land at 5:55 am). Then we’ll fly to Bristol together “later” that morning – our flight lands at 8:40 am. She picks up her apartment keys (hopefully) later that morning.
Now that my flights are booked and Sara has the apartment, my mind is moving on to other important things … like packing! The weather in Bristol looks like a most refreshing change from summer
Did you immediately think that I NEED to finish Whippet? I did 😉
and I’m so happy the sweater is now in a stage where I can knit it anywhere! I don’t leave until August 5, and I’m pretty confident I’ll finish with plenty of time to spare (oh my, knock on wood!). I also thought that I need to be sure I have enough wrinkle-free outfits to last a few days. Sara’s apartment has a washer-dryer, but I’m not sure there’s an iron.
No matter what, I’m flattered that Sara asked me to come along. and grateful Marc helped with my travel arrangements … and will take excellent care of Holly while I’m gone!
