Christmas was good. It helped the Elijah and Han settle back, especially school with the nativity, and special Christmas events. We had a big fall of snow the kids made snowmen in the garden and snowball fights in the street.
They are making friends and beginning to seem at home here. Our fear is that a possible change in jobs means changing house and school. But we'll have to deal with that if it happens.
Eileen and I are still waiting for permanent jobs. I had an interview last week for a Countryside manager, but there were 37 people interviewed, my chances are slim at best. I have offers of 2 part time posts – with SAMS and a church. This week will clearly show direction for me – I think it's becoming clear God wants me to stay in Christian work. Eileen saw some fantastic jobs in the paper yesterday – 20 posts for primary Spanish peripatetic teachers. So she is going to apply, and is excited about the possibilities. After permanent work comes buying a house.
So the next few weeks will decide our future. Watch this space.
