I JUST RESIGNED FROM MY JOB!!!

Ok, deep breath................I was soo nervous my tummy has been in shreds.

Short version of the story is that we are moving from Dublin and bought a house in Gorey, a country town about 55 miles from the city. The house is in the process of being built and will be ready in September.

I saw a job online in a town 25 miles from there, applied, had two interviews and got a job offer...so I just resigned. My boss was really nice but sad, as were a lot of my colleagues as I really got on well with a lot of them.

This is a quality of life move as opposed to a career move etc. I am really excited but nervous about all the changes too. I will probably be staying with my parents or my cousin for about a month until the house is ready and P will be in Dublin.

I've been keeping quiet on this news all along as I was so nervous that my work colleagues would find out.

So relieved to have it all out in the open now!

...P will commute initially but will start looking at other options too

There is tons of room, is a 4bedroom house, so much bigger than our house in Dublin!

The idea of living in a country town is SOOO appealing to me these days. I'm sure you'll love it. And what better reason to change than to improve quality of life?

Im so happy for you thats great....is this part of turning 30 and wanting to retire to a quiet place in the country where you can grow old??? hehe...only kidding...but me suspects perhaps you and padhraig are planning this to be a family home for when we hear the pitter patter of baby fox's feet????

By the way...just got ur email...Im so upset cos I just typed the longest email of my life explaining everything...literally step by step...and it was very therapeutic...and then it went and deleted itself on me...Im gutted..it completely took all my energy to write that too..Im gona have to have a break before I even attempt to re write it....but you will get it soon.

Well it's still in a housing estate in a town and it won't be the house that we grow old in, but it's closer to it than our current house is. Nat and Nelly can confirm the tiny-ness of my house in Dublin!

Less of the slagging about the fox cubs ok? (for those of you who don't know my husband's surname is Fox)

That's awful about your mail. Send it to my work and home mails whenever you have the energy to rewrite. My home gmail is sinead.<insert my surname>.gmail.com

I am off out after work (still at my desk) so might not get to log on later, so try to send it to my work mail too so that I will see it tomorrow and will have time to reply...what are they going to do...FIRE me?

Congrats Sinead!!

wow.. those were a lot of big secrets to keep! Although.. didn't you just finish your current house to your liking? Although I'm sure this one will be just as nice. Post pics if you have any.

Congrats on the BIG MOVE, the new house and new job. Have you sold your current house yet?

I'm glad that you decided to share all that good news with us! I bet you'll love having a bigger house - though didn't you just finish renovating the one now?

Congrats on the job too! Is it in the same line of work or something a bit different?

You'll have to post of some pics of the new house some time and good luck with the new job! How soon do you start?
