I'm sorry, gentle readers, have you missed me? To be honest, I've kind of missed myself - the past few weeks have been so crazy that I feel like I have been a bit lost! Relocating to a foreign country when you're already in a foreign country, having also gone there from another foreign country - well, it's no picnic, my pretties. I'm sorry I haven't been able to post, but now I have a zillion things to tell you about - thoughts on serendipity, the insane amount of work it is to close down your life in Paris, my first impressions of life here in Saudi Arabia, and much, much more. BUT - I know, I know, there's always a but - the problem is that my home internet access here hasn't been set up yet, so I am writing to you from the terrace at my local library, basking in the balmy 25C temperature at 9pm, and admiring the amazing crescent moon in the sky. Which is all great, except that my laptop battery is about to die and I simply won't have time to write anything else right now. But I shall return shortly, my pretties, and start posting more regularly...promise!!!
