Chilli Con Carne

いよいよシンガポールを発つ日が近づいてきました、あと1ヶ月ちょっと。日本から香港、香港から日本への移動は社内の転勤だったので特別大変ではなかったのですが、今回は夫が退職して、結婚して以来初めてイギリスにすむので何かと大変です。ビザをとり、家探しをし、家を売って買ってをほぼ同時。今住んでいるところより狭くなるので荷物の仕分けも大変です。次から次へと決めなくてはいけないこと、しなくてはいけないことが続いて、わたしも夫もややバテ気味。必要な書類も山のようにあり、それに目を通したり書類を揃えたりという作業が次々とあり、すべて夫がしなくてはいけないので本当に大変そう。手伝ってあげたいけれどわたしでは役不足。これに比べると、転勤でのお引越しは楽でした。イギリスに行ってからもまだまだ色々あるので、しばらくは心身ともにストレスまみれです。

The time for us to leave Singapore is getting closer, a little more than a month now. When we moved from Japan to Hong Kong, from Hong Kong to Singapore, it wasn’t so bad because my husband’s company took care of most of it, but it’s very different this time. There have been so much to decide, consider and do, we are both feeling exhausted, My husband is going to retire and we are going to live in England for the first time since we got married. I needed to get UK Visa, we needed to find a house in a few days, sell our property and buy the house all at the same time. We are down-sizing so we’ll have to decide what to take and what not to etc, etc. There have been so many documents to collect, read and sign for my husband, unfortunately they have to be done by my husband so I’m not able to help him much. Moving for a job was so much easier! There will be a lot to handle even after we leave here, we have been stressed out in the last six months or so and I expect it’ll be stressful for a while longer.

さて、「しばらくチリ・コンカーニを食べてないよね。」ということで、今日の夕食はチリになりました。調べて見たら1ヶ月ほど前に食べてましたけど(笑)。

We talked on the weekend that we haven’t had Chilli Con Carne for a while, so that’s what I cooked for dinner today. When I checked in my blog, we did have it only a month ago, though.
