My boyfriend Siffi moved there three weeks ago and in four days me and our daughter are following him there. The last few days have been all about packing and saying good-byes. My last day at work will be tomorrow morning and that will be my last day at work for some time. In Japan I plan to be a stay-at-home mother and enjoy spending time with my daughter, Margret.
It is not easy to pack up your life to move across the world with a two-year old in tow. She is not a fan of these changes and does not like the suitcases that are piling up in our room. I say our room because right now we are living with my in-laws in one room and have some stuff all over the house. Every time I think I have demolished every pile of "stuff" around the house I find some more. The never ending task.
But soon packing will be over, the good-byes will be said and we will be heading for Japan.
