I have this urgent feeling of needing to blog about something, but I can't quite find what it is. So I am writing this half-assed post in the hope that I find it.
Things are quiet at the moment. Quiet is very good. Not quiet in the sense of builders not drilling in my ear every single day (until December, preserve my fragile soul. I think they are drilling a causeway to Australia right there in our cold room. That is my only explanation for how it can go on day after day), but quiet on the life falling on my head front.
I scanned the jobs in Cape Town the other day. I do this sometimes when it starts to get cold and dark here. I look for jobs for the BFG, not for me, because I don't mind too much what I do, but he has an awesome job, and it would take something awesome to get him to leave it. No such luck. In fact, as a friend pointed out, the only way we could find that kind of work in Cape Town is if we took it there ourselves. I don't know if this is true but I suspect it is and that is pretty depressing cos both the BFG and I are little lemming-sheep. We are no entrepeneurs. We need to work for someone. Sad but true.
But my heart will not let me give up just yet. Countries that have the right kind of work include Korea, the US, India, Japan and obviously here. There are options out there in the world if you know where to look. So why do I keep looking in Cape Town? I'm like the girl who couldn't let go.
I am planning my holiday to South Africa for January. I can't wait. It will be hothothot. I want to drive across the country and stop at places like Bethlehem and count the PEP stores along the way. Amongst other things of course.
Yip, I am the girl who couldn't let go. Should I be ashamed of this?
