    Thanks! Speaking of being "back" it's strange to be back to my life here in general too. Since things aborad are off of the cards for a while I really need to make some constructive plans for what I'll be doing for the rest of this year haha.

    Like I said...busy busy busy haha. But it's slowing down somewhat now although I'd rather keep up the pace if I'm honest! Hate having nothing to do.

    Yes preparing to move. There's a few things I need to sort out before I do, and I have to work a lot of overtime just before I leave too. Where Ii'm moving to is kind of a hard question because I'm going back to England but only for 3 months so I'm not sure if that counts haha.

    Where are you off to?

    Generally fine. Just moving stresses, was in Hong Kong last week so now I know the next time I leave China (in a month) that's the last time I'll cross that border. It's going to feel amazing and freeing haha.

    How about you?

    Thank you <3

    Yes I can comfortably say I can cherish the time we had and that I don't have regrets about not spending more time together because we did spend a lot of time together, and even though I've been living here for so long we still always spoke a lot. (Second mother to me basically)

    Actually I went back the exact same time the year before for the exact same reason, my other grandma. Life can be very strange, can't it? But when that happened last year it really made me rethink my priorities in life and that was a big part of why I chose to go back in February to visit, because of realising more that life does always have unexpected turns around the corner. I think I'd be in a darker place right now if I didn't rethink things and go back in February while, as far as we knew, there was nothing seriously wrong and I could just blissfully enjoy family time.

    Don't worry about it - I asked!
    I'm glad your job was flexible about it, but geez. I'm so sorry to hear that. My condolences, friend. Yeah, when you get back in August that'll be... a weird adjustment.
    I hope you're able to cherish the memories & time y'all had together.

    I'm doing alright but others in my family aren't doing so well. I don't mind sharing what it is, my grandma recently died. It's quite a shock to be honest because this time last year we would have all said she'd be here for at least another 10 years...but life has its surprises doesn't it. It's my grandad I'm really worried about because my grandma was his whole world. I just want to leave and spend a decent chunk of time with my family. 8 weeks left and I can do that. I can't be annoyed with my situation though, my work have been so good, time off was not a problem at all and they didn't even dock my wages for the time I took off which I would have completely understood if they did so I'm more than happy to finish my my contract for them because they've been so good to me in general over the years anyway.

    I think when I go back myself it's going to feel real then. Like I understand from a logical standpoint that she is not here anymore. But as I live on the other side of the world I don't get the chance to notice it in the way the rest of my family does. Although I did speak to her like every week since we've always been close. When I was over too I was very focused on holding it together for others and helping out as much as I could for the funeral arrangements etc. In August I'll be back and she...won't be there. It's going to be very...I don't know, but it's going to be something.

    Sorry for this sudden unloading but you did ask haha.
