Tropical Penpals blog isn’t going anywhere soon. What has happened in my spare time is I have begun cleaning up articles which I think are out of date and now irrelevant. We posted things like rugby games in Cebu but with things going back as far as 2007 we have over 5,000 articles. I am hoping to simply filter out the stuff we don’t want anymore and leave a much leaner blog site.
This isn’t the end though its simply a transition period of too much going on to talk as much as I would like. I am currently in the UK and preparing for the big move of the family to Europe. Business is still ticking over but until the move is done I am preoccupied until everyone is in the new home. But there is still plenty going on in the Philippines such as the windows going in as you may have noticed.
The upper floor of the new building we are still deciding to make it a school or a three bedroom apartment. The store is still ticking over and even there we have dropped a window in to cut down on road dust. As you may have guessed already this isn’t an abandonment of the Philippines but simply a timeout. By next year Spain will be settled and things will continue to develop in the Philippines as its our main home.
What I care most about is family and although still in good health and a young 40 year old I am aware the kids are hitting school year this year and as such the move has to happen. As the future is not based on what I want for myself but being able to rest easier knowing whatever happens my wife and kids are safe and have a future.
Family pretty much means everything to me and I am happy that this year I have had time to make the changes to make everything happen and along the way had time with my daughter in the UK. As simply that is life for me knowing that my family are content.
