Hoo-boy! So things are spiralling rapidly towards the future! But let's back up, and track how it's come to this point.

  1. I decided I wanted to be a freelance writer.

  2. I put out my CV into the world.

  3. I received a job offer as a contracted writer in the education sector, which I had to turn down because of the hella long notice period required of teachers.

  4. I handed in my notice.

  5. I thought, off-hand, about looking for teaching jobs abroad.

  6. I looked at teaching jobs abroad.

  7. I applied for a bunch (literally, like, 100).

  8. I signed up for 10 agencies.

  9. I was offered two jobs, and rejected both as unsuitable.

  10. I signed up for one more agency.

  11. I got a job in Fujairah, that starts in August.

And that's where it's at! Wow! School ends here next Friday, and I fly out on 19th August. I'll be down in London tomorrow sorting out some paperwork. It's kind of crazy that 4 months ago I was all gung-ho about leaving teaching entirely. Not anymore, it seems.

Also, my family are looking to move to the Orkneys in 3 years' time, so there's that to look forward to as well.

All aboard the Emirates Express!
