We are going!
« on: May 26, 2008, 09:48:02 am »
With everything going on in the country my OH has decided that he is NOT leaving his family alone here under any circumstances.  Our area has been put on high alert as we have a Township a stones throw away.  So we have made the decision to go over - IN AUGUST!!!!  All of a sudden it's upon us.  Now to book tickets etc.  We have hardly any money and I am really scared but we will make it!  O0   OH had a couple of very good emails from various employment agencies who said that they will set up interviews for him as they now know when he will be in the country and because he is staying and not coming back to SA they've told him his chances are very good.  He is in IT and they said there is good opportunities available.  Please wish us luck.  This is happening much sooner than we thought!  Excited, scared, having a nervous breakdown, going grazy  :idiot2:  Please also pray that the finances fall into place!

I think we are also going in the same direction. I am also just waiting for my house to sell then I am out of here. I am also in IT and was told that if I get myself over there I should be able to find something fairly quikly.

Congrats Jackie! We are also leaving in August... and its approaching fast!

My friend works for PWC and she does Linux there (not sure what exactly) but perhaps also contact them and see if they need anyone in your hubby's line.  Always worth a shot.
