much drama here, yoghurthairians. M was offered a place at our first choice school at the end of last week. Which means he's been into the school we were originally allocated for one (1) day, and now starts school again tomorrow at choice #1

@dadbod in some ways, it's all quite a nice distraction from *everything else in 2020*

@prehensile @dadbod Here, enjoy my favourite emoji that epitomises pretty much everything that has happened this year: 😑
But seriously, that is quite a run of events. How's M coping with the school change?

@hhulbert @dadbod he's pretty excited about it, so far. all his nursery friends are at choice #1, which helps (and is the main reason we chose to shift)

@prehensile @dadbod well, that's a relief anyway 😅 Hopefully the housing situation is as easily overcome 😬

@hhulbert @dadbod yeah, all we need to do now is househunting in a different city under lockdown 😬

@hhulbert @dadbod (it's not as glum as I'm painting, we have very keen family to help out at the other end)

@hhulbert @dadbod yes! we'd been planning it for a while, but it's all been accelerated by The Virus. Nearer to family will be nice. As will not being in London 🙃

@hhulbert @prehensile 🙌
we have similar plans, but postponed rather than accelerated by the 2020.

@hhulbert @liedra @prehensile we are more in an EUxit vibe, either crossing the Irish Sea or the Channel. sorry brits 😂

@dadbod @liedra @prehensile good thinking. My father-in-law moved to the top of Scotland for the same reason 😆

@dadbod @hhulbert @liedra very sensible. I'm envious of my friends who're EU / dual citizens right now, or are sufficiently German / Irish etc to get a passport.

@dadbod @hhulbert @liedra my family are inconsiderate enough to have not budged far out of the Midlands for generations 😑

@hhulbert @liedra @dadbod heh, my sister's not far from Leicester! Manchester for us, should everything work out.

@prehensile ah mate! sounds like a thick extra layer of drama on an already super hard time! good luck
