Finally made it out yesterday, leaving Bee to sell the final furniture. She's off on hols to Albania (don't ask, she has been there once already). I'm in Georgia for a week, while my worldly goods get to Vilnius, then I finally move into my new apartment, finished or not. Mostly not. It's hard to concentrate on more than one home at a time.
So this is really the end of family living in the same place. After Moscow, Sloph is in Edinburgh interning for as long as she can, and Bee's having a gap year before LSE (fingers crossed for exam results on August 20). Not that we exactly spent a lot of time in the same home, since I wasn't home much in the last couple of years.
But now we predict we might not meet again till Christmas (in my new home) so we really are dispersed.
Not sure I will really miss Oxford. Despite what you might think, most of the people I met were rather narrowminded and not interested in very much life outside Oxford. Consequently I shall miss the Cowley Road with its cosmopolitan life, shops, cafes, restaurants and general eccentricity, more than anything else.
