Default Coming Back To Riyadh?



Just had a phone call this morning, breaking the news that it looks like I'll be on my way back to Riyadh some time in the next couple of months ( April ? ) .

Its been on the cards really, the work here has dried up, so the company's HQ is in Riyadh,where there will be more work for me. I can see it makes sense from a business point of view, but its my step daughter that will potentially suffer.

After leaving the UK last summer and coming to Jeddah, she's settled into here school here, and takes here IGCSE's next summer. Moving her to Riyadh will really unsettle her and then she's into her final year of her exams as she's 16 next year.

Spoke to Mrs Bantam who would prefer for the two of them to stay in Jeddah while she finishes her schooling, so thinking of a way to see if we can do that.

So, back to sand and dust of the capital eh? Must say, have really enjoyed it here by the seaside, will be sad to leave.

sorry to hear that, nottmbantam, always a bit awkward that kind of shift. so are you planning on commuting until her exams are over?
