And unable for some reason to start a new topic there, my latest news will have to go here. This was my original contribution:
David Jr. arrived safely by plane from Thailand for the last time last night and messaged me on the train towards Nottingham. He loves Thailand but after many years it was time to move on. His next job in September is in Malaga so we might see more of him from now on, including a week or so here perhaps next month.
After several weeks and neary a fortnight into his new job in Malaga, he has been informed that he will be liable for 40% tax, something which as a family man he simply cannot afford.
It was already a drop in salary from his Thailand job so a further hit that is simply unsustainable.
The half good news bit is that his former employers in Thailand had kept his job open for him and are welcoming him back, but the other side of the coin is that he will have to take the family back to Wales, and leave them there for the foreseeable future.
So after 6 years apart, from me, and the joy of having him comparatively as a neighbour, we have to go back to Skype.
