Alderney/Aurigny/Auregnais/Aoeur'gny

First thing Monday morning I set off on my summer of working on another little Channel Island... an island with an area of 3sq miles and 2400 people. Well. 2402 with Will and I, anyway.

I'm excited, been hearing of great weather and beautiful views - I think it'll be the perfect preparation for September, a relaxed way of life and *fingers crossed* a relaxed job... making some much needed money for our Guernsey flat fund. It'll be a lot easier being that much closer to Guernsey - in terms of property hunting and stuff.

Animals are going to have to go to my aunt-in-law. We have not got on with her for some time but she will look after them all and I am *sure* that we can put our differences aside... for the sake of Baby, Mittens and Stan.

Much love. *bisous*

An island of only 3 square miles? Sounds like a dream for me; that is if it were my island.

You have got to post pictures!

Yup! It's a little one that's for sure. I've never been before but my partner is there already and said it's divine.
I shall take a little walk around and post pictures asap.

PS Someone remind me to do a post on the Manic Street Preachers one day.

ahhhh you're gonna have such a good summer! it'll be sooo nice and peaceful... though LOL at me moving to Liverpool for the summer and you running away... Yes you should do a post on the Manic Street Preachers considering I keep babbling in my blog about Nightwish! xxx

Nikita said...

Thanks Jess! Aww I'm so sorry... I was looking forward to our summer in Liverpool, can you forgive me?

Hey Niki....

I looked up Alderney after I originally asked you...it looks lovely....and perfect. I didn't like picturing you in the middle of the UK... ;) Sea breezes for you missy!

I'm sorry you couldn't find homes for the pets...

happy travels....keep us posted.

Hi Nikita - Found your blog over at Memoires of a Heroinhead. Really like you blog, so very honest!

Maybe stop by my blog sometime.

Nikita said...

Thanks Dana! I am SO looking forward to it... sitting here with a full suitcase and a heart full of hopes as I prepare to leave the rain and cold behind.

I am sad about the pets too, but know that my aunt-in-law - despite our differences - will make a lovely home for them. And her 5 kids will love it!

Talk to you soon.

A.... welcome to my world! Took a quick look at your blog... will be back soon!
