It is mid November and soon I will have to decide what to do next year. This house sit will continue until the end of January (though I am always aware that if something happens to my "host" in China she may come back early and I have been listening to her challenges with Bell's Palsy with interest. Luckily she seems to be improving, and I admire her for persisting with the Chinese hospital!)
I am enjoying this house sit - plenty of peace to continue my studies. My big decision is what do I do in February 2011? Do I stay here at Paddington if she decides to do another semester at Yuexiu? Or do I go to China/Yuexiu? The latter I would prefer, but family commitments weigh heavily on me.
I know I could continue my study in China - that does not present a problem to me, and I think of the $$$'s I can save by being there. But what about Mum and Dad? If anything happens to them I would have to return home to Australia.
What do I do? I don't have to made a decision IMMEDIATELY, but d-day is looming.
