Fair Warning - House prices, bagels, and football

Fair Warning
Fair Warning - House prices, bagels, and football

Hello! It’s been a weird couple of weeks — the US embassy cancelled all visa appointments in 2021, and I didn’t know how to take the news that I might be in Wales another year. I almost wouldn’t mind but I can’t even go to the US to see friends and colleagues while I’m waiting for my visa — I normally try to visit once a year.
My mentality has changed a bit to take it in my stride, but in my darker moments I resent being stuck here and feel like I’ll never move. I even started selling my stuff in preparation for moving… More fool me for being optimistic I suppose! 🤦‍♀️
I’m biased but reckon this is a solid Fair Warning, so let’s dive on in!
