It's no secret that the last few months have been a bit stressful for medlab people. Actually "utterly hellish" would probably cover it. But the insanity has made me realise something that I needed to sooner rather than later so maybe it's not such a bad thing.

I've already spoken to a couple of people quietly about this, but it's time I - or rather we, since this covers Hank too - let people in on things. Basically? I'm taking up a job in Edinburgh, running the Foundation Moira and I started last year. It needs someone on the ground there to make sure things run properly and it's a great opportunity for me to expand my career. Hank's got some part-time research work, which means he'll have more time to devote to Billy and other things. We're leaving around the second week of December in order to do the family Christmas thing before leaving entirely, and we should be there for New Year's.

We've talked to Moira and Jean and the Professor, and arrangements have been made for a replacement medic to come in or for one of the teleporters to get either one of us in emergencies.

I know our leaving will upset some people and I'm sorry for that, but sometimes you have to move on and it's that time for me now. Thank you all for your friendship and kindness and remember, we'll be only a short 'port away.

I won't.

I know, I know. watch my mouth.

I just don't want you to go. I know you need to and I understand it, I just don't like it. I hoping you'd at least stay through Christmas, but I guess this just gives me an excuse to go to Scotland to give you your present in person. And Hank and Billy's too.

hope everything works out.

You're always welcome, Pixie. Come see me before I go? We probably should talk.

Good luck, and Godspeed.

Keep in touch, you hear me? Across the Pond's a little far for me solo, but the woman's rich so a visit may be in order once you get settled.

Alison's richer _than I am_.

*sighs* Still not happy about that in some ways. But anyway. We'll be by to visit. Count on it.

No matter the means, a visit would be most welcome. And don't think this means you get to drive yourself into the ground with physio, either. ;)

I'll miss you (and maybe be just a wee bit envious that you're back in Scotland!). Take care and I hope you're all three happy.

Thank you, Rahne. I'll miss you too - and should you ever be in the area, you know you'd be most welcome.

It sounds like a good opportunity for both of you. I'll miss you, but as you said, oceans don't mean quite as much to us in terms of distance.

The timing's not great, I know, but it's right for me. For both of us. Stay in touch, okay?

I've got to go meet David's family for Christmas, but mind if I come see you guys for New Years? Just because you're moving to a different country, is no reason why I shouldn't stay in touch, right?

Definitely come visit for New Year's. Carlie will be there too - after she stopped pouting at me, she realised me living in Scotland meant she'd get to travel overseas too...

Whoo! Shall so be there. *grins* I'll even drag David along so you can finally meet him.

I'd love to meet this boy of yours. I promise to make sure Hank doesn't go too overboard with the Protective Male Figure act.
