People have asked me what we’re doing about Brexit. My response is usually a shrug. What can we do?

Both Nicklas and I don’t believe we should be required to take British citizenship to live in the UK. That is why we moved here in the first place. So if that turns out to be the case, moving away will be an option.

But we did spawn a British citizen, so what about him? There are no guarantees his citizenship will be untouched, but he’s got two other citizenships to fall back on.

But what about our house? Leyton’s housing market has been good to us, but if thousands of European citizens flee the UK at once, selling the house at a profitable price will be unlikely.

And what about our jobs? Both Nicklas and I are in the extremely privileged position that our jobs allow us to work from anywhere with an internet connection.

Right now, we are burying our heads in the sand and hoping for the best, or at least for the solution that is least disruptive. We want to stay. This is our home. Otherwise, Portugal might get 3 extra residents.
