And so, I hit the shores of the green and pleasant land with a drowsy five-year old in tow, a bunged up ear, no service on my US phone and no US to UK adaptors for my plethora of communications devices. 😉
I can’t really blog much at the moment, because my jet lag is making my fingers all a bit wobbly and weird!
Anyhow, observations so far:
– People sound very, very English.
– The roads are small and windy!
– People drive on the other side of the road and it is very disconcerting – I am going to have to check myself every time I make a turn otherwise those British bobbies are going to be very busy.
– Everything looks very, very old (courtesy of Harry).
– It rained whilst I had a cup of tea.
– I am seeing things through new eyes – I have a new appreciation of the UK and its charms!
– I am intrigued by views and countryside and British iconography that I once took for granted and am now snapping away like a tourist (see pics below!)
– I will be feasting on a roast chicken dinner tonight – meat and three veg! And gravy of course!
I’m pooped – still on US time with three hours sleep! I’ll be falling asleep in my gravy at this rate….. 😉
