Desperate English Housewife in Washington, chapter 436

The Expat Child

Ever wondered what an expat child makes of all this living abroad in the USA stuff?

This morning we are having breakfast on the deck in the sunshine.

‘It’s just like being on holiday,’ says I.
‘We are on holiday,’ says Harry.
‘Is that how it feels?’ I ask.
‘Yes, because we live in England, remember. And this is a holiday. A very, very long holiday.’

This is a jolly holiday for Harry

Paper towels/kitchen roll

Europe has it, America has it. The UK doesn’t have it.

What is it?

Half-sheet paper towels (kitchen roll to us, British folk!), that’s what.



House of Cards

Did you know that the political drama House of Cards is filmed here in Maryland? Those who live here know that and are very proud of it, and next week I’ll be hanging out at the set, swapping hilarious stories about all sorts of gubbins with Kevin Spacey, as an extra on the show!

It’s the nearest I’ll get to an invite to the White House, but I’ll take it!

    House of Cards is still on my list of shows to watch. Guess we’ll wait until it’s a few seasons in without being canned. Still sad that Game of Thrones is over and I have to wait 10 months for the next season. Such an AWESOME show!
