Desperate English Housewife in Washington, chapter 529

The Repat Blog

I’ve started up the ‘going home’ blog. Is it too early to think about going home? In some ways, yes – there’s still much to do out here, and life is great, but I have to prepare. You don’t just rock up back to the UK and go ‘right, what now?’. You have to get stuff sorted. So this new blog is a blog about the repatration process, and it will eventually be the blog that takes a look at the UK through my repat eyes. How has it changed, what does it feel like, how is it different, what did I not appreciate before? That kind of thing ๐Ÿ™‚ .

Anyway, it’s called Desperate Housewife: From America to England. It won’t be updated every day – maybe once a week for the first few months with a stream of consciousness, and then I suspect it will be on over-drive as we near our return.

But you’ve still for me for 8 more months, America! ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanksgiving crazy recipes

Thanksgiving is a work of art out there. I’m not sure what we’ll be eating on Thursday, but the American friends we are hanging with are great cooks, so I know there will be a feast.

I’m really just not sure about these things….

    I’ve enjoyed your blogs. Good stuff. There’s a great book called “I’m a Stranger Here Myself” by Bill Bryson, about his impressions of moving back home to America after living in England for 20 years. It’ll be interesting to read your impressions from the opposite perspective. Again, thanks for the entertaining blogs! (PS- Found these by accident because I’m Andrew K’s cousin. Glad I did.)
