Letter boxes UK stylie
When the weather is as gawd-awful as it currently is in Maryland, USA I miss one thing very much: my UK letterbox that is in my door.
It’s a very American First World problem that I have when it snows and ices over. What a palaver it is going out of my door and walking across the road to get to my mail box and collect my mail. Oh, how I miss my postie having to undertake the slipping and the sliding and make the journey TO MY DOOR to deliver my post and have it land on the warm cosy mat inside my house.
Yes, that’s what I miss 😉
A week today I will be in the UK, and I will holding a ball in my hands that I haven’t held for a long time: a netball.
My efforts at playing netball in the USA have been sporadic. Netball does exist, and I played in the USA Netball Championships in 2013 in Atlanta, but it’s still alien to most Americans. Aussies play it, New Zealand folk, and a lot of the Afro-Caribbean community and Commonwealth countries too. Just not enough Americans!
In my humble opinion, it’s THE BEST sport EVER and I can’t wait to play it again back in the UK 🙂
Britain is Brillopads
Apparently so, says a British expat in the USA who went back for a visit recently.
Have a read of the piece which is on my other blog Desperate Housewife: From America to England, which, if you aren’t following, I ask ‘why the flippin’ heck not?!’
