The increasingly waffly blog of an English girl who jumped the pond to be, rather than to seem to be.
Are those Union Jack gloves your mum is wearing? So happy for you that you get to see them again. I know I thoroughly enjoyed having my mum visit earlier this year. Still missed the family dynamic of us all being together back in the UK though. Enjoy your time with your folks xx
They are indeed! Leather ones, I think. It's been wonderful having them here so far. Out to dinner at our favourite place tonight, so fingers crossed it lives up to expectations!We don't really have large family get-togethers; we are usually just the six of us. So we're currently missing my brother and his wife! But we'll all be together again at Christmas. I can't wait. Hope you get to see yours again soon, too! xx
Are you going home for Christmas or will it be Christmas in NC for everyone? I really don't have any vacation time left for this year, hopefully we'll be back in the UK in August. One of my best friends are getting married so we'll be flying in for her wedding. Loving her gloves! I can only imagine how great it is for you to have them here and I know there will be plenty of pictures uploaded at a later date! xx
We're going home for Christmas! All booked and actually just confirmed today! We didn't want to say anything until we knew we had dates definite for dog-sitting and places to stay in England, but we've known that we'd be going back for some time. :D Vacation time means diddly squat for me as I get nothing for the first year of work anyway - I can take vacation but don't get paid, and I let them know about this trip when I interviewed, so they had fair warning. So excited for you about going back for the wedding! I am sure it will be wonderful, plus you can get away from stuffy August heat. :) It's been amazing to have my folks here. I missed them stupid amounts. xx
Fantastic to see you reunited, I'm sure it'll be a great visit! (Off to check out your video blog now!)
Thank you, Paul! It's been wonderful so far. I do hope the v-log didn't send you to sleep. ;)
Thanks for taking the time to write! I try to reply to everyone, and I love to read your comments.
