22 December


It’s really hard to concentrate in the office with Christmas this week and the last day being tomorrow.  Everyone’s kind of flitting about getting bits and bobs done, but not really focusing.  It doesn’t help that it’s bloody cold (1°C or 34°F, though it feels like it’s in the 20’s) and dark by 3:30 in the afternoon.  Most definitely am not looking forward to the commute home or the slow walk home from the station on ice.  Ugh. 

Looking forward to a nice break after tomorrow–as well as the move in closer to the city next week.  I guess I’ve started the blog at a bad time, as we won’t have an internet connection until after I’m already back at work on the 4 January.  Hopefully a neighbor will have an unsecured connection that we can leech off of for a few days. 

We’re doing Christmas with N’s family this year, instead of going to America to see my family like N’s done for the past 2 years.  I’m really excited about my first Christmas/New Years in London, but at the same time I’m a bit blue about being away from home.  I miss my family and friends so much!

And now for….

  1. Hey!

    You said: “it’s bloody cold” in your entry.

    My gawd, you’ve gone native!! 😉

    Thanks for the invitation to follow the adventures of a Kentucky girl in London. Starring you.

    1. I know… I’ve been using Brit-speak and frankly, it makes me feel dirty.

      You’re welcome for the invite… enjoy! Hopefully some things will make you laugh, cry, rage with injustice or feel a warm, sweet feeling in your heart. Failing all that, I hope you’ll be mildly entertained.

      1. Is your ultimate goal to blend in? And if you get really angry, does the Kentucky twang come out? Like when Ricky used to go all crazy in Spanish when he got pissed on “I Love Lucy”?!?

        (I should point out I’m using the American form of “pissed”, meaning really really angry, and not the British meaning!)

Leave some love!
