I couldn’t sleep last night and, as often happens when I can’t sleep, I ended up reading a huge succession of random web pages. Continue reading “Why Brits Live Longer Than Americans and Other Stories”
Hello readers! I realised this evening that I hadn’t posted in forever and with NaNoWriMo coming up in just a few weeks I need to get back into the habit of writing because I’m going to have a lot of writing to do.
It’s been a pretty warm weekend here with temperatures here currently 32C (90F) and showing no signs of cooling down. I’ve been out and about by the coast to try and keep cool and have shared some of the photos below. Continue reading “Warm Weekend”
Returning back to the US this weekend I discovered among the piles of junk mail that I actually had some good news; the Removal of Conditions (ROC) on my green card had been approved! Continue reading “10 Year Green Card!”
In the past two weeks I have been back to England, had a city break in Edinburgh and returned home to the US. Its been an eventful few weeks with a grand total of 5 flights! I thought I’d share some of the photos with you now that I actually have some time to sit down. Continue reading “Exploring!”
I’m back in my hometown and wanted to share some photos with you all and wish you a happy Friday! I hope you at least some of you are as silly as I am and enjoy the final photo.
I’m back in home in England for a couple of weeks so thought I’d finally post something after a long gap. I’ve been terrible at posting recently but I’m going to try and get back into it. I didn’t want to just post for the sake of it, you know? I do miss writing though so am going to make a big effort.
I had a red-eye flight and I can’t sleep on flights so my body clock is a bit messed up at the moment. They say even a broken clock is right twice a day but my body clock isn’t! Anyway here’s a couple of pictures from a walk I went on after getting home yesterday. It’s so green.
A while ago I wrote How to Not Look Like an Idiot in America, a slightly silly guide to how not to embarrass yourself as a Brit in the US. It was a long time ago but I’ve finally got around to writing a second part based on more things that I’ve embarrassed myself doing since. If you are a Brit living in the US you might just find this relevant. Continue reading “How to Not Look Like an Idiot in America Part 2”
There’s a famous quote by LP Hartley that you have probably heard of; “the past is like a foreign country, they do things differently there”. As someone living in a foreign country where they definitely do things differently does this mean that I am living in the past? Continue reading “The Past Is Like A Foreign Country”
I’m back! I realise that I haven’t posted in two months and I’d like to say that it’s because I’ve been really busy doing important things but the truth is that I just couldn’t think of anything to talk about and I’m really good at procrastinating. Like gold medal good. But I’m back and you’re stuck with me (unless I don’t get round to posting for another two months). Continue reading “A Weekend in Vermont”
