The Countdown Begins!

London, here I come! In exactly one week at this time I will be boarding the plane to cross the pond to my summer home.

It is hard to believe it is finally here! It seems a little surreal that in a week's time I will be living a completely different life, even if only temporarily. Up until now, this trip has been exciting in theory. Now that I am actually packing and setting up departure schedules, the realization that I will not be home for an entire month is settling in.

No crybabies here! A tiny scaredy-cat, maybe. But one of those cute ones that just needs a few extra minutes to be coaxed out of the carrier and then proceeds to take over the place.

So, what are the going odds? I hear the categories are Mis gets to London and freaks out or Mis gets to London and does not want to come home. It's all cool, just be prepared to hand over the winnings when I get back happily full of new British habits and slang!

That's all for now, stay tuned for the last minute updates, meltdowns, and antics!


P.S. Family and friends-if you want something special from the U.K., put your orders in now! Email me or leave comments here. We have a couple of days dedicated to exploring the local markets and shopping centers the first weekend we are there before the exploring gets .


  1. shoot, is it too late to order a ginger haired bloke from Essex?

  2. Depends! Who's asking?
