Things of late

England expat life thoughts

Oh hey! Still here. No internet till next week. I’ve been feeling a strange mix of homesickness and comfort in making this new home of ours lately. An interesting juxtaposition, surely. In the meantime, I’m at Starbucks for their free wifi (which I used to fill out the application for a very perfect job the other day, but let’s not get our hopes up). In the meantime, loved ones, know that I am still alive, taking pictures of shit with my phone.

A large mirror that may forever live on the floor of our bedroom. But hopefully not. image

Living room shelves, full of things. image

I have plowed through the Hunger Games in about 4 days. Not especially ground breaking or anything, but worth a read. image

Being dumb. As we do. image

Cheery prints to look at daily. imageSo! That’s that. The getting settled continues, and it’s almost the weekend, so cheers to that. In other news, I set a little seagull trap today by putting bits of pancake on the window sill outside of our bedroom window. This is not so much a trap as it is a test, and I just want to see what happens. Oh, man, seagulls are cray. They are EVERYWHERE around here. The landlocked Ohioan in me will never get used to them. (And as an aside, no, there were no seagulls in the Pacific Islands. They don’t roll that way.)
