So I am here in snowy England, the latest snow arrived early this morning and we are due to get dumped on again overnight!
This is the view from my beautiful attic room at my brothers home, I have huge picture windows facing east and west giving me glorious views across open Somerset countryside.
My flight was long, cramped but smooth and I may have slept for an hour and dozed for a little longer on and off. I managed to stay awake all day and evening after arriving and went to bed at 10:30pm. I was wide awake at 3am and starving hungry, so I snacked on some Chex from my bag and opened the window and admired the view at night. I read for a little and went back to sleep at 4:30am and my brother woke me at 8:45am. So I seem to have already converted to Brit time and feel great!
Yesterday I got to hug my 89yr old Nana and have a Marks & Spencer Prawn Mayo & a Minced Pie for lunch at her house. My mum picked me up from the airport and then my brother and I headed down to his some in Somerset. When I got here my dad and stepmum had just arrived and I met my brothers lovely other half for the first time. We had a lovely homecooked dinner, relaxed and just enjoyed each others company.
I have already had a bacon sarnie for breakfast and some Galaxy chocolate, so life is REALLY good! I have to say although I really didn't want to leave the Hubster alone for Christmas, I am already having a wonderful time and it's great to see all my family.
We had plans to go out and around today but it's snowing and as we all know, England grinds to a complete halt with a bit of ice and 2 inches of snow!! In fact my brothers partner just arrived home after spending 90 minutes trying to make a normally 40 minute journey to work. He has given up for the day due to black ice, and yet the roads don't even have snow on them at the moment. Utter madness as far as I am concerned, but that's the British and their snow paranoia for you lol!
