I’ve been living in the UK for a little under 3 weeks now. I am adoring it here. My man has been away a lot due to work but the time we have got to spend together has been so special :).
I’ve found a part-time job in a tea shop (how British!) and I’m really enjoying it. I work with a great bunch of girls and hope to make some friends there. I’m still looking for another part-time job however as I’m only getting a few hours a week. It is a perfect fit for me however as I love teas (my better half and I have an entire shelf just for teas at home).
My man (who was supposed to be away for 3 weeks) was able to unexpectedly come home a few days ago for the day and we spent a lovely day at Hunstanton beach :). I even tried a bite of fish and mushy peas.
Most days I’ve been out in the yard weeding, planting, watering and laying grass seed and doing bits around the house. I can’t wait until my man can spend some more time at home and we can put a proper garden in. I’m fascinated by watching things grow.
They are having a MAJOR heat wave this past week. It is 33 degrees today which is lovely but a bit hot inside with no air conditioning (most homes here don’t have air conditioning). Luckily it has cooled down enough at night to sleep. There’s an ice cream truck that goes by at least 5 times a day, I really ought to get an ice cream one of these days!
Tonight I’ll be making homemade lemonade to beat the heat 🙂
