Back to the Land of the Angles

Cowgirl Head
We’re home safe now…where it’s warm…so…gloriously…warm. England was not.

The people were wonderful. I miss them so so much but what I don’t miss is quadruple glazing and saunas and the need to never wear a sweater inside. Finland may be notorious for it’s frigid temperatures but that’s OUTSIDE not inside. One resturaunt we ate at was actually colder inside that when we went back outside! Swhat??? I am amazed – utterly amazed about how soon I became “unconditioned” to living with English cold. The week we choose probably didn’t help either. Rain, fog and freakin’ hail stones greeted us when we arrived. It was fun driving on the M25 in all of that let me tell you.

In all though, I did pray that I wouldn’t fall back in love with everything English and that I would have the desire to return home and it was provided. Be careful what you wish for.

Now onto the good stuff: mainly the people.

The ones who came to our pseudo-reception.

Where we asked them to dress up a la 1940s style.

They didn’t fail to impress with photos and for the support and love they gave to us by being there.

.....but we managed to kidnap our beloved Sheila for three days up north to geek all out in medieval York.
Up Next: ROAD TRIP!

I knew it! At heart, you're just a soft southerner!

You forgot that you were travelling to the part of the Sainted Isle where men are men and so are the women!

Re: Up North
reminds me of Gimli talking about his dwarf females.
