Hello from England

Is it possible for your eyes to weigh a million pounds??
Because it feels like mine do...

I left my house around 9am on Thursday and
got to Tom's house at around 9am on Friday.
Which means i traveled non stop for around 18 hours 
with no sleep because the lady next to me on the big plane
wouldn't stop flopping around and hitting me in the side.

I didn't mind not sleeping too much.
I mean by the time i started getting sleepy
we were getting our breakfast on the plane
and preparing to land in Manchester.
Plus there was free movies so i was pretty happy.

Once we landed I was feeling some serious claustrophobia 
after being on that plane for so long.

I wanted off but the lady next to me, bless her, was taking her time.
Which was all fine and dandy until I finally got off and saw the customs line.

All of those lovely people we let go ahead of us were now in front of us.
It took about 20 minutes to get through the line.
All the while i was really nervous.

I wasn't sure what the protocol was for staying in a country for 5 months...
So when i got to my customs lady she asked me all of the customary customs questions
and then as we were finishing up our conversation she threw in
"so how long will you be staying"
gulp...5 months I replied...
"WHY ON EARTH ARE YOU STAYING THAT LONG?"
Whooaaaaa...because i'm in Love ;)

She then rolled her eyes a bit and stamped me through.
I did a little jump for joy while passing through the doors.

OH and while we were in line this man and woman were
being escorted out by the police.

They were British and the man just kept saying...
"I can't wait to get out of this awful country, away from these
awful people and these awful tourists. OH the tourists are the worst,
i hate them, i hate them so much, i hate this country."

He said all of that while standing next to our line
full of people who are just visiting the UK...aka the awful tourists..
It was actually pretty hilarious ;)

One i got to Tom's house i fought sleep for a little while
and then it just took over, i don't even remember half of yesterday.
I know that's not the way to do it, you should wait to sleep until it's night...
But like i said before, my eyes were like a million pounds and i couldn't resist.

I'm starting to wake up now though, and it's such a cool feeling being back.
It really feels as though i never left, i mean i was only here a few weeks ago.

I of course already miss everyone back home, mom, dad, the sibs, the whole fam.
I wish i could pack you up and bring you with me.

I love being back with Tom.
I am so so happy that this is all happening.
I love that i can go without seeing him in person for a while
and then when i see him we just pick up like we've been together forever.
It's all pretty perfect! :)


After a looooonnngggg day of traveling, and a long day of lazing
It's time to unpack, do some reading, go grocery shopping with Tom's mum
and wait for Tom to get off work :)

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!
