June 27

The long awaited for trip. Just one week after wretched exams and submissions and all my bags are packed and I'm ready to go for a 5 week holiday to England.

The journey was not exactly memorable. I had travelled alone before, but this was minus the benefits of unaccompanied travel. I watched 3 movies back-to-back; The Kite Runner, The other Boleyn Girl and P.S, I Love You and landed at Terminal 5 through grey clouds and cold rain- typical English weather.

What I remember from the next few days:

~Sleeping from 3 on Saturday afternoon till 7 the next morning curled up in the duvet of the top bunk.
~Strawberry picking on Sunday morning- Stuffed myself with strawberries, raspberries and tayberries.
~Being united with my laptop.
~Jumping on the trampoline!
~Eloise locking herself in the house the day I was babysitting her. I had to climb over the side gate (not that easy!) to get to the back door which, thankfully was not locked. Surprisingly, I was asked to look after all 3 girls by myself on several occasions after that incident!
~Jason choking with laughter, unable to breathe at Jo and my first attempts at the dance. My spastic hands!
~Losing in MAM- sorry girls. We never lose, do we? I completely take the blame-
I was blind:
Proof 1-
(thinking to myself): hey cool, Im out of yellow, and I have so many blues... maybe I should take the bid. Only later did I realise that this set didn't have yellow and had purple (It looked BLUE-ish) instead. This confused me throughout the ENTIRE game.
Proof 2-
I didn't realise that I had the Tiger till the second last hand. I'm telling you, it looked like the bull and where on the card does it say 'Tiger' in capital letters?
I also suffered temporary Alzheimer's and lost count of all cards. Where did 30 trumps go?
~Eating a mushroom Blintz. Very yummy!
~Punching 150 gold puzzle pieces.
~HAY FEVER!- finishing all the tissues in everybody's house!
