It’s not just a different accent

California: shopping cart
London: shopping basket

California: daycare/preschool, kindergarten, first grade
London: nursery, reception, year one

California: diaper, stroller, onesie, pacifier
London: nappy, buggy, bodysuit, dummy

California: Hi! Bye!
London: Hiya… cheers.

Plenty has happened since my last post. First of all, Olivia was born! She arrived on the 23rd of August, with a tough but amazing VBAC. Then, about a month ago, we moved to London. Nuff said.
Looking back at the last year, we have been crazy busy the whole time, so it’s no wonder I haven’t posted much here. We’re still in the process of settling in, learning to interact with the locals (see above), building IKEA furniture, finding some help with the kids and so on and so forth. So I’m not making any promises, but I really hope to manage and find a little more time for the blog in the future.
Meanwhile… Cheers!
