Last night in London

It’s finally here! After three years in London I fly out tomorrow with a one-way ticket to Seattle to start a new life there. I’ve said my goodbyes, moved into a hotel, and composed many unwritten blog posts about the emotional rollercoaster, stress factory, and logistical puzzle that is a trans-Atlantic move and job change. I’m sad and excited and exhausted. All that’s left to do in the morning is figure out how to hide my houseplants in my luggage so that I can smuggle them back into the US without getting caught.

  2. Have a wonderful journey! Make sure you pick up some beans, tomatoes, bangers, and tea as soon as you get home so you can eat a full English as soon as possible. That’ll help you acclimatize.

  3. You should also change your locks in Seattle so they require a skeleton key. That will definitely help.

    1. Completely agree. And then make all of my other keys identical so that it’s impossible to tell them apart.

    As long as they don’t confiscate the shamrock, it’s all good!

    1. So far so good for the shamrock! But I need to get it back into soil before to long…
