After spending a few days with the family here in the UK I'm settling back into
the British way of life nicely. Had a couple of visits to the pub, my fave of all British
Traditions.... last night was hilarious, the particular pub we went to has a little
room in the back, very traditional. I think they call it a snug.
Anyhoo... there were a bunch of old men in there just enjoying a pint and putting
the world to rights. It seemed they would all talk at once, then there'd be a few
moments of silence while they reflected and then it would start again.
Then at one point "the Mrs" of one of them poked her head in the door and
up he jumped, grabbed his coat and followed her home. Sweet.
We grabbed a Chinese take away when we left and my GOD it was
soooo awesome!!!! Really bad for you and I'll have a lot of work to do
when I get home to shed all the pounds I'm gathering along the way.
So.. and in true McGilly tradition, nothing goes smoothly... in this case we have
a cloud of volcanic ash over the UK, it's halted all flights... yes nothing
minimal here, not just a few delays or anything... ALL FLIGHTS CANCELLED!
Heathrow Airport is quieted, as is Gatwick and EVERY AIRPORT
in the COUNTRY!!!! wtf??? So while his gorgeousness panics about
the logistics of it all, I am calmly checking the websites and seeing
what the developments are. If all goes well I can fly home as planned on
Sunday, if not I'll just hang around and maybe shop a little more! hee hee.
Well gotta go now and get ready to head South, we're off to my old
stomping ground to see my old friends and guess what... we're going
to the pub!!! Whooop Whooop. Catch ya later bloggers!!!!
