Jet Lag on Film
Yup, I'm Lagged.
Ok, so in the past the Brits that were behaving badly were sent to prison in Australia. This time Penny the Australian has been imprisoned in the UK. We were hoping to be here for a week, maybe two...it's actually been almost a month.
This is going to be a short entry…as we’re visiting friends and family because we’re imprisoned in the UK…so nothing too exciting for everyone else! We arrived back in London after Hawaii and Chicago to…surprise, more sunshine! So we weren’t going to complain. We had an appointment on Thursday to go to the Canadian Embassy and get Penny’s Canadian Visa sorted. We stood in the queue for about half an hour before getting into the embassy. 15 minutes later they had Penny’s passport and told us to come back in 2 weeks. So off we went to Birmingham to visit Nigel, Penny’s cousin.
A quick train ride got us to Nigel’s and we went for a meal and a pint, and had a good chat. The next day Nigel took us up to a local lake (there was actually 3 separate lakes) and we took a walk around and saw plenty of birds, I’m not
We had to go see Buckingham Palace and tick the box. Moose wasn't bothered but we made him get a photo anyway.
a huge bird fan, but I like Herons and we spotted a few of them. Nigel was going away for his work, so Penny and I hung around his place for a few days before heading up to Scotland. Thanks Nigel!! In Scotland Jen (a Canadian friend of ours) picked us up and we crashed at her place. We met up with a few friends while we were in Scotland, caught up with my family and then said our goodbye’s a second time before heading back down to Birmingham where we caught up with Nigel for a night before he headed off for his work again. Then we were back in London for a night to pick up Penny’s passport, and I had an interview for my British Passport….then we jumped on a Bus up to Glasgow….again. This time we stayed with John, a friend of mine who was kind enough to water and feed us for a few days before he disappeared off to Turkey for work…so we were able to stay at his place, and in return for his help we dug up his backyard and laid down some seed for him! John also took us with him
Well, could have been a Mrs or a Miss, but someone got dropped off at Buckingham Palace in a horse drawn carriage...oooh!
and 3 of his 4 boys to the Alva Highland Games, and since Penny had never seen a highland games before that was cool. It also turned out that my passport showed up the day after we left London! So now Penny and I are all good to go, we’ve bought plane tickets to Toronto (Hamilton actually) and we’re on our way this Saturday. So this time we really are leaving…..for the 3rd and final time!! Goodbye Scotland, hello Canada!
