Helloooo! I’m back! Again.
Seriously. I’m making a not quite mid-year resolution to post at least twice a month. We’ll see how that goes.
Time has been flying by since I’ve been back in the UK and started working full-time for real (woohoo, salary!). Right after I got back, I stayed awake for a whopping 4 hours or so, and then crashed on the couch. This picture resulted:
Ignore my wet hair that makes me look like I have a receding hairline, and pay attention to the adorable kitty who fell asleep behind me/on top of me. Love that cat. Well, for a few days at least.
The week that followed kept the awesomeness level up. We went to see Billy Elliot, which was amazing. I definitely recommend it if you have not seen it yet.

It was a high moment in life. 🙂 Go Delaware!
A few other fun things have happened that are worthy of a blog post, but I’ll save those for another day. We’re off to Lisbon for four days to celebrate my increasingly old age. 🙂 In the meantime, I’ll leave you with this gem from our trip to Wales a few weekends ago:
