Can't talk, but here are some pictures

Me on plane to England. Note head of sleeping infant to the right. Thassmyboy!

My brain is officially full to capacity, what with newjobandeverything. I promise a post soon soon soon. Once some brain matter comes available....

This is Kent, and the luverly village my parents live in. Imagine birds tweeting, cows mooing, and the stench odour of lots and lots of sheep poo that squelches underfoot.




This is Castleton in the Peak District, and a mere 40 minutes from where we live. There is an massive underground cave there called the Devil's Arse, which pleases immensely.





Manchester University. Lovely isn't it? If you think my office is in one of these buildings, you'd be very wrong.


***Imagine fetid redbrick building here--that's where I compute***

That's all for now. Blogger is barfing on my pics. (Gah!)

Am looking forward to updates.

Dude. You look fab. It looks fab.

I wish I was some supersonic PhD of large brilliance with big trust fund who could guest teach at some awesome Oxford like place for a year just to get to live out my fantasies born of watching too many episodes of the mystery show on BBC America I love so well but can't seem to remember the name of.

Lookie there, some brilliance! Master of run on sentence!

It look slike you are enjoying...settling in...doing well.

I am so glad. :)

You gorgeous thing, you!

I went to Castleton on a school trip once. I wish I could remember something good to tell you about it.

I'd like to know what foods you've been eating the most of since you're home now.

Fairly Odd Mother said...

Very nice to see you! All the photos look lovely and make me wish for a trip. Doesn't England get autumn? It looks so green there still!

Kelly said...

Awesome! Good to hear you're getting settled, and in some very picturesque places, I might add.

AliBlahBlah said...

I loved the photos, they made me think quite wistfully of home, until I remembered that this recent Indian summer in the UK is just a tease and that it's permanently beautiful here....

slouching mom said...

Oh, yay -- for lovely pictures and for word of you.

Mom101 said...

It's hard to imagine anything fetid there. Except the food.

BWAHAHAHAHA!!!

(Stupid American.)

BOSSY said...

Just you try to make all that seem unappealing to Bossy. Just. Try.

Redneck Mommy said...

It looks lovely.

Would be much lovelier, of course, if I was there to snap pics with you, but life isn't perfect now is it?

Keep well friend.

Elizabeth said...

The surroundings are beautiful, and you look gorgeous and happy! Thanks for sharing the photos!

PunditMom said...

Beauty-ous!

Jozet said...

I come visit when now?

Seriously...green, green, green with envy.

And on top of the stunning locale, you're so dang cute.

GHD said...

So very lovely! All of it. You, your surroundings, and that sleeping baby.

Thanks for the update. Can't wait for more.

I am sooo glad that I've lifted my head out of the toilet long enough to see you posting. yay!

Kelly in Kansas said...

The happiness comes through in both the voice of your blog and your pictures. I'm looking forward to continuing to live your adventures across the pond vicariously !
