Having arrived in London

hello all. we arrived safely into London Heathrow this morning about 7am. After we queued for a lengthy time in customs we were picked up by Andy Spence (husband of pj friend Rachel Spence). The Spence’s live in Chelmsford which is a suburb about an hour northeast of London. I cannot tell you how awesome it was to have a friendly face to greet us into this new and strange adventure. Traffic was bad so we grabbed a little breakfast (tea, s,eggcheese and cress sandwhich for about 8 quid (16US). Afterwards, I was cordially invited to enter my seat on the ‘other’ side of the car and we preceded our drive along M25 towards rest (driving about 75 sitting on the opp. side of a car was quite a trip…and for every manual car here the driver has to operate it with his left hand. huh.) Well, after a long day of jetlag, some good Thai food for dinner and a nip of shiraz at casa spence we slept hard.

  1. But have you seen the Queen yet?

    (Of course I’m talking about Helen Mirren here.)

  2. Yay! How is the weather like?

  3. Ah, the joys of the M25!

    Hope you’re finding your feet ok.

  4. YAY! I’m so glad you two are safe and sound. We’re all praying for you.

  5. Seen the queen? PJ is there to replace the Queen! Welcome to living on the other side of the pond said the jealous one sitting in his office at the crossroads of america!

  6. Hello dear friends!!!
    I’m so glad to hear that you arrived safely in London – Praise the Lord! I’m so glad that you started this blog that I might share in your adventures, even from afar.
    Much love,
    Lexy

  7. Jolly good, chaps. Glad you didn’t crash in the ocean or anything. That would have been really sad. I would have had to write a song about wind and candles and about you two and your tragic end. But, now, I don’t have to, and that’s good. I’m really too busy right now.

    Seriously, glad you’re safe. Get some rest.

  8. Ray! You’re absolutely right! My faux pas, mea culpa and all that…
