Hello new year

Image

So that's another year down and a new start for many of us and I'm bringing in this new year full of cold - oh the joy! Me and the boy welcomed in the year after watching reruns of The Big Bang Theory of TBS, watching the ball drop on ABC live from Times Square drunk up on Vicks and surrounded by tissues. It was weird watching all the comments from my friends in the UK on facebook welcoming in the new year at 7pm our time, sometimes you totally forget about the time difference.

2011 was a bit of a crazy year - being in a job I didn't particularly like, working with people who didn't understand my relationship, my visa adventure, London trips, moving to Michigan, getting married and visiting Chicago and Pittsburgh all in the space of a month. And I've been lucky enough to have this space to share it with anyone that cares to read [so thank you - I've often questioned myself I still blog; but knowing people read what I type does help]. Safe to say there's been a lot of changes and experiences going on, and 2012 probably won't be different. We're on the verge of posting off my forms to apply for residency then I can hopefully in a few more months look for a job, maybe we'll move, at least into a new apartment; maybe a different state, and hopefully get to go on lots more travels. I'm just glad I start 2012 by my husbands side. 

Happy new year!

  6. Thank you Nadin - I'm a bit worried about the residency paperwork, i'm scared of failing it or doing it wrong and getting thrown out the country to be honest. But I know once that is over we can think about properly settling and me getting a job.
