Sorry I haven't been keeping you all updated as to what's happening, but hopefully I'll make it all up.
I landed fine, totally unaware of what all was happening around me. For those of you who haven't been keeping up on things, terrorists had been caught trying to sneak explosives onto plane to explode either en route to or in America. It's quite terrifying. I'm trying to put it all behind me, but it's hard. It's scary. First friggin' time I not only fly by myself, but I'm in another country with only person who knows who I am! Ridiculous. Anywho, my plane rides were fine. I sat next to a funny guy who's main goal was to drink quite a bit, pop a vicadine, and pass out. We chatted a little but once the movie on the plane came on, She's the Man, he was out. Then the airport was horrid, tons and tons of people in that airport, all of them in lines, or queues, and rude. So, I held my tongue and trying to be polite as possible.
When I finally found Sally she was so relieved. For they just started to cancel flights. It was terrifing. But, we made it home okay. Sally's house is adorable. After getting a little settled, eating something, and showering I felt much more like a person. Sally and I then ran into Reading, which is only a short car ride away, like fifty, twenty minutes away. We then wandered around some shops. We found a coffee shop that sold books as well, so we found a bunch about London and looked for like the 'top five things to do in London'. We got some great ideas that we're going to try out.
We then wandered home. We were both fighting off jetlag, (Sally just got back from Greece), and I decided I was going to go off to bed as soon as we got home. We got home at four pm. I wasn't bothered it being so early for I hadn't gotten to sleep on the plane at all and thus had been awake for over a whole day.
Well, kids, same bat time, same bat place!
