So why am I writing this blog........?

This blog is a way for me to record and reflect upon my day to day life and all the changes that have happened to me over the past 2 years. In a nut-shell I moved from the rich, bustling streets of London to the sleepy suburbs of Washington DC all in the name of love. My biggest reward in this adventure has been the love of my wonderful husband and the birth of our beautiful daughter. However this transition is not and has not been an easy one; it's been filled with tremendous highs and devastating lows- all part of life's rich tapestry and part of my story that I want to share as a mother, wife and of course as an English girl settling into life across the pond.

First Day and Second Night...

After the initial shock and general upheaval of Monday, things have settled down a lot.  My first day (yesterday) on the boat with Tabby was really lovely.  We spent the day steadily acclimatizing to our new surroundings and Tabby seems to be happy and settled.  She has three different play areas, two in the boat and one outside in the cock-pit which we have lined with foam tiles so it is nice and soft for her.  Although Tabby's sleeping area is still a work in progress (Doug is going to work his magic and build something this weekend) her sleeping was much better yesterday.  She had three good naps during the day and was asleep by her usual 6.30pm.  Much to my surprise she slept so soundly that she managed a 6 hour stretch which she has never done before- I feel rejuvenated and maybe, just maybe the bags under my eyes look a little less dark!!  Once the rain cleared it turned out to be a beautiful sunny day and evening.  It was so warm that Tabby took her evening bath in the cock-pit....she loved it and the marina was filled with delighted squeals and gurgles!
