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.

Memorial Day Weekend.

Monday just passed was Memorial Day, this is a public holiday in America to remember all the people in the forces who have fallen.  Our long weekend was filled with glorious sunshine and soaring temperatures.  The air-conditioning on the boat was running full steam and offered us cool, shady sanctuary when things got a bit too hot.

We had a busy couple of days; Doug finished the baby crib and Tabitha spent her first night in it which was a wonderful success.  We fixed the baby bouncer to the Boom - that's the bit of the mast that runs parallel along the boat above the cock-pit for those of us who don't know!


We retrieved Jack and Twiggy and all to quickly realised that Jubilee is not a place where 2 adults, a baby and 2 dogs can live in perfect harmony 24/7 and hastily (though very sadly) returned them to our friends who are looking after them for us.....  We took a quick trip out to the new house and were disappointed to see that our plot looked exactly as it did three weeks ago, no sign of any work or digging yet.  On Sunday afternoon we had a delicious BBQ washed down with the most amazing peach sangria with our friends Becky, Chris and Quincy the dog who live in Annapolis.  Tabitha had a couple of play-dates with baby Jack whose Mummy (Mommy!) and Daddy have a boat along the dock and we all took courage and braved the 'unidentified floating objects' in kiddie pool at the Marina.  All in all, it was a fun and exhausting weekend- life is good!
