Grey Skies & Gloomy Spirits

Yesterday and today I’ve been wandering around in a funk. Today was much better than yesterday: I successfully opened a UK bank account, took care of loose ends with the leasing agency, received a few important packages and we got our cable TV installed. However things with my clearance still aren’t worked out and I had to pay another small fortune at the petrol pump.

So far, this experience has been a roller coaster of emotion with several ups and downs and I want to get off. I’m just ready for things to even out a little. I know I’m being whiny when I have so much to be thankful for and excited about but it’s been a little tough to pull myself up today. The grey, cold, rainy skies for the last two days isn’t helping either. I am so ready for base stuff to get cleared so I can start working and making money again. Then we can start planning travel and stop feeling so stressed. Never thought I would want to work so badly!

On a happier note, we had a wonderful weekend with trips to two nearby cities including Cambridge. I also finally got all our stuff out if suitcases and bought some more kitchen and home essentials. Finally, I got a wonderful email with lots of photos from Em’s wedding last month! Tomorrow we’re planning to get out and explore the nearby areas some more – I think it’s just what I need!

I’ll leave you with a few photos from the weekend.
