Aneez met me at the airport and on the drive to Basingstoke, we saw this guy on the motorway...
A funny thing happens to me in England (other than the fact that I seem to think in an English accent.) Whenever I'm in the car, I have this habit of looking for words and hidden meanings in license plates. Pictured below, the PieShaker, Aneez and Vanessa's car.
Aneez, Vanessa and I spent the day in Guildford's town centre. Vanessa treated me to my first Fanta Orange. (I'm still trying to polish it off.) I also bought a book on shadow puppets and a cute purse pack of mini-markers - perfect for snail mail on the go. We made a quick pitstop at ASDA on our way home when Aneez made his first cheesy joke...he loves to play on words and is the King of Puns. He saw the two cars below and said to me,
"Look at those two nerdy cars, USB and PDF."
GROAN!! Kudos to my sister-in-law Vanessa who has been putting up with these jokes for 13 years!
Saturday night, we took the train into London to celebrate Laura's birthday. At Waterloo station, I saw this modern version of a mullet. Besides, losing my family, my biggest fear is going to the hairdresser and leaving with a mullet...does this qualify as a mullet?
After a riveting game of Jenga Extreme (Aneez won and he would want me to note that) and drinks with a mostly Australian crowd (such a friendly people) we headed home. A perfect first day of vacation!
