day 1 in a new country

Oh my God.

I'm here. I've made it to the other side. Amongst tears and angst, I've made it into the EU unscathed and so tremendously happy.

I keep thinking, 'Jesus. I live here. I actually live here.'
This is my new city. I am a Londoner. I can walk around with my iPod in, pay in pounds, and absorb my new country.

I can't believe I'm here. I've done London enough times to know a fair bit about it, not to mention through my Brit boyfriend. But now I'm seeing it all with completely new eyes.

This is my new home. It's the start of a new life, a new re-invention, a new everything.

And as to be expected, my arrival comes in lieu of drizzle and a hurricane outside.

Despite that, I am absolutely walking on Cloud 9.

PS: Might've been also because, being collected by my Brit with a bunch of roses in his hands, does make this transition that much sweeter. Sigh.

Whooooooooop whoooooop go peas! :) I feel like that scene in cider house rules when one of the kids has just been adopted and they all say bye to him. The single girls say "bye peas!"

Oh my god. I can't believe it. All this time, all your efforts, all the tears and stress and self-loving and you're finally in the same country you've lusted after, which happens to be the country belonging to the man you can now lust with. Like, in real life and everything!

So happy for you babe - really, truly, madly happy you've jumped on board to the first day of the rest of your life :)

So glad you have arrived and made it safely to your 'new home'. London is your oyster now - go out and conquer! PS. Take an umbrella as it's raining!

Thank GOD for technology and that even though you're millions of miles away, your blog really does bridge the gap (get it...mind the gap? Oh never mind)

I am very excited for you though, I must admit!! Yay for the rose giving Brit and YAY for having the courage to embark on such an incredible journey!!!

I am coming to visit you... just thought I'd give you the heads up now! HAHA!

Have fun angel x

Guys thanks so so much!

It's crazy, the moment I landed i viewed London with a COMPLETELY new mindset, which in itself, is a mindfuck. On a serious learning curve again, and I love it.
I have no doubt I've made the best decision for me right now. Thanks so much for all your encouragement and kind words guys, seriously.

Blondie - you BEDDA come and visit Swiss Miss :)
