Welcome back, baby!

In case you haven’t been following the moblog, here’s some shocking news for you: Paul and I have moved to the US. Texas, to be precise. Yes, we’ve done it. I’ve become a repat, and Paul is now the resident expat.

Now, after a fairly long hiatus, I have decided to return to blogging. I dropped it when the move became too much, and after that I just felt I didn’t have much to blog about – even when one of my biggest life changes was happening.  I  photographed it all and added what I wanted to the moblog. I didn’t really feel I needed to add the text to it. Or in fact, share all the photographs. You would think a move home would be the best thing in the world, what with how much I missed it, but it hasn’t always  turned out  like that. 

It’s taken me a long time to make peace with the move and everything that’s gone along with it, but here I am, so I guess I better start making the most of it. Texas is almost as much a foreign land to this Pennsylvania girl as it is to the Scot I married, and we’re hoping to explore as much of this great land as we possibly can.

So, welcome back, baby! It’s good to be home!

    Welcome to Texas! Your blog was one of the ones that helped me a couple of years ago when my family spent an extended time in London. My husband worked there for about a year; the kids and I stayed for the summer. We’ve lived in Texas for 25 years now, so if you need any pointers about this strange foreign land, just say the word!

    So glad you are feeling more at home. Texas was a great place from what I saw of it… and you can’t beat those signs for that Bucees place to San Antonio! I just wish I’d got more photos of those signs! And the cowboy hats do have a certain allure I just can’t explain!

    Oh, and just Googled your blog as couldn’t remember the URL… perhaps now also time to change the tag line: “The Adventures of Sarah and Paul. An American and a Scot livin’ it large in London.”? … something along the lines of …”living it Texas-large…” perhaps, in honour of the “Texas-sizing” your meal in Dairy Queen!!
