It's been 7 years since we came home from our big OE - and I haven't been back overseas since (hubby on the other hand, has - but let's not mention that!)... and next week, we're doing the incredibly crazy thing of taking a toddler each on our knee and spending a day in a plane to get all the way back to London! For a little over a week!!!
and I'm so excited!!! (And also terrified).
Hubby has a bro and sis living in London, he lived there for 7 years and me for almost 5 (well we had the last two in Edinburgh) and in fact we met in a flat in Kentish Town... had our first drink together in a pub called the Cat and Canary (who was who, you ask...)
We have lots of reminscing to do, lots of friends to catch up with, lots of food to eat AND I get to meet my editor and see the offices at Richmond!!! And then (yes, there's more) on Thurs 18 its the annual AMBA (Assoc of Mills & Boon Authors) lunch - so I get to meet all those wonderful writers! (Scary, scary). The 18th of Sept was my M&B loving Grandma's birthday - and when I found out that the lunch this year was on that date I took it as a sign (ie big fat excuse) to board a plane and sit on it for hours and GO!
Definitely crazy. But hey, what's life for? :)
