Day 249 of 365: Brolly Casualty
I was temporarily evicted from the flat today so Daz and Matt could get some painting done. To pass the time I went down to Merry Hill to look for some short-sleeved tops for work. I was unsuccessful by closing time at 7pm so I decided to hit up the Asda/WalMartSuper-centre. On the way back out to the car I noticed this abandoned umbrella in the car park -- a common sight virtually anywhere in England. Poor little umbrella.
I returned home to see the men-folk had managed to paint the ceiling and all four walls of the front room! Thank goodness...NO MORE BROWN PLASTERED WALLS!!
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
