HALLOWEEN IN LA

Family, Los Angeles - November 3, 2016

Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?

It’s a couple of mornings after the night before and I can’t say any of us have come down yet. Halloween here in LA is one of the most outrageous, hilarious, indulgent, and hands down FUN nights of the year. It’s a big one people and it was on a school night and we’re flipping knackered (which means exhausted in English).

Pumpkin Disorder: The Early Onset of Halloween

Los Angeles - October 9, 2016

I’m utterly baffled – yet again. Have you ever had those moments where you wonder if you are actually awake or dreaming? When the scenario in which you find your life is so completely weird that for a moment you a scared there’s something very wrong?

LOST IN TRANSLATION

Los Angeles - September 25, 2016

I am English. I speak English. I vote in England. I even took English A Level and was nationally graded (quite well, I might add) in this subject. I have studied many a Jane Austin novel and visited Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London as a native and not a tourist. I’ve even been known to quote the odd Shakespeare in my day-to-day lingo (Friends, Husband, Children – LEND ME YOUR EARS!)

FETCH ME A SPOT OF TEA YOU WANKER… OR SUMMER IN SO-CAL

Family - June 30, 2016

It’s impossible to believe that we have just completed our first academic year here in LA. The fact that we’re still in June makes it all the more bizarre because school here breaks up over a month earlier than London so I feel cheated and disoriented (again)!

Shag the balls, Homecoming Queen

Family - November 13, 2015

I don’t think we’ll ever be the same again.

We have now experienced Homecoming, (the all-American, very patriotic, all singing, all dancing extravaganza), Halloween LA style, (which literally took over the World), and my 13 year old daughter was instructed by her Volleyball teacher to, “get up and shag the balls!” (apparently, in American, this means to “collect the balls at the end of the game”).

High School Musical

Los Angeles - September 14, 2015

Hello from LaLa Land! WE DID IT!! Whoohooooo!!

What a few weeks it’s been. The amount we have all experienced – all the changes and newness – has been so monumental, it’s hard to believe we’ve only been here a month.
