1,293 days later. The final tally.

Sunday, November 15th, 2009

And I’m on my way home. One thousand, two hundred and ninety three days later (thanks to the Date Duration Calculator for that one) and it’s time to take a one-way ticket back again. Whilst reading through all my blog entries the other day it was fascinating (if not, slightly excrutiating) to discover my posts […]

Going home is easy now, as I’ve finished my packing. I literally had to sit on my suitcase to squeeze down the top of my bag so that I could get the zip to go all the way across. I’m taking back more than I brought across with me, and I’m still leaving behind a […]

So here it is then – my ultimate list of why the UK rules, and the USA sucks. Ok, no – I’m not gonna do that. Do you really think I’ve learned nothing during me time year? (Don’t answer that!). Far from it, I’ve learned loads. But when reading through every single post I’d written […]

I’ve been busy. No, really. I’ve been back today and read through every single blog post that I have written in my time in the USA, and been reminded of everything I did. Some of it is fun, some of it is well written. Some of it is embarassing to read, and some is just […]

So I’m packing clothes into a suitcase today, and I’m hit with the strangest of thoughts. I’m folding up an old crappy t-shirt that I remember I used to wear back in Britain, and started to worry that I might have had it too long. “Will it look weird if I go home with some […]

One of my main obsessive compulsive behavioural things-to-do, is to neatly make playlists in iTunes called ‘My…’ followed by the year, which is a chronological list of my favourite songs throughout the year. Back in the days of cassette tapes, I used to make up compilations (as everyone did) of my favourite current songs. That […]

Hello, I must be going … home

Sunday, November 8th, 2009

Last week in the USA then. As I sit and type this, I realise that at this time next week I’ll be on a plane. First I go north a bit to Philadelphia, and then east quite a bit more to London. It’s time … The Prodigal Son returns to the City of Londinium next […]
