Confession: I am bad with dates and numbers. I forget birthdays, anniversary’s, pin numbers and dentist appointments. I once forgot our anniversary and I have yet to live it down! It recently dawned on us that we had forgotten our 6 year anniversary of living in London, and I was completely gutted that I missed it. With that, came the realisation that we have lived here for a quarter of our lives! This really made me feel old/older so of course I turned to Häagen-Dazs.
We came over to London fresh out of school with the intention of bumming around Europe for a couple of years and then going home. Well bum around we certainly didn’t. It’s been a long hard journey for us with many ups and downs but we are still here, seeing the world like we set out to do. Although I wouldn’t change our choice for love or money, it continues to be a hard choice to live away from home. Life can get lonely for us without our close family and friends and we often talk about how different our lives would be if we hadn’t have left, but then we think about all the amazing things that we have seen and done and the future we are building for ourselves and it makes it all worth it! Since that speech has made me miss home a little, here are some pics of my little piece of Africa.
