Day 98 of 365: Sometimes All I Need is the Air That I Breath and To Love You

Today was BORING!!! Well, for the most part anyway.

Woke up late. Watched some TV. Did three loads of laundry (which, I'm not allowed to actually leave the property when the wash is going because being Brits, Ian and Mum are afraid the house is going to catch on fire from the washing machine). So...I putzed online all day.

A guy from the housing council came by to look at a window that needs replacing.

Jamie called and we talked for two hours. The highlight of my day at that point.

Ian came home and we ventured out to find a place to walk. We wound up in a little area around here called Canada. No joke. We went to Canada.

Found Canada Commons which has a part of The New Forrest called West Wellow Common.

Just miles of small hills and bushes. And horses and donkeys skattered throughout. That's what I love most about the Forrest...just the wildlife roaming around.


  1. I always thought it was the dryer you had to worry about, not the washing machine. My friend knew someone whose house did catch on fire from their dryer.

  2. In response to your comment.. You are allowed to drive on your own US Driving License for up to 12 months without having to get anything. After that you will need to pass and get your UK license. This was in my Life in the UK book that you have to study when you go for your ILR. Ian just needs to call and get you added to the insurance. It will be a little higher if you do not have a UK license but will go back down after you get one. Ours went up about £9/month to add me.
