tube strike

So today is my first experience living in London with the Underground on strike. It's chaos outside. Buses are passing stops because they are bulging at the seems. Lots of people still haven't made it into work today. Lucky for me my commute is about 30 seconds by elevator :)

Had a FABULOUS birthday yesterday! My lovely husband got me the new Metroid for Wii and I can't wait to have a chance to play it! I also got a new electric toothbrush which makes me happier than a pig in poop :) Best of all he suprised me with tickets for a weekend getaway in Edinburgh this weekend! Woohoo! I have one other little gift but I don't want to post about it just yet. I first have to experiment with it and then I'll share the full scoop.

Even though there is a LOT to learn yet, I feel so much more relaxed in general being here in London. The people I work with are nice and actually LAUGH throughout the day. I'm breathing better because I'm not suffering from dust/sand allergies, the weather right now is pretty much a perfect t-shirt temperature, and I haven't had a single anxiety attack since moving here. I'm so happy to be out of that negative work environment!
