So we arrived in the UK on Tuesday the 26th March 2012. The sky was Blue and the sun shining! After getting a Taxi to our house in Esher we settled in quickly and then headed to Kingston (about 15minute drive away – where Moni and I used to hit the shops) to visit our dear friend Ali. Ali showed us around her new house and then we swiftly hit The Ram pub by the river Thames for some pints in the sun. A few friends joined us Including Dave Erasmus. Shaun, getting excited about mexico ordered the ย fajitas, which he told the bar man ‘in australia we pronounce as Faj-ee-taz’. He ate them and then fell asleep at the table! haha good start to the week ๐Ÿ™‚

Day two we spent walking around portabello market and hyde park with Ali and Kat. Afterwards we met Alice and Reuben for a yummy curry in London Town. Shaun fell asleep at the table!

Thursday arrived and we managed to fit in a sneaky game of AFL (unlucky Tiges) before heading to wimbledon to drown shaun’s Sorrows. We sat at the Alexandra pub with Ali and her lovely boyfriend Jon. Jensie arrived shortly after like a little tornado of laughs and giggles! on the way home Shaun and I fell asleep on the train, went past our stop and had to get a taxi home… oooops!! 11 years in london and I’ve NEVER fallen asleep on the train.. I blame shaun ๐Ÿ˜‰

Friday was our rest day – By george did we need it! lots of sleep and prep for the next leg of our journey!

Sat Night was a fun one in Parsons green catching up with the Claygate/Esher crew of Kaff, Han, Emsie, Jen and Anna driver – what a lovely surprise! once again few pints, this time a BBQ – Shaun convinced it was put on for him. Then a late train home to prepare for MEXICO!! ๐Ÿ™‚
