Bad Bad Blogger

Is it true that I really haven't written on my blog since MONDAY? I think that might be a new record for me! This week passed very slowly being in England and not at home. Wednesday Deaner had the day off of work and we ventured over to Cambridge to visit the University. It was really pretty and only could have been better if the weather wasn't so gray! Here are a few of my favorite pictures.It was a pretty good time. They were having a market in the middle of town and I was able to get 3 practically new books for 2 pounds! We will definitely visit here again next time we have a chance!

Yesterday we were happy to finally return home. I have to say that it was pretty much my worst experience ever on Ryanair. I have heard the horror stories and have been happy with our travels on the airline so far. Yesterday I was pretty sure we were going to die. During the landing we went through some very thick fog and apparently overshot the runway because the pilots didn't have their Cat 3 equipment set. They had to pull up the airplane hard at the last minute and it was very obviously something was wrong. I was not impressed when they came on the speakers saying not to worry the weather just "caught them a little off guard". During the second attempt at landing Deaner leaned over, tightened my seatbelt and told me not to look out the window. Nice. When we were finally safe on the ground (I was drenched in sweat) I was really surprised we could land at all with the thick fog on the ground. I probably won't be nervous to fly again but I was definitely scared for a solid 10 minutes or so. I'm a pretty good flyer but turbulence can unravel me pretty quickly! Unless we have to go to England again in December, I think our next flight will be the 10 hour one home to Atlanta for the holidays! The length of that one is the only thing that makes me nervous!

Right now I am wondering if it is too early to open a beer? It's 5:30pm on a Friday so that should be okay, right?? Deaner is at the airport picking up a friend of his from college who lives in Rome. I'm making pulled chicken BBQ for dinner with a vinegar BBQ sauce and my mouth is watering for it already!! I hope that everyone has a great weekend! I promise to be better about writing next week!

Do not feel bad...Mean look at me I have been a little out of the blogging world with classes and the move.
Have a good weekend!

Have I mentioned how jealous I am of you that you go to England often? I love that place! I was over there for awhile for school and it's so amazing!
