Location: Hook Heath, Woking, UK

My first weekend in England i travelled to London to see my sister, Sally and it was fantastic. Went to Oxford Street to do some shopping because it was pouring down with rain and not the greatest site seeing weather. shopping was great though - january sales were on so got a heap of bargains.

Met my Dad's cousin, his wife and kids that Saturday night and was made to feel like family instantly. had a relaxing night in watching dvds with sally.

sunday was the day for site seeing although we didn't start until afternoon and still managed to fit heaps of sites in. started off at st pauls cathedral which was a beautiful old building but not that interesting. managed to catch a glimpse of an old fashioned bus going past though - there are only two apparently and purely for tourist attraction. we then went to tower bridge and that was spectacular - a brilliant blue and so much intricate detail with the coat of arms carved into one part of it. we crossed it by foot and then took a photo of ourselves in front of it. next was big ben - beautiful - gold and intricate detail - attached to the house of parliament and right next door, westminster abbey. we stopped for a tea and chocolate brownie and took in the sites. i noticed a big ferrais wheel whch turned out to be the london eye.

next stop was buckingham palace which we managed to reach as night started to full - beautiful night time photos but still need to revisit during the day to get a better look.

dinner was taken in a little cafe in piccadilly circus. had a chicken yiros - or kebab as they call them here - and it was delicious - took a photo of it if anyone wants to have a look when i return :-) hehe.

This past weekend i went into woking town centre which has a huge mall area and went with a girl - asia - pronounced asha who i met at playgroup - she is from poland and a really nice girl. this past wednesday at playgroup - met another polish girl - martina who is also really nice. anyway asia and i did a bit of a wander in the stores and talked a lot and then walked home. had the arvo to myself while the famiy went somewhere and enjoyed going on the computer while watching beethoven 3 in the background - was relaxing.

sunday was spent going to windsor with the family where we entered windsor castle - amazing. the grounds - the buildings - think its the first time ive ever seen a castle! got to see queen mary's doll house, the drawings room which had pictures by leonardo da vinci and photos of the queen from when she was a baby to now and the china museum - all the crockery the queen uses - and she uses it all - it all comes out for different occasions!

Location: Woking, England

hi all,
i have arrived in england and been here a few days now - feels like weeks because i'm already in a routine with the children im nannying. looked after the little baby by myself today while the mum took the other two children to the gym where they did a kinder gym class. was fun looking after her, putting her to bed and feeding her. tried to go for a walk with her but the garage door wouldn't open no matter how hard i tried and the pram was in there. turns out u have to pull the door towards u then turn. its funny how things just get assumed coz they just open the door like that all the time without thinking about it.

my flight here was not the greatest. got about 2 minutes into the air and i was sick as a dog - motion sickness. ended up vomitting and apparently looked faint coz the flight attendant put me on the oxygen tank and was thinking that i shouldn't go on to england but stop in hong kong - no way i was going to stay in hong kong! i told her it was just motion sickness and i survived it. although all i seemed to want to do was sleep on the plan because anything else made me feel sick but i found it nearly impossible to sleep. in the whole 24 hour flight i think i got maybe 6 hours sleep - but on and off like an hour here, an hour there. not pleasant!

the family i'm nannying are really nice. i'm so busy all the time but i'm glad coz it keeps my mind off missing home. in my 3 hours off during the day i have been going for walks to explore the area. its really beautiful here and you can get to different places by walking along labelled public footpaths that go down past canals and through tiny foresty like areas. its wicked!

will keep you all posted. hopefully i'll be able to put some photos on here now too.
