Six Weeks In

Well it's six weeks today since we stepped off that plane with no return booked, what a crazy, surreal, eye opening, amazing, overwhelming, bonkers experience and we have only just begun. 

Some days I feel life is very similar to England, then when someone hears my accent and I've given an overview of why we are here watching their reactions really brings home what a huge change we've made and how new everything still is.

When I see updates and photos on social media sites and have online and video convos with friends and family I think there will always be a tug on the heart strings and I hope there isn't anyone out there who thinks we've forgotten about them or England not for a second!


Today the youngest child, myself and the parents visited Zilker Park which is a recreational area in the heart of South Austin that comprises over 350 acres of publicly owned land, it has the following activities available: Barton Springs Pool, Botanical Gardens, miniature railway, hillside theatre, soccer and volleyball fields, polo field, nature centre, plus numerous historical markers and sites, concession stands, and picnic areas.

Then for dinner we went to Maudie's Milagro a Tex-Mex restaurant round the corner from our house with a great casual laid back vibe with an interesting mix of food choices and a licensed bar!
