The Holiday to Great Britain

I am heading to England tomorrow; to the fields of sheep, the land of Guiness, and the birthplace of Hugh Grant, and the home of bad teeth. I love how my friend Kelle describes my England trip. She tells me that she envisions that I am Cameron Diaz in the movie "The Holiday" where I am in the middle of no where with only sheeps and pubs around me. That pretty much is spot on (learning to speak like a Brit).


You see, on my Holiday, I will be spending it with my sister, her fiance, and my niece and nephew (to see how cute they are, see previous post). It's funny whenever I tell someone I am heading to England they envision London and all the wonderful sightseeing. Yes, I will be spending a few days in London, but most of the time will be spent in the farmlands outside of Wales. My sister owns a pub and they live upstairs from the pub, very convenient! This pub is located in the remote area of Herefordshire. I decided to see just how remote this place is so I logged on to Google Earth to get a better idea. God Bless Google Earth!! So I put in the address and it flew me there. Can anyone say "Big Brother"? It really is amazing and kind of creepy. As it was getting closer to their town there was nothing except big square patches of green. I am not kidding!! In the middle of all these square patches laid a pub. But in that pub there lays my beautiful neice, my adorable nephew, and my wonderful sister. So as much as I may be Cameron Diaz from the "Holiday" ( although I already have my Jude Law), I will be relishing in the joy of being with my family. I will chalk one up for experience.

I will try to post when I am out there but if I don't get a chance, I will be back on August 1 and ready to see what has been happening over here in the good ol' USA. Miss you all!

I KNOW you're gunna have a great time, and yes...that's exactly how I picture it! Now, I wanna go back and watch that movie again and picture you as Cameron Diaz. :o) Ride a trolly for me...buy a hat at Harrods and wear it proudly. Wave to Big Ben and send him my love.
