Time flies! Happy Anniversary England!

It is hard to believe that my little family has been in England for a year now. We flew in to Heathrow full of excitement and anticipation of living in a new country. Keys to our new home tucked in our bags ready for the adventure to begin. A year on, we have adapted to our new home. Settled into our village routine. Discovered so much history. Welcomed a dog into our family. Navigated many roundabouts on the road of life. We look forward to more travel, adventure, family time and the odd pub lunch! Now if the Aussies could win just one Test Match that would top off our year!

London Eye

We spent the weekend reflecting on our year. We popped into London for the day on Saturday.

Had a lovely time at the National Portrait Gallery.

Love the free museums and galleries of London!

We couldn't help but stop by China Town.


Reminisce our Shanghai life with a dumpling... 


Or two...

Well ok...we may have partaken in a hot and tasty Szechuan feast as well....

Then we went for a walk, soaked up the spirit of London.

Big Ben

We watched the cranes move and slowly change the skyline of this fabulous city, new buildings going up next to old. Moving forward, just as we are, our lives evolving as we continue our UK adventure. 


We rounded off the weekend with a traditional Sunday roast, sitting out in our backyard in the glorious sunshine. We raised our glasses "Cheers England, thanks for a great year".


  1. Has it been a whole year? Very hard to believe.
    You sound very settled there.
    The art galleries and museums are hard to beat aren't they? They're always on our "to do" list on our rare trips to London.
    And the food....makes my mouth water.
    Great photos too Robyn. Loved the blog.
