Weekend: ENGLAND!

I can't believe it's already the 2nd of December! That means my Monday morning started with 2 pieces of my advent calendar chocolate bar! Small things!

I have to say that my first weekend in England feels more like a week, just because I managed to get so much done. I'm all cobwebby and dusty at the moment as I've spent today running up and down into the attic, trying to clear out some of my things! I feel insanely energised after going to bed really early last night after a long weekend! But this pile that I need to sort out makes me kind of feel exhausted!

Shop Local

I have some incredibly talented friends, not only are they knock outs on skates, but they're industrious little bees that sell amazing products.

If you have access to the internet, or find yourself lucky enough to be in or around Sheffield, you should check them out.




I'm sat at my desk at school now and it feels like I've hardly been away, despite spending nearly 3 weeks back in England. Above are the pictures of my room when I walked in shattered on Saturday night, it would appear that without me there Nick had far too much time on his hands.

The month started brilliantly with some skiing at High One although alot of the time was spent on my behind in the snow, wallowing about the lack of skills I have when it comes to skiing. I blame roller derby and my dodgy knees for that!

Merry Late Christmas

I've never celebrated Christmas in February before, but as I was away for Christmas this year we decided to celebrate it while I was home.

Christmas in Busan was great, I was surrounded by new friends and we managed to nearly get our hands on everything that makes a traditional English festive dinner. But, it was made even better knowing that I had the excuse to celebrate it again when I got home.

Weekend: Food and Family

Well I'm sat keeping an eye on the bits I've been trying to sell on ebay as my last weekend in the UK draws to an end. I don't feel ready to go back to Busan yet, there's so much left to do and still so many people that I haven't had the chance to catch up with. But, it was a busy one, starting with some dentist work on Friday morning, not fun, especially when your dentist has bad breath.

Later on Friday I went into Sheffield to meet some of my friends I used to work with at the job before I left for Korea. It was so nice to see them again but it felt like I'd hardly been away. Every pay day Friday we used to get our gladrags on and go out.

The White Rabbit and Cocoa Wonderland

On Wednesday I got in the car and drove down to Nottingham to meet up with my friend Hannah. Hannah and I went to Nottingham Trent University together from 2005-2008 (it makes me feel so old when I say that).

Wreck It Ralph

Wreck it Ralph

So on Tuesday I was allowed to join the Coppard clan in their daily festivities. I met Eleanor, aka Nicky Fury, and her husband through roller derby and they have three of the funniest boys that I know.

On skates Fury is one big ball of ferociousness who it's better to have on your side or to keep out of the way of. Once she's traded her skates for DMs I think it's still best not to wind her up, a lesson her kids are yet to learn, but it does lead to hilarity for observers.

As it was half term, I went along with her to the cinema to watch a film called Wreck It Ralph, which I'd never heard of, so had absolutely no expectations of it, but it was amazing!

Our Weekend: Food Diary

All I seem to have done since I've been in England is eat, eat, eat. I swear that I haven't heard my stomach rumble since the plane touched ground. This weekend has been a particularly food packed one.

On Thursday, after I had my hair cut, we went to St Paul's hotel and had one of their amazing cream teas. This comes with cucumber, salmon and cream cheese and ham and tomato sandwiches, scones with fresh cream and a small mix of cakes. Delicious.

On Friday morning, feeling the effects of all the food, we decided to go for a walk around Clumber Park's lake. It's about a three mile walk and took just over an hour, but on the way home, to reward ourselves, we called in at the Old School Tea Rooms and I had a ploughman's lunch.

Happy Birthday Millie

Happy Valentine's day everyone! I decided to eat chocolate for my breakfast this morning because, a. I'm not in England for long and there's not much time to fit in good chocolate, and b. I haven't been given any chocolates for Valentine's day as Nick is thousands of miles across the planet.

Today I'm off to get my hair cut and have cream tea. Exciting.

Yesterday it snowed lots, but it didn't stop us going to a restaurant to celebrate Millie's 22nd birthday after she got back from university. Happy Birthday Millie!
