How did I end up here?

Whoa! Wait, how did I find myself here?

Well, when your husband's twitter followers more than triple in the matter of a few hours, people take notice and start to ask questions...

Everything happened so quickly. The phone call, the offer, the signing and the announcement, all in a matter of a few days. I wasn't ready for it. I wasn't yet prepared for everyone to find out. But when your husband has chosen a career that puts him in the public eye, sometimes that choice isn't yours to make.

And so we started to tell family and close friends, the planning begun and then when the visas was finally secured and the excitement level rose to an all-time high, we couldn't hide it any longer and I eventually told my work. We told them that a new adventure is awaiting us - one in the land of jumpers and crisps, loos and mobiles, castles and countrysides, in Nottingham, England!

While I won't be joining the Mr for a few weeks, I am so excited for the new adventure that await us across the pond, and I can't wait to share all about our new expat life!

Things are going to get exciting around here again...

Have you ever been to Nottingham? I'd love to hear your recommendations for things to see, eat, drink and do!
