We have officially been living in London for six months and even though we returned to Vancouver back in May for Got Craft, I can’t believe it has been that long. Like Becka mentioned in her ‘past 6 months post’, things have definitely taken longer to fall into place then we had expected. There has been no tears, but we have good days and those where we wonder what in the world we are doing over here. Our first goal is to stay here for one year and then reevaluate our next steps.
That being said, we do love it here. It’s London! What’s not to love? There is so much to do here and so much to see. Not to mention that the rest of Europe is at our door step! Twitter and facebook have definitely helped quench the homesickness and we have already had a great stream of house guests come through chez Andrea + Robert. We have also met some fantastic new friends and the craft community here has been so welcoming. Not everybody has this opportunity and we are truly lucky to be able to live and work in both countries.
I, like Becka, is happy we made the decision to come here, but I don’t see it as home quite yet. The next six months will be filled with mini-breaks and field trips, more house guests, Got Craft UK and documenting more of our adventures! I’m actually a bit back-logged with our field trip posts, so I hope you are enjoying them.
