As you probably know, I’m currently on vacation in the UK, visiting the boyfriend. It’s nice to be away for a little bit. While I managed fairly well during my two weeks alone at the office, it was starting to get a bit much for me – I’m not quite back to being entirely healthy and I still tire quickly. So, now I’m enjoying two weeks off work, with nothing to do.
Which, admittedly, gets a little boring at times. I miss my own stuff when I’m away on vacation. Especially since the boyfriend has to be working (he’s in the midst of a huge project at work, and can’t really get any time off), since it means I’m left on my own a lot. My laptop is with me of course, but it has some… issues. And leaves me unable to do a lot of the things I’d like to do.
On the whole though, my trip is nice so far. I arrived Friday evening, and on Saturday we went to a big yearly family get-together that they apparently try to hold every year. It was both scary and fun, meeting his 30 (or so) closest relatives. I’ve not heard anything back yet that they all hated me… So I guess that’s a good sign?
Other things on the agenda is to go out for a meal with his best friend and his girlfriend. They’re very close, and the boyfriend keeps joking that if B doesn’t approve of me, we’re obviously done. So, no pressure!
We’re also going to go to his parents for dinner on Saturday, and have been considering taking them to the cinema one night. But we’ll see what we end up doing I guess. Might meet his mom for lunch one day while the boyfriend is at work, but have to gain the courage to do so. Don’t get me wrong, she’s lovely and very nice. I’m just not good with chitchat and feel very shy about meeting someone one-on-one. At the same time… If I’m going to move here eventually, it’d be nice to have a good connection with his family.
Well, that’s my random ramblings for now…
