Knock knock…anyone there? I’m ba-ack!
I apologise for the delay. After a good period of regular posts I have barely done anything this past week. I have been busy, with university, another round of monitoring at St Paul’s and other stuff. Also, this weekend Michael’s parents are visiting. That means a weekend of sightseeing and hosting…so won’t be online much.
They arrived on Thursday and after the monitoring sessions I went to where they were having lunch before making our way home.
Friday we went to a pub for dinner after university and then went to watch Jersey Boys.
Today we went to Portobello Market and then to the Science Museum. We should cook at home tonight.
How is the experience? I am finding it a bit overwhelming. Having Michael’s parents here make me realise even more the cultural differences there are. I realise that the way we treat our parents is quite different between the two of us. I think I have a more direct approach with my mother, while he is more of a peacemaker kind of person who goes all out to make them happy. To me, probably as I only left home one year ago, that is quite far out in left or right field…I don’t exactly understand it. It is not only in this thing, but in numerous other subtle things that are said and done…I realise that things that to me are impolite to them are quite OK, and probably vice-versa. Sometimes this causes a bit of stress I am sure.
I know this blog is called rantings from afar…but I don’t want to rant today :). So I will stop here 🙂
Love you all 😉
