overcast 5 °C

Well its now around noon on thursday, and ive just awoken from a jet lagged sleep. This keyboard is a little wonky, you never actaully think that keyboards in other countries are laid out differently, but they are and it takes some getting use too!!

So my flight to london, wow what a trek. I left pearson airport bound for halifax and so what i thought would be a short layover to pick up passengers (we weren't even leaving the plane). We arrived and waited, and waited and waited in our seats, noone was boarding. The captain tells us that theres a problem with the hydraulics, that there will be a delay, around an hour. An hour passes, it will be a little longer he says. Finally after 3 hours he tells us that we will have to switch planes, but of course the other plane isn't there yet so we have to wait. A total of 6 hours waiting on the plane in Halifax!!! Basically we left when we were to arrive in London!!!! I tried calling Richard from some blokes cell, but he had already left and didn't hear the phone, so of course he waited all that time too. Never fly with Zoom Airlines!!!

When I arrived in London, I was tired and needed a ciggerette something fierce!!! we ate a quick meal at McD's (no doubt lol) and hopped on a train bound for Southampton. Since it was getting dark, I didnt get to see too much. But it looked lovely from what I did see! Just before we got off the train, an english woman asked where we were coming from with all the luggage, when i said the airport she of course asked, "Are you American?" and so it begins. lol. But she was nice, wanted to know what my family thought of me moving over here, lol. She wished us best of luck, asked Richard why he didn't get me flowers! and then said something that will probably always stick with me, she said, "Welcome to England dear".
