New Beginnings

So my friend has moved to Chicago from the UK and gosh am I so excited for her! Im sharing her first blog with you…


It’s taken 3 weeks for things to finally start calming down after moving to Chicago! So here’s a rather succinct post about how it went down…

After 8 and a half hours flight time, we finally touch down in the USA and it had been snowing.


We grab a cab into the city and quickly check-in at our temporary hotel accommodation before making our way to the bank. Fast-forward a few hours of faffing and we leave with a shiny blue debit card each. Success!

      I’ll see about making it home for it depending on dates and stuff – would be a fun catch-up! Can’t believe you’re gonna be an auntie too – so exciting! I love my nephew to death even though really he doesn’t even know me cos he’s too young lol It’s one of the best things ever though :)

    Ha! I’d love a Falk-Egg table – E-25 baby! ;)

    Long story short, I was a developer in UK and the US support team was struggling as there was no-one with coding knowledge of the system there. They also needed a business analyst in the US so they offered John that job – so here we are! :D Not sitting on the counters anymore! The last of our furniture has literally arrived today so good times ahead! :)
