A Whole Lot of Nothing.

What a slack, slack blogger I have become - and I can't even use the 'I'm too busy' excuse, considering I've been a lady of leisure for the past five weeks. It's so surreal being back here, like nothing has changed and at the same time, so much has changed.

Of course I'm missing Jason and Oscar, but I suppose this is to be expected after just another separation. Five weeks down, who knows how much longer to go? The main problem with this Visa process, is that everything is a giant unknown. I have huge problems with the way that it is structured; perhaps I should save that for another blog entry - maybe when I have been approved (fingers crossed!) just in case! I'm lucky to be able to put my UK life on hold to wait around for this, but my patience is already starting to wear thin. At this point, I will be lucky to get back in April.

I've been quite out of it, trying to keep busy with catch-ups, reading, relaxing and distracting myself. So tell me... what have I missed?

We've also introduced a new member to our family back home. Meet Bailey!



We adopted Bailey from a rescue shelter when she was 12 weeks old. She's a beagle cross, and has the longest, lankiest legs that she doesn't quite know what to do with. She's been a perfect distraction for me, and is constantly making me laugh, being in her puppy phase. Bailey doesn't quite realise how long her legs actually are, and I've almost taught her to fetch.. occasionally. Or when she wants to.

Wow, you've been home for five weeks already? I swear time goes by faster every day!

Bailey is ADORABLE! She has the most precious face and I lover her markings. Puppies are so much fun :)

Operation Pink Herring said...

OMG PUPPY! That makes the waiting slightly more bearable, but geez... I cannot believe they make you wait that long. Actually, I can't believe you aren't allowed to do this through the Aussie embassy in London.

Ditto to what Operation Pink Herring said. It seems really ridiculous that this can't be done while still in England. You would think that would be one of the embassy's main jobs.

Anyway, your dog is so cute! What a wonderful critter to help you while away the time.

How, praytell, did you structure your return flight? I mean...if you flew over on a round-trip ticket, what date did you say you were going to return? And you'll just pay the fee to change it to...whatever it ends up being?

She is so cute! I love how puppies have those big heads and paws while their bodies are still so small and wee! Like little pea-bodies!

Katie said...

Bailey is so cute - I love when they haven't quite grown into their legs yet! :P Good luck with the VISA thing - It sucks that you have to do it through Australia.

Jessy said...

awww Bailey is so cute! Hopefully you will get your new visa soon and will be on your way to the UK again! That totally sucks that they make you wait that long. At the very least they should let you wait in London, so that way you don't have to put your life on hold and buy plane tickets and the like.

Good luck with your visa!

What a cutie!

Michelle said...

Bailey looks gorgeous! I'm so jealous.

Run For Life said...

She is SO adorable!!! I hope the visa comes soon.

The Casual Perfectionist said...

Yay! A post from you! And, a puppy! She's so cute! (And, now I've used my daily allotted amount of exclamatory sentences.) ;)

velocibadgergirl said...

Oh, my heart! Welcome, Bailey :D

Kerri Anne said...

Bailey is ADORABLE. Big hugs.

Baily is super duper cute! I think she might have German Shorthair Pointer in her too!!

It's good to "hear" from you, Aly. Hope you're well.
