Life in England is far cry from the US, let along Vegas. There are so many things that way different! Rain, cell phone service, stores and restaurants not open past 7 or on Sundays, trees and grass... just about everything. I had my first encounter with a plumber last week. We had a pin hole in our en-suite bathroom tap, as they call it here. After calling the first plumber to come look at it to confirm for our landlords, it took 2 weeks for the next one to come fix it. It then took 3 hours for him to replace the faucet. Not a fancy faucet, just a typical run of the mill faucet. Crazy! The hubs just kept asking me how it took so long and I honestly didn't have an answer. Besides the 15 minute personal call he made half way into it, the guy seemed to be working the whole time. Oh well, I guess we can all slow down from time to time. Right?
My kids have discovered the wonderment of snails since we've been here. They think they are the coolest things ever. We see snail slime all over the place while we walk to the bus stop and sometimes after a rain will catch a little guy on his way or hanging out. They try to collect empty shells when they can and some are pretty neat. But even the snails, I swear, are slower!
