I've had England on the brain for a while now. Between catching up with my BFF Sara in Florida (and I promise, I will eventually get my act together and blog about my trip more than once a week, otherwise we'll be here FOREVER), a friend from Brewery Land who now lives in London and posts pictures of his walk to work every day, all the London-filled promos for the upcoming half season of Doctor Who, and the news last week that a slightly questionable Chinese airline is offering return flights from Sydney to London for $1,400? My brain has turned into this:
Why? Because last week, my little brother, C, announced that he's moving to London for two years for work from July. Which is very exciting, and made me equal parts "OMG, ANOTHER REASON TO VISIT ENGLAND AGAIN!!!!" and "OH GOD, PLEASE DON'T LEAVE ME TO DEAL WITH THE PARENTALS AND THEIR TECHNOLOGY QUESTIONS ALONE..." (Hi, Mum...)
I have no idea when it's going to happen. But at some point in the next year or so? I'm going to indulge my brain and answer its call.
And you can guarantee that I'm going to go here:
And also here:
(That's the Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff, in case you're also flailing with excitement about the thought of visiting the TARDIS)
And probably a castle or 500, because let's be honest - this is me we're talking about...
Does your brain ever get "HEY, YOU. Go here now, 'kay?" on you? Please tell me it does.
