Pumpkin Mocha Cake

Pumpkin Mocha Cake
I just barely managed to survive my first week back at work. Even though I’m doing the same job as I was in London I wanted to make a good impression with my new office mates in Connecticut. Last Monday I got up nice and early and had Alex drop me off at the train station. I had studied the train schedule the day before and bought my ticket in advance. So I get on the train at the right time and it’s only 2 stops and about 15 minutes to Stamford. After about 20 minutes has elapsed I start to panic! We haven’t made any stops! I whip out my phone and check Google Maps. The little blue dot shows that we’re all the way to Greenwich, which is already way past my stop. I ask the guy standing next to me where is the train going and he said, “oh this is the express to Grand Central”.

We’re finally moved into our new little house. It took a lot of work for us to get to this point but I’m really happy that we’re here now and that most of the hard work is behind us. The last two days were the first where I felt I could sit down and relax and feel like I was really at home.

This is my last scheduled post so I seriously hope by now that we have working internet in our new house. In a few days I have to start back at work. Luckily despite the move I’ll be doing the same job but just in a new location. It’s a relief that this is one thing I don’t have to stress out about. Well, I only have to stress out about my new commute (I have to learn how to drive!) and where the canteen is.

By the time this goes live I will have been in Connecticut for three days. I am most likely feeling completely overwhelmed and stressed out. I hope this is the last big move we’ll make for several years. I don’t reccomend moving to another continent for the sake of your sanity. Only other expats will understand the headaches and frustration of trying to fit your international life into forms meant for normal people (I don’t have a state to fill in and no, I don’t have a ten digit phone number)!

So the big day is only four days away! I can’t believe that it’s really happening and that I’m actually leaving London. It still doesn’t feel real. I don’t think it will sink in until we’ve moved into our new rental house. I’m so excited to go shopping and kit out our new place. It’s going to be expensive but I’m hoping to invest in some nice kitchen equipment that will last for many years.
