Back in the UK

Well, we've been back in the UK for a few days now and we're starting to settle in.

I've been meaning to write a blog post about the move, but there's just been so much going on and it's been so overwhelming, that it's been difficult even to know when to start.

The flight was a little bit of adventure. Our first flight from Greenville to Philly was about 30 minutes late taking off, and with only a 90 minute layover, I was bricking it as to whether we'd make our connecting flight.

As it was, I thought we'd timed it perfectly. We arrived at the gate just as they announced boarding. I thought it was awesome... no waiting around, just straight off one plane and only to the other.

... we ended up stuck on the tarmac for nearly an hour and a half. The plane backed away from the gate, turned towards the runway...then went right back to the gate. 15 minutes later the door opens and two TSA agents get on and escort some guy off...then we had to wait the better part of two hours for them to find the guy's luggage and take it off the plane.

Worst part? They wouldn't tell us who the guy was or why he'd been kicked off the flight (although knowing the TSA, he probably just had the word 'gun' in his name somewhere.)

Anyway, I'll probably write more later when we get properly settled and I stop feeling like I'm going to wake up any minute and find myself back in the states.
