I'm Coming Home

This is past-Allison...the Canuck girl who's been away in the UK for a week, but hasn't actually experienced that yet because I'm still in Canada typing this post to be scheduled. So when you read this I will be likely on a bus, plane or taxi coming home from my (hopefully) fabulous holiday in Bath, England.

No one suggested a topic for this week so I'm going to declare this week a free form topic. It's hard for me to write about stuff that will still be talked about in a week's time.

I know this is a week old (when you guys read it) but during my last shift at work, before I left for a week, my co-worker and I did a lot of work - it was raining so we just cleaned the whole store. At the end of the shift she drew a little comic strip about our afternoon:

It was pouring rain, so we cleaned almost EVERYTHING!

Val cleaned out the syrup containers (what we use in hot chocolates and flavoured lattes).

We felt pretty good about our productive day, and then a lady spilled her tea on the floor :(
"I'm going on vacation tomorrow" was my mantra while I mopped it up.

We rewarded ourselves with pizza! Pizza has never tasted so good!
I hope you enjoyed that as much as I did. I know it's not our Transatlantic Super Squad comics - but still pretty awesome I'd say. I'll leave you with some random photos I found on my computer.

Not sure why I took a photo of myself eating a sandwich.
Crazy two-headed kitty!
Me and my cousin's son.
Probably a photo I took for this blog but never used...until now.

Sorry for this post - I just can't really think about what to write about that will matter in a week's time.


  1. Hehe. I love your comic. And your random photos. And I apologize for dumping my late post on top of your scheduled one. I fail at timeliness. And Tom appears to be dead again. And I think you come back today. Can't wait to hear about your trip. You haven't missed much around here.

  2. I am back! Dead Tom is Dead! I'm so tired...better comments later.

  3. I leave for a week and things fall apart around here! I noticed your blog is under construction. Oh my! I'll read your post tomorrow when my eyes aren't crossed. Such a long day!

  4. Yeah, someone I live with learned about my blog and I had a paranoid moment which involved archiving everything. It will be back to normal soon hopefully.

  5. Cool - I will slowly, but surely post about my trip. I think I'll break the posts up into days. I wrote in my journal every night so I have records of everything (almost) I did each day.

  6. Welcome home!! I can't wait to hear all about the trip. :)
