Just Rockin' and Rollin' Through Life... Updates and Big News!

Well, it's certainly been a while since I've posted anything on this 'ere blog, and with good reason... my lovely US hubby and I are expecting our first child and life has quickly become a whirlwind of hormones, medical appointments and yet more government forms to complete!

I'm rather lucky that in my current area (sunny ol' Knoxville, TN) I was able to get accepted into a midwife led practice, so much of the care that I've been receiving has been pretty hands off and somewhat similar to the experience I would have had back in the UK (just for the record, I'm not the biggest fan of doctors who use preemptive interventions before all other options have been exhausted - just a personal preference, nothing more). But so far most days have been smooth sailing and we're now happily plodding along just past the 6 month mark. Lovely jubbley indeed.

I finally made my way back to school (online) and am nearing the end of my first semester at Penn Foster College, rocking and rolling through my Veterinary Technician Associates Degree with ever-growing enthusiasm (despite the challenges that the various smells and secretions lend to my over-stimulated pregnant senses!)

On the immigration front I'm getting ready to tackle the 'Lifting of Conditions' for my permanent residency status since I've now been married almost 2 years (Phew, where did that time go!?), as well as trying to work out how to renew my UK passport and UK drivers license from way across the big pond (spoiler alert: not simple or cheap, but totally doable and that's what counts!)

Anyway, look out for the next installments, as well as many more insights and reflections into my further adventures as a UK immigrant, settling down right here in the fabulous U S of A!

Glad to be back...
