I’m so happy that I am meeting new friends, to share our stories with one another. I asked Katie’s mom Vanessa about the UK. She writes a lot of things I enjoyed reading. I wanted to share them with you. Read below. I’m looking forward to the video, which I hope to post here. Thank you Katie and Vanessa!
I have added links to Katie’s website and placed your website on there, we also know Kay and Lynzee who you have in your links. yes i think i agree with you. most of my family have NF.my nan and mum had it (she has sadly passed from breast cancer), two of my aunties have it, I have it, as well as my sister, her two children and my son George.
Very strong family history. Well what can i tell you about the UK, Katie has made you a little video of some of the sites she will try to send it to you tomorrow.
We drive on the left side of the road here, the driver seats on the right side of the car and most of the cars are manuals, where you have to change the gears your self, (i drive automatic though cos I’m lazy). We have some Very lovely country side views.
London has some cool places to visit, Buckingham place, tower of London, St Paul’s cathedral, fantastic west end shows in big posh theatres, if you get to act in the west end you know you have made it. I used to live in London and its very fast paste. probably equivalent to New york, and the living situation is the same, if your rich you could have a nice place to live, but if not its not so great to live in London.
I now live in Essex just 40 Min’s from London and its OK here, the kids all go to nice schools we have some lovely countryside and our town centre is pretty cool. I think your town centre is called downtown.
I don’t think us Brits seem as happy as you guys in the US, i have visited many times and you guys have so much faith and always seem to be smiling, (this is good)
I can give you a little run down on the difference in some of our words, here goes
Truck = Lorry
Diaper = Nappy
Pacifier = Dummy
Candy = Sweets
Cell phone = Mobile Phone
Gas = Petrol.
Chips = Chrisps
Fries = Chips
Pants = Trousers
That’s all i can think of for now, Our laws are a little different also, Our Kids finish school at 16, you can drink alcohol at 18. Not Allowed to talk on your phone while your driving.
When i think of some more stuff i will let you know.
I hope you are having a good day
Vanessa & Katie xxx
