England: Part II

My mum likes to say that “life moves slower in England.” The English people have gone through a lot throughout history. However, they just keep carrying on.

In England I put my cell down. I used my laptop less. I walked or took the bus. And there were a lot of tea and biscuits. My mum and I stopped by some local Liverpool landmarks. We visited Lord Derby’s Estate (Think Downton Abby), took a tour of the English gardens, visited downtown, and the Liverpool cathedral.

Thank you, Mum for letting me go to England with you last year and for reminding me to slow down a bit.

Lessons from mum:

1) Put the phone and computer down
2) Don’t talk about politics All. The. Time.
3) Don’t swear
4) Saying “shit” isn’t really swearing…
5) Ham sandwiches on a blam cake with a packet of Quavers is the perfect lunch

“Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that if the British Empire and its Commonwealth should last a thousand years, men will still say: This was their finest hour”. – Sir Winston Churchill
