While I could pretend that I am "on top of things" with my blogging in addition to back to school chaos and all of that good stuff...I must make a confession. I wrote out my England trip posts as soon as I got back aka "when I wasn't consumed in the black hole known as my classroom now!"

|Big Ben ! Sorry if I am insulting your intelligence. I don't want to assume everybody knows this landmark.|
