This has been 10 years in the making, one of our goals for coming over to live in the UK in the first place.
The Citizenship Ceremony was in a grand room in the Wandsworth Council Chambers - beautiful wide marble staircase leading up to the council room, plush red leather seats with dark wooden floors.
The mayor of Wandsworth presented our certificates individually, shook our hands telling us to "Be successful!". Nice.
Photos were taken as we signed a register with a big picture of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and two British flags behind us.
No cups of tea with sandwiches or scones were served though. Actually, a beer would have sufficed. But that's ok, Austin and I went out for a DATE afterwards anyway - thought our 'Britishness' was worth celebrating.
How wonderful it is to catch up with my husband properly, it feels like such a long time since we've sat down together just the two of us for a chat.
Communication is good. Really good.
It makes us stronger, even more united.
Thanks Aunty Gretchie for babysitting The Three Musketeers! X
As I sat here and typed, this happened...
Whoops...! Better go put him to bed I guess. Dear wee guy.
We are house-sitting at the moment for our friends while they're on holiday. They live in central London which is perfect for staying close to Austin's work.
The summer music festivals start tomorrow so it's rock'n'roll for us from here on... and hopefully not too many late nights!...
