Hello Again!

Finally I'm back, I've had to take a two week hiatus, it seems, because a lot of things happened. The first week we were still adjusting to London time (since we were still a little jet lagged), and the second my sister and I visited our cousins (and they visited us).

So in short it's been "busy" not to mention my muse has run away for those two weeks, which wasn't quite that big of a deal, because I think she really needed that holiday. She's come back (finally) and is ready and rearing to go. So you probably won't hear from me, for a little while, because she's pushing me to continue the story.

At the moment, all I can say is that chapter 8 will soon be done and perhaps by the end of the week I'll be done with chapter 10 or so, we'll see, if I'm not distracted, maybe it could happen.

Sorry for the short update, I can't really say anymore on the subject, because I may just be giving everything away. So be good for now. ^^

Update Time - Another Hiatus

Hello everybody! As you can tell from the title, I will be on another hiatus. It seems my muse has left me floundering in the deep, with no raft, and the shore is like three hours away, so I'm going to have to take some more time off to finally swim back to shore. Yes I'm back from holiday, not that you lot care. I've had some great R&R but now it's time to get back to the real world, and well...let's just say, I'm still a bit jet lagged (it's harder to adjust to the time difference when you travel east).

So what happened on holiday? Well I've told you everything important in the last few posts of this blog, but I'll just recall it in this one. On Sunday, as we were still adjusting to the new environment, we went to church, and I could barely understand the mass (it was in Spanish, and no amount of Spanish lessons could have helped). Monday was a day of R&R, we went to the beach, we swam in the pool and bought a few food stuff from Walmart (not that I'm advertising). Tuesday we started to do some real stuff, we went parasailing, and saw the entire coast line of the "Zona Hoteles" of Cancun. It was marvellous (not to mention we were above the sea, so we could see sting rays, turtles and all sorts of stuff that happens at sea.

Wednesday was the best...and possibly the worst. We swam with dolphins, as you know. It was such an epic experience, that I still can't believe I did it, and when I say the worst, it is because, I think I got infected by the pool water the dolphins were in, because I got a rash and noticed it a few hours later, luckily it's not too bad, and with time it will go away, but it was quite annoying. The next day, we went to Xichen Itza, and it was so awesome!! I loved the Mayan culture, and although the hype of 2012 is gone, it was still amazing to learn about the Maya's traditions, like their numerical system and their use of the stars to calculate rain and other stuff. It was eye opening.

Friday was another day of R&R because the next day, Saturday, was the day we set off. Leading me on to the next point. It was such a long day, that day. Our flight left at 7pm (approx.) and my mum was on standby, so we had to wait around six hours to get her booked on the flight. So I was pretty much wasting the battery of my iPad the entire time. When we finally did get on the plane, I didn't sleep like everyone else did, I watched movies the entire flight (not to mention I watched The Hunger Games: Catching Fire for the second time, on the plane). So I pretty much messed up my entire body clock, and when we arrived at Gatwick, I was flagging the entire time. I'm not even sorry for sleeping on the Virgin Crew coach, on our way to Heathrow, to get home. In fact, I didn't sleep until Sunday night, so I pretty much stayed up approximately for 24 hours.

Now, it's just getting used to British time, because I am still fully sleeping at around 2am, and waking up at 11am. Of course today is different. Today I was woken up at 9:30am, because we are getting our windows replaced. FINALLY!!!! Our double glazed windows are old, and so now our dad has finally got them to be changed. So I had to get up early to ease his mind, these are strange men, and we don't know what they're capable of, so my sister and I are lookouts for the day.

That's it for now. I'll get back to all of you when I do finally get back on track with the story. So over and out. ^^
