AA was only about 10 days ago, but now it seems longer. Time is such a strange thing! I had never been to AA or Botcon before but always wanted to go. It didn't disappoint. Highlights included meeting everyone and hanging out, spending hours fossicking through TFs on sale, old and new, finding and buying some of my favourite TF's, art workshops (in which I think some vague improvement wasn't my imagination) and watching old and new TF episodes.

I also had fun watching artists work and listening in on conversations - though I was rather shy about talking myself as I'm not knowledgeable on comics and was afraid of a blank expression appearing when some poignant reference was made (!) but I did get some lovely pics signed, including this one:

Can't believe I left the UK a week ago. Time has just seemed weird and totally screwed up the last week and now I seem to be unwell: headache, sore throat, swollen glands, hot, achy. Eeerrgh. Hoped I could avoid this on return this time - but noooo ...

Soooo - to continue with the trip blog - just over a week after getting to the UK I got the train to York. There I remained for the rest of the weekend, and got to spend time with the awesome [livejournal.com profile] ultharkitty and [livejournal.com profile] aniay. It was great wandering around the town again, having lunch and talking tranformers (lots of TFs.) And I got the most lovely presents from both my friends who are so talented at making things:

Recently, I went on a trip to the UK. I got back this week, had one day to recover before work, decided at the last moment I'd write a fic for [livejournal.com profile] robotbigbang and spent the last few days either working, writing, or tired as all hell! But the first draft of the fic got posted. It was a nice distraction which eliminated (mostly) the depression of being back. I made it to the weekend!

I try and go to the UK about once a year. I love it there. It is still my home. This trip was timed to culminate in AA - but I went other places first. I'll post photos etc in stages. Including AA ones of course!

The first week was spent in the south of England, where I grew up. I was in Devon for a few days, at a family party. There were over 30 family members there - none of whom I ever see normally, all of whom I get on with really well. My uncles had all his muso friends there too and had rigged up a stage in a field where everyone camped as well as partying. It was awesome - even if I was a bit hazy from the jetlag.
