Brief visit back in England

Quick journey to England and back

This weekend I arose at an un-earthly hour, jumped onto the Metro to commute across the city, and boarded an early morning plane to England. The reason behind this voyage was that it was one of my best friend’s 21st Birthday Masquerade Ball! So before heading down to the Midlands to join my friends, I was able to have lunch at home in Liverpool, see my cat and family, and then hop onto another train. Phew. I feel tired just thinking about it! We had all donned on our best dresses and suites, and danced the night away! Because it was a masquerade ball, as well as having our own individual masks, my friends had also organised having masks of the birthday girl made, so our entrance encompassed us walking into the venue all wearing a mask of her face – what a surprise! I had an amazing time. It was wonderful to see all my friends again, some I haven’t seen since March! Below are a few pictures from the night. Alas, back to the world of Au Pairing in Paris!
