And I’m back.
A very whizzy weekend of good things, a Sunday of packing mania, a Monday of Luton loveliness, and now I’m back in the bosom of the fam, bossing around my siblings, eating far too much yumminess and drinking nigh on gallons of tea. It’s nice to be back :-).
The weekend with Peachy was lovely – I showed her my pad, my village, the neighbour’s parkland….
And my second home…
Then we travelled into London…
We were based at a kickass hostel in Bayswater (cheap, clean, easy to get to and from – I recommend!)….
We managed to NOT get into Westminster Abbey again – something of a theme with us, I regret to say!
Had a funfilled trip on the London Eye (I had a minor vertigo moment, haha, but more or less enjoyed the whole time!)….
Wandered around London in the balmy twilight….
Ate fish and chips….(YUM)….
Then said goodbye (Take care Peachy, and come see me again soon, please!)…
And on Sunday I got to go to the park with Hoti. Ice cream and ducklings and chat and anecdotes and banter….Yay! (And good luck in Yemen, old thing!)….
And now I’m back and ready for a good old time in Scotland. Well, I hope it’s a good time! More to follow, I’m sure.
Love, as always,
PS It is the funniest (and potentially the geekiest) thing – whenever all three of us are home on a weeknight, we form what we call the laptop club – S and P and I take over the dining room, and drink tea, chat, relax, check forums, blog, record stupid ass ringtones, call people, find music, read, watch TV, whatever…it’s really sweet, and it’s what we’re doing right now. Glamorous it may never be, but it sure feels good to be home!
