LONDON OBSERVATIONS

It has been almost three weeks since I’ve been back from London. It took me one week to recover from jet lag, which I’ve been told is ridiculous and abnormal. Meh. I’ve been called worse. Meanwhile, I’ve been reflecting on the many things we experienced whether on purpose or accidentally. There were some things I … Continue reading LONDON OBSERVATIONS

LONDON DAY SEVEN: THE DISAPPEARING POST

Oh my GOODNESS! I was just glancing back through the London posts to try to remember what we did when. There is NO POST FOR DAY SEVEN! WTF?? I KNOW I wrote about Day 7. It was all about Hampton Court. The all day adventure. Then, the return to the pub (our home away from … Continue reading LONDON DAY SEVEN: THE DISAPPEARING POST

LONDON DAY EIGHT: THE SHOPPING CURSE

On our last day, we really felt the pressure to accomplish some of the things we hadn't yet. Therefore, we set off to the Borough Market, which was closed the first time we tried, in order to get the infamous grilled cheese sandwich. And oh, what a sandwich it was. The cook dumped in mounds … Continue reading LONDON DAY EIGHT: THE SHOPPING CURSE

LONDON DAY SIX: WAR AND PEACE

I'm proud to say we once again braved the Tube and ended up exactly where we were going. Kensington Palace. This was the childhood home of Queen Victoria and the home of William and Mary. Currently, it also plays host to the Fashion Rules exhibit, which traces the history of the clothing worn by Queen … Continue reading LONDON DAY SIX: WAR AND PEACE

LONDON DAY FIVE: THE WORLD’S A STAGE

UPDATE 1: Sorry - I am updating with photos and more details as I get a chance. This is going to be short and sweet. I'll add details later as it is WAY past my bedtime and we have a huge day tomorrow. This morning, or more like noonish, we went to Buckingham Palace. State … Continue reading LONDON DAY FIVE: THE WORLD’S A STAGE

LONDON DAY FOUR: MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR

Exhaustion hit last night, so when some sort of alarm went off at 1:45 AM that quickly turned off again, I couldn't be bothered. Like a cat in a bath, Sandy instantly levitated from the bed, evidently concerned about fire or some such and kept talking to me and waking me back up until I … Continue reading LONDON DAY FOUR: MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR

LONDON DAY THREE: HARRY POTTER AND THE EMPTY MARKET

The A/C in our room was fixed last night, which resulted in us huddled in our respective beds and suffering temperatures equivalent to a meat locker. We buried ourselves under every blanket available, afraid to touch the controls lest we spend another night in the 5th circle of hell. Sandy caved in during the wee … Continue reading LONDON DAY THREE: HARRY POTTER AND THE EMPTY MARKET

LONDON DAY TWO: THE TOWER

Sandy and I were tired enough last night to go to sleep in a room that was approximately 80 degrees last night. Not exaggerating. Dave and Amy were expected by 9:30 AM to join us on a trip to The Tower. They were also responsible for deciding what sort of Tube tickets we needed for … Continue reading LONDON DAY TWO: THE TOWER

LONDON DAY ONE: LET THE FOOD AND BEVERAGES BEGIN

Sandy and I met at the airport around 7:00 at DFW Terminal D and after passing through security with no fatalities, made our way to the Admiral's Club. There we enjoyed a couple of drinks - Sandy a Sprite and me two glasses of wine - until we made our way to the plane. We … Continue reading LONDON DAY ONE: LET THE FOOD AND BEVERAGES BEGIN

DEPARTURES

Counting down the days until Sandy and I depart Terminal D at DFW for Heathrow. First, an update from the last post. (For those totally disinterested in my estrogen count, please move on to the next paragraph.) The gel that would keep me from having headaches and hot flashes can take a month to kick in, which should be … Continue reading DEPARTURES
