I'm home now.
I am back to the real world after a week of book shopping, eating too much cake, and endless walking. Hopefully, the cake and the walking balanced each other out. I did buy quite a few books. Seventeen to be precise. I will write a blog post about them all if anyone is interested but writing about seventeen books is more than I was up to today. But oh, the book shopping in London is joyous.
The weather was very nice. It only rained for one evening though it was cloudy a few days. It was definitely chilly but that is fine as long as it stays dry. We spent a lot of time wandering through parks and people watching. That is some fine entertainment right there. Does anyone else make up whole scenarios for the people they see?
I want a walled English garden. I would take that house too if someone wants to give it to me.
For now I am back to the real world. It isn't all bad. I missed my kids and it is great to see them again and have them happy to see us. Though some of that might be down to the massive amounts of chocolate we brought back with us. It is the one thing they request. British chocolate is so much better than American chocolate. Between my books and the chocolate I am surprised the plane was able to take off.
I'll try to restrain myself from sharing every detail and every photograph from the whole vacation. It will be hard though.
I'm thinking next time we might need to go to Scotland. I have always wanted to go to Edinburgh. Something to dream about.
