Promises Kept...

In January when I posted my Promises for the Year, one of my goals was to ride in a London cab. Only for the blog! (That's what I told Bill anyway)
Mother Pie used her motherly instincts and caught me in a little fib. I posted on my centerpiece a day early so that no one would miss me in the week that I was gone. I should have known that a Momma would know!
I had a lovely week in London with my sister, niece, and brother-n-law. We ate our way around the city, fish and chips and shepard's pie, we tasted our share of ale, stouts, and cider. We did the tourist thing; saw Queen's guard, the Tower, and the jewels, and did the ex-pat thing as well; learning our way around the back streets of Knightsbridge and Slone Square. I don't think we missed a single market... Y'all put us to shame in the neighborhood market area!



As different as cultures can be, no one will far from home with a Starbucks on every corner. Once the jet lag has worn off, I will get busy blogging again.



Y'all, thanks for stopping in!

Hi Sandi, you seem like you had a great time in London. There is nothing better than travelling and discovering other cultures and tastes. Thank you for your nice words.
