Mum in London

I was so blessed that my lovely Mom came to visit me! She arrived on American Mother's Day (different date than in England), and was here for her 65th Birthday! What a lucky girl I am to spend such days with her. I traveled to Heathrow to 'pick her up' by which I mean I... Continue Reading →

Spring in London

Well, I'm catching up on some blog posts here so bear with me. Yes, I AM posting about this past spring (and early summer) now in August. A lot has happened since April! A visit from my mom, a brief romance that led to a friendship, a couple out of town jaunts and lots of... Continue Reading →

I had such fun with them! The first weekend we ended up walking 20 miles! Take... Continue Reading →

Broadway Market

Saturdays in Hackney you can head towards London Fields and go to Broadway Market! I've been trying to keep my step count up on the weekends so I've been making an effort to get out and walk to things I want to do and then I'll take public transport back (if it's far and if... Continue Reading →

Commuting Part II

Commuting has been an interesting challenge. Don't get me wrong, I'm thrilled I don't have to drive. (If you have ever commuted to work in Los Angeles you'll understand why!) I live in a spot that's not terribly close to a tube station. It's 15 minutes walk one direction (OLD STREET) or 20 minutes to... Continue Reading →
