such a lovely way to come home from my adventures~logging on and finding all of your lovely comments~so thank you all so much!
its lovely to know that my little area of blog-land is visited when i am away.
over the next few days i shall work my round to come visit you all, i promise.
well i was up really early this morning~4.30, swampy had stayed up to watch baseball and came to bed shortly before dawn, waking me up although i know he was trying to be ever so quiet.
of course once i was awake i had, what my occupational therapist at the m.e support group i used to attend called 'washing-machine head'~where you lie awake and your mind is so full of different thoughts and ideas you cant do anything but lie there and take it~i am sure you know what i mean!
so i decided to get up, make a mug of lemon tea and come and post here~i have a lot on my mind right now, but more of that later!
our trip away was so exciting! swampy took himself and cody off to the malverns for a few days while sam and i had our adventure.
i had not been to london for over ten years and was somewhat overwhelmed by the amount of people and noise~i don't think either of us particularly enjoyed travel by tube~we are both country girls to the core!
we stayed in kensington and exploring on thursday afternoon discovered the huge 'whole foods market' just around the corner from our hotel~well loving anything new and different we ended up spending quite some time there, deciding we preferred it to Harrods food hall~very busy, we saw gordon ramsey filming by the sea food counter and i much preferred the old tiles decorating the hall!
i bought nothing in harrods but i treated myself at the whole food market and bought two bars of soap made by Simply Soaps-compostable wrappers! a jute shopper and a box of Celsestial Seasons chai tea bags~yes for me that really is splashing out! (and i have to say the soap is cheaper at the whole food market than the website~not quite sure how that happens!)
wimbledon was a huge experience.
once there we found ourselves a table on 'henman hill' where we had our lunch before exploring and finally making our way to our seats on centre court~anyone who watches wimbledon will know the top levels of the seating are under a canopy, that was where we were-facing the umpires chair and level with the base line~we took plenty of photos and i will load them to photobucket soon and put a link here.
on that note i shall stop here...
