Back Home

Can you guess where I have been all week? Yep, that's right London. Went with my gal pal Melissa. NO Kids NO Husbands. We had a blast. Loads of shopping, sightseeing, eating and laughs.
5 days however is not near enough time to see and do everything in a city that is hundreds of years old. I really need to go back.
The weather wasn't even that bad. Slight drizzle one day. Didn't even have to use my umbrella.
No matter how much fun you have,it is always nice to come home and sleep in your own bed. Oh did it ever feel good last night after a 9 hour flight.
That would be me in a Covent Gardens phone booth
Horse guards at Buckingham Palace



Market on Portabello Street.
Love red doors. This one is in Notting Hill
The sign on this door at the Tower of London cracked me up.
Big Ben. Absolutely beautiful.
