London, BABY!

I know I have been remiss in posting to my Blog. Things have been hectic lately, and journaling has not been my first priority.

So, here I am in London, having a grand ole time. This is my third time here, but I still find it exciting! There are always new places to see and new adventures to have...I guess it just doesn~t get old! Anyway, my friend M asked me just after Thanksgiving if I was up to going, and I decided that I would on the fly...The real story is that Nathan was going to Australia for his brother~s wedding and I was so jealous, that I had to plan my own trip! So here I am...

London is fabulous. We have been to the British Museum, the Tate Modern, the National Gallery, and visited all of the other major sites.

We also made it up to Edinburgh for the Hogmanay festivities...(the Scottish New Year Street Party). I will comment more on that later, when I have pictures to illustrate my stories!

Anyway, I am tired in that satisfied sort of way, and I am looking forward to going home to Chicago.

I still have to pick up a souvenir for my baby...who has not, by-the-way, emailed me the entire time he~s been in Australia. I~m getting a little worried by his lack of communication--I hope he didn~t get caught in all of the brush fires that were raging across the outback...

I~m sure he~s fine. But I do miss him.
OK--I promise I will post more when I get back to the states!
