Blond Across the Pond 2010

"'Ello. Where's the loo, please?"
"Sorry, can you tell me which way to the tube?"
"I'll have a pint of Peroni, please."
"A'right. Have a go at getting a taxi, mate?"

These are the phrases I'm trying to remember heading over to London. Such a fascinating, busy, historical city. Everyone is polite to a fault and manners are expected even from drunkards on the streets. I haven't been back to London in more than a year. Kingsley and I spent a week there together just before our honeymoon in Barcelona in October 2009.

Our plans include an afternoon at the British Museum to see the new Buhddhist exhibits (showing some artifacts that haven't been on display before) before heading to Covent Garden for a pie/pasty. Kings and I will also eat Thai food at the restaurant he booked for our first date, The Blue Elephant. I was so enamored by the man, I barely remember the food or setting. We may also go to the Oyster Bar at Selfridges one day for champagne and oysters and our New Year's Eve plans with friends sound exciting.

Mostly, I cannot wait to put on our pajamas, cook together, sip wine, snuggle on the couch and watch movies. We're going to act like a "real" married couple without the bickering ... yet...

I'll be sure to update you here with pictures when I have time.
