I hope that you have all been waiting with baited breath to hear the updates after our short absence from the blog, but I apologize for making you wait. One of the biggest things we’ve done is move flats.
The truth is that our new flat is more like real life in London rather than being a tourist in the cool company flat… There is no maid service, the internet speed is much slower, and I might have just won a battle with the flu. (Don’t worry kids, it didn’t get me, I drank a lot of water with my anti-cold remedy and stayed warm for a couple of days while I rested.) There is so much more to tell you, that it may take me a few days to get it all on the blog.
For your patience though, I thought you might enjoy the view looking North out of our bedroom window:
and the view looking into the living area over the office wall:
The last thing I would like to leave you with this evening is a plea to vote. It doesn’t matter if we agree about who should next run our country. (You could write in my Dad; he is smart and believes in operating on a surplus budget whenever possible.) Drew and I applied for absentee ballots, but they didn’t arrive in time so I overnighted our write-in ballots today. I just didn’t realize how much it meant to me until I almost couldn’t vote. And just so you know, Starbucks is giving free coffee to people who voted, so stop in and get your free buzz. This is a cause I can support.
We will return tomorrow with more updates; see you soon! XO
