Yesterday I got a new broom, cloth handkerchiefs, and a silicone device used in a frying pan to prepare foods like eggs or pancakes. (I didn’t have to wait long to test out my new cooking tool.) You would think Londoners never saw someone carrying a broom down the street before… How did they get their broom home?!
This morning I made Drew a proper weekend breakfast, though he may have had an accident with the pepper shaker…
The biscuits turned out different than the first attempt, but still not quite perfect. I am tempted to think that the measuring bit is the problem. I usually experience more success when I wing it–I’ll keep trying.
Though we ended up having a rather lazy day that included housework and a grand nap, we did manage to have the most delicious dinner at Thai Thai on Old Street. The service was better than any we have had so far in London. The atmosphere was welcoming and posh at the same time; we felt pampered. I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted so I explained to our waitress that I wanted something spicy with vegetables, tofu, and red curry. She was happy to select a dish that fit those requirements. I still can’t believe how friendly and warm the staff was. Everyone that came by our table acknowledged us and was extremely attentive. The food was excellent. It was exactly what I described. It was like dining at home.
So, tomorrow we’ll be visiting some retailers in search of a nice coat for Drew and fun household items. I don’t think we’ll be investing in anything really amazing or awe inspiring, but these days I am an easy girl to please.
Maybe this Christmas you should consider starting a savings account for your London trip. We have identified at least one really nice local Thai restaurant that you will want to try. Any other requests?
Love, hugs, and gingerbread to you~
