Back in the Tofu Valley

Hey mates! Another long travel day yesterday. I got home about 8:30 p.m. Eastern time, but my body thought it was 1:30 a.m. Exhausted as I was, I woke up at around 4:30 this morning and couldn't get back to sleep. So today, I'm taking it easy -- doing laundry, catching up on e-mail and Facebook, adding links to my blog posts, and dumping all my pix onto my computer.

I still can't believe that I didn't have a drop of rain the entire time I was in London. I'd like to think that I brought the nice autumnal weather with me from New England, but I think the UK was just due for a change in weather pattern after all the rain they'd had in August and early September.

Hope you enjoyed reading about my adventures and my little travel tips on how to do London on the cheap (my total out-of-pocket expenses were £165). One last tip: Your shoes don't matter so much as your socks -- buy good hiking socks if you're going to walk as much as I did. Whatever blister guard® is, it really does work. I probably wouldn't have gotten the blister on my little toe if I'd been wearing my bestest socks on Saturday.

Watch for my photos as I start to upload them to Flickr.

    Welcome home. Maybe you brought the good fall-y weather from the UK to New England. Sure made me not want to go to work today. Unfortunately, won't be able to hear about your adventures this Saturday over coffee, as it's Investiture Day (in Westfield) afterward I'm heading to Bowdoin for Tim's newphew Tim's wedding. Best wishes for re-entry.

  2. Hey, MJ. Great blog. I had no idea you were an Anglophile, an accomplished knitter, and a fan of Alan Bates/Albert Finney. How is it possible that these subjects never came up in the '70's?
    I've lost your email and maybe the blog thing makes more sense anyway.
