On Friday afternoon, I headed to London again. I started my day in Notting Hill as I visited the market on Portobello Road. The market is MUCH bigger than I ever dreamed! There were blocks and blocks of antiques, fruits and vegetables, clothing, collectibles. You name it; it was probably there.
On Thursday, I decided not to head into London, but to head to Greenwich. Greenwich is where the Prime Meridian is located. All of the world time zones are based from Greenwich. I rode the train to London, then took another train to Greenwich. It was another sunny, breezy and beautiful day in England.

So today was Katie's birthday, and after a late start to my day, I decided to explore her town of Weybridge.
It is an adorable little town lined with quaint shops and cafes. I ventured into several shops, but I have to say that I enjoyed the grocery store the most. I spent an hour walking the aisles and looking at all of the unique food items. (Did you know they call cookies "digestives" and "biscuits"?) The bread aisle was amazing with all of the varieties of fresh breads. I had a hard time deciding on what to purchase, so I ended up with stuff to make tacos for Katie (I brought the seasoning with me on the plane because they don't sell it here). I also bought yummy dark chocolate melt in the middle puddings (molten chocolate cakes) to celebrate her bday.
I thought I would be adventurous for lunch and purchased a veggie pasty. It is kind of like a puff pastry with cooked filling inside. They sell them with meats and gravies, but I had the veggie kind. It was very good.
We enjoyed our night just talking and eating and laughing. It's back to London tomorrow!
Cheers! And happy birthday, Katie!

When I am down, you lift me up.
When I am happy, you rejoice with me.
When I am bored, you make life fun.
When I am sad, you comfort me.
When I am tired, you allow me to rest.
When I am irrational, you make things sane again.
When I am silly, you laugh with me.
You are loving, forgiving, kind, patient, fun-loving, and more than I could ever ask for or deserve.
I love you guys!
