Wow...it's been a while since I've had a chance to blog. Well, I can't remember everything that I did b/c my week with Tommy was absolutely insane! We ran all over this huge city. I guess that last time I blogged was Friday. Saturday was consumed with music/art paper writing. I left the house at about 5 AM on Sunday to meet Tommy at the airport. It was so great to see him again! Although he was exhausted, I walked him all through Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park. Then we walked to Harrod's, but it was closed. We walked around that area for a while. For dinner, Will and I took Tommy to the Hereford Arms. He enjoyed his first traditional fish n' chips. On Monday, Tommy got lost in London while I was in class until 4. I could hardly sit still in class b/c I knew that Tommy was here...silly, I know. I can't remember where we went exactly, but I know that Tommy, Taylor, and I went to an amazing Italian restaurant for dinner, Il Borgeo. It was so good! Tuesday...another blur...I'm sure it involved a ton of sightseeing. Maybe I should stop going day-by-day and just tell the things that I remember at this moment in time. One day we went to the Tower of London. I had already been, but I knew that Tommy would love it. I was right! The blood, guts, and gore really fascinated him. One night, we walked on the Thames. It was really romantic...hehe. We also went to a Good Friday Evensong at Westminster Abbey which Tommy also thoroughly enjoyed. We ate at the Forum a couple of times. Tommy liked that too. I knew the apple strudel was really good when Tommy (he never eats desserts) ordered it and fell in love. On Wednesday morning, Tommy went with the whole group on a Mr. Tames walking tour of London's East End (the immigrant section). The tour was good. We ate Thai for lunch in Spitafield's Market. On our last night together, Tommy treated me to dinner in Chinatown. It was really good, and I even managed to eat with chopsticks! Later we met Taylor and Steph at the Piano Bar. Tommy also really liked this. We slow danced in front of everyone...it was really sweet. What I think was probably Tommy's favorite visit in London was our trip to the food market under London Bridge. It was my first time, and there was no one I would rather have been with. It was absolutely amazing. Food for every sort. Some cooked and the rest fresh. Anything you could imagine. Tommy was completely floored! We spent forever there. With Sunday morning came the close of one of the best weeks of my life. There's a really long story about why Tommy missed his flight. It involves confusion over daylight savings time and screwy train schedules. Luckily, he made the next flight and arrived safely in New Orleans. I miss him a lot...he added a lot of spice to the conglomeration of people that I live with. There were a few people in the house who were even sad to see him go. Yes, Daddy and Mommy, he treated me WONDERFULLY! We didn't take as many pictures as I would have liked. He has some on his camera that should be headed my way soon. I slept most of yesterday...didn't do much today. Happy Birthday, Daddy...I know it's late! I'll upload some of the pictures soon. I got some decent ones of Big Ben, Parliament, and Westminster Abbey. Have a great week! I'm going to the Lake District this weekend! Woo-hoo! Bye!
