Life is Good!

Monday, May 30, 2016 Day 29

After scones and clotted cream and jam for breakfast! we jumped onto the tube and headed into London for the day. Trevor and Sarah had made a good plan. We first stopped off at Leicester Square, the big entertainment area, and booked tickets for a Broadway musical for tomorrow night, Kinky Boots! There are so many great shows to choose from but we are excited to see this award winning show, based on a true story and with music and lyrics written by Cyndi Lauper of “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” fame. We then jumped back on the tube and headed to Cambden Square/ Market, actually London’s 4th most visited tourist attraction, with approximately 100,000 people visiting each weekend and even Monday morning it was very crowded! We strolled around for a couple of hours enjoying the sights and sounds. I especially was in awe of the huge shop that had an incredible display of old sewing machines in the huge window. We grabbed a bite to eat from one of the stalls for lunch..so many choices, it was difficult to choose! Into the afternoon we walked and walked and made our way to Marleybone, described by Wikipedia as “an affluent inner city area of central London, England, located within the City of Westminster, sometimes written as St. Marleybone.” It is confusing: inner-cities, cities, towns, boroughs..to me it is all London, England and I am loving being here with so much to see and do! Everyone should come to London like the famous nursery rhyme, “Pussy Cat, Pussy Cat, where have you been? I have been to London to visit the Queen!” We continued on to Marleybone, as Trevor and Sarah had decided to treat me to afternoon tea. While there we visited a book store, museum  and a church. Afternoon tea is well known as a special thing to enjoy while in London. Sarah had done research on the best place to go and we had a reservation at 108 Pantry at the Marleybone Hotel for 4:30 pm. It was so nice and SO delicious and we relaxed and ate and chatted for a couple of hours and enjoyed having a wonderful young Polish man serving us! 3 courses including savouries: tiny sandwiches or appetizers: scones, served with cream and jam: pastries: cakes, sweets ..Lovely! It was not necessary for them to do this…..I was more than happy to get this B and B for us for our time together, which means so much to me!!!! Again,

I felt special and loved every minute of it! Back to our temporary home and Trevor whipped me at a game of Uno, before all settling in for the night.

Laugh, love, live..life is good!
