We went for a drink before dinner and I had a delicious mojito that rivals the mojito at Tao in NYC, before heading over to Stef’s for a great Italian meal. We each got an appetizer and a main, and ordered a glass of wine....DELISH!!! I had carpaccio and an amazing fresh pasta dish!!
In the morning we made a yummy breakfast which included bacon, eggs, roasted tomatoes, mushrooms, and squash, pure goodness!! PS- by ‘squash’ I don’t mean the vegetable, it is a fruit juice concentrate that, when diluted with water, creates a great tasty drink. We got ready and went to meet her friends on an outdoor patio. It was such a beautifully amazing day - almost no jacket weather - that we stayed on the patio forever!!!! I took a train back home that night, and crashed after the long weekend. I felt really bad because the mom in the family I am staying with left for Italy in the morning I wasn’t able to back in Twyford to say buy =( It was soo weird because the weather had been good all day, but it started getting yucky in the evening on my way back home....but there was the most beautiful double rainbow.....
I could live in there for years, sleep in the rafters, just breath the air in the store forever!!!!! Nothing makes me happier in life than to be in this store - I SWEAR!!!!!!!! Hahahahaha My goal was to buy a little something because my mom got me that 15% off voucher for my bday, but I didn’t find anything that was perfect. I mean, I found stuff, but I just didn’t want to spend any money because I just paid more than most people pay for 3 months in mortgage payments on my deposit for my flat, and I bought a comforter for my bed, pillows, and a duvet cover today too. I found this really cute soap dish I wanted to buy for my bathroom, but I already purchased a soap dispensing bottle earlier in the day. Oh well....maybe it was a good thing!!! My friend met me there and was sooooo worried that I would be upset since she was late. I reassured her that she didn’t have to worry for one second because I was in the perfect place, and she could leave me there for another day if she wanted to!!
I love traveling overground via buses...it’s such a great way to see the city!!!! We finally got to the birthday boy’s house after a long trip, and we immediately surrounded by such sweet people, our travel stresses instantly slipping away. There were these 3 people who were on a month-long journey around Europe fro Venezuela who were such great people!!! I loved being involved in a gathering with truly genuine people, not to mention the birthday boy and his partner are the nicest people EVER!!! His partner bought him a monkey shaped bday cake that was soooo cute and this candle that I would never be able to describe, but it was INSANE!!!! We didn’t stay for very long as I had to catch a taxi, the underground, overground and another taxi back to Twyford.
