Scottso Does London

We had another visitor 2 weeks ago, Scott.

That’s him at the Crypt of St. Martin.

Anyway, back to our weekend. We did a lot in 4 days.

He showed up with presents for us!!

Velveeta for Jon and paydays for me!!

First we went to Jon’s favorite Chinese restaurant near Baker Street for dinner on Thursday.

Then we went to Jon’s favorite dim sum restaurant in Chinatown for lunch on Friday.

I’m not sure if Scott isn’t enjoying himself, hates the Christmas Crown Jon got him or I just caught him at a bad moment.

After lunch we checked out the fountain at Trafalgar Square.


On Saturday the boys went to an Arsenal game while I cooked and baked for the Ugly Christmas Sweater party were were going to Saturday night.

How ugly are our sweaters?!  Scott definitely had the ugliest one there!

On Sunday we walked around London a little more.

Stopping at Westminster Abbey.

And Buckingham Palace.

We got dinner at another one of Jon’s favorite Thai restaurants (do you see a theme happening?!) and then Scott headed back to NY on Monday morning.

Such a great weekend!  I hope you enjoyed it Scott!

What I Won

Do you remember a while back when I said I won Expat Women’s September contest?

My mini travel guides arrived in the post last week!!

Look at them!!!  I’m excited to use them soon.  I’ll be using the Paris book in March!

Thanks again Expat Women & Explorer Publishing!

I won!

I’m a member of Expat Women. It’s a great website where other expats tell stories, give advice and just write.  It’s a great resource if you think you are going to be moving to a new country or if you want to get in touch with someone there to ask advice.  As a member you are entered into a contest each month.  I won for the month of September!

That’s what it said in the September newsletter.  I will be receiving Explorer Mini-Guides thanks to Explorer Publishing. I can’t wait to get them in the mail post.
