A tea drawer

There was one night in London where we couldn’t get a room at Premier Inn. So we stayed at the Holiday Inn King’s Cross/Bloomsbury.

It was good – two double beds – and check this out. I opened up one of the drawers that appear to be a desk and …. TEA DRAWER!

(Note, I did make the tea that is in there. I didn’t open the drawer to find two hot cups of tea!)

Happy July

Well, I apologize for the dormancy of the blog these past weeks. It’s been a whirlwind of activity in June. Let’s see … the kids got out of school, I had a birthday, our French friend’s teenage daughter came to stay with us for three weeks to learn English and experience a slice of Murica, we took a vacation in San Diego … whirlwind, I tell you.

But I’ve compiled my top 5 bits that I would have blogged had I eked out a little more time to do so:

1. Happy 65th birthday, NHS!

King's Cross, Wimbledon

Londoners could grab a deck chair to watch Wimbledon in Cubitt Square, King’s Cross.

2. Princess Charlotte’s christening. And more importantly, comedic riffs on Prince George’s outfit.

3. This transformation of Kings Cross in celebration of Wimbledon.

4. The U.S. Women’s World Cup win!

5. Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, cursing the photographer, during the 75th anniversary event commemorating the Battle of Britain.
