And a good evening to you from across the Pond after a WONDERFUL Sunday in the Mother Country. Since I last left you, Team Taylor has been quite productive!
After I signed off around 11, Yazz and muffin puffin popped up for coffee. We hung out for a couple of hours, kicking back, looking at photos, and admiring the GORGEOUS sunshine before Yazz said farewell around 1. Yazz - we had SO MUCH FUN!!! Can't wait to see you again in a few weeks!
So today the Taylor's had one big to-do to cross off: getting JT a new pair of boots. This is the part where I cuss Dann and Karin de la Rosa, as they sparked a love affair between Jenny and Clark's shoes that's costing this family money! SERENITY NOW!!!!!!!!!! Okay, it's actually NOT that dramatic, and she looks really hot in he new gear.
Long story short, we spent the afternoon exchanging a faulty pair (soles falling apart after 4 wears) for newer, cuter, and CHEAPER boots. We walked all over Oxford Street (after all, we are VERY cosmopolitan), and the last store we visited yielded the results we needed - Can't wait to show you perfect pumpkin when she gets all gussied up!
Lunch today was GREAT - we hit Busaba Eathai, a great Asian fusion joint with some DELISH Thai food and GREAT tea. Check me out, in all my sophistication, pouring ginger and honey tea (I spilt it the first time I tried to pour, as I was trying to be pimp like Tom Cruise in Cocktail).
The walk to lunch, however, was NOT spectacular, as Sam "The Human Bobsled" Taylor found the ONE WET PATCH OF PAVEMENT on Wardour Street with his boot, resulting in a blindingly graceful tumble that allowed folks to witess a) my catlike reflexes and speed (Tommy Boy) and b) how easy it is to go from vertical to an inch away from a concussion in the cest pool waters of London's sidewalks. Luckily I caught myself, but that could have been BAD...
The rest of the evening has been quiet, with me reading more P.D. James (halfway through!), talking to the Tacy's, and Jenny polishing and water-proofing her new boots (as well as her Uggs).
Back to the gym tomorrow - much needed considering that we just polished off some MORE mature cheddar tonight! But hey, at least it was an AFD (should that be mandatory the day after you touch moonshine?).
Okay, that's all the news that's fit to print. Chat tomorrow!
