Last week, I ventured out with two new friends! Tracy (the wife of one of Jiggy's co-workers), Barack (the 11 week old son of Tracy...he is SOOOO cute), and I met for coffee and a stroll through London. Tracy has lived in London on and off for many years so she knows the city well. We met at Covenant Garden tube station and I was able to see an area of London that I had not yet seen! We strolled around Tralfager Square and the theater district. We even briefly poked our heads into the National Gallery! The place is huge and has some amazing art. There certaintly is no lack of museums in London and they are all free! I might check one out one later this week. It was great to get out and see some different parts of London.
Ok, so now on to our new flatmate. As Jiggy and I were sitting down to dinner on Friday night, I spotted something a little unusual near the ceiling of our conservatory. What could it be? Upon further investigation, we discovered it was a snail! We have no idea how he got into the the flat or how he got so high. He is quite the adventurous little bloke. After careful cosideration, we named him Budgens. Sadly, we decided he would be happier in the garden than in the house and so we sent him on his merry way. Goodbye Budgens...have a nice life and don't forget to write.
