Wow I feel like my vacation was months ago! I really can't believe it has taken me this long to finish blogging about it. I guess life has been busy! I have noticed that work has been busier for me than usual which means I emotionally drained and exhausted by the end of the day and don't always feel like blogging at night. I've also been dealing w/ some MS fatigue for the last week so that isn't helping. On a positive note my friend, Noelle and I are walking twice a week. She has MS too and we are motivating each other to be healthy and active. It is great b/c there is no way I would do it on my own but since I know I have to meet her it makes me go. I feel great and more energized afterwards! Anyways what you really want to hear about is. . . London right!? Here goes. . .
We didn't leave much time for walking around my old 'hood but we did walk back to the Tube via the canals. They look just like I remember! The blue houseboat w/ all the plants is still there. I have a similar pic from 1995! So many good memories brought back to me as we made our way to the Tube.
All in all it was a great day and great night. Oh and this night was the latest Stacy and I stayed up my whole vacation.
We hadn't planned much for my last day. The only thing on the agenda was a blog friend meet up! This was the first time I met someone in real life that I only knew from blogging. Nat lives in London. She has MS too and I found her blog soon after I starting blogging. Stacy and I met her for lunch and it was nice to learn more about her. We talked about London, the Red Sox (unfortunately she is a Yankees fan but her smart finance is a Sox fan), MS, life, work and anything and everything. It was nice. Nat is a great girl with such a positive attitude despite having to deal w/ some of the struggles MS puts on our lives. She faces it head on and doesn't let it slow her down! Thanks Nat for treating us to lunch. It was so nice to meet you in real life and if you are ever in Boston I'll take you out (and to a Sox game)!!
That afternoon Stacy and I were low key. We walked around a bit, went to a book store, a coffee shop (I had to have one last pastry) and then back to her flat to just hang. We did venture back out that night for dinner in her neighborhood which was fun.
As they say all good things must come to an end. I couldn't believe that my vacation had gone so fast! I did so much while I was in England and had such a nice time w/ Stacy.
So that is the last of it! Did you make it through this entire post. I think I rambled more than usual. I'm tired. And distracted by Game 7. By the way the Bruins are winning 3 to 0! Yay!
So make sure you check out my other vacation posts b/c we did a lot more in England and you don't want to miss out!
Oh and I didn't proof read this (not that I ever do) but this time I have a feeling there are more typos than usual. Too bad! Lol.
