A spot of sun.

So, yesterday I was indirectly complaining that I never see the sun, but for one glorious hour the sun came out to slap me in the face. It was awesome.

“One time, Regina George punched me in the face. It was awesome.”

The day started out covered in clouds as we went for a bike ride through Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park.

We wanted to see the Peter Pan statue, which is incredibly easy to find but both times I’ve gone I’ve taken wrong turns and added about 20 minutes to my travel time.

We were en route to a place that serves American style fried pickles when I spotted this area behind Oxford Street that had lots of cafes with outdoor seating. It was starting to get sunny, so I decided to forget the fried pickles and work on being European for a bit.

We went to a crepe shop, where I got an iced coffee and a crepe filled with spinach, cheese and ratatouille. It set me back £8, but it was great!

Tomorrow is Clay’s last day in England, so we’re going to see The Lion King musical. He better like it. Also, Sunday morning after I drop him off at the airport I’m running the British 10K race, which I’m rather nervous about after having to take two weeks off running due to my knee. I’ve been looking forward to this race since April so I hope I can make it through and carry on with my marathon training!

  1. Gorgeous flowers – I wonder what kind of flower those are.

    I just watched Finding Neverland the other night, it was on tv and I stayed up late to watch it even though we have a DVR…duh. I love movies and stories surrounding Peter Pan – Hook was a favorite (still is…Maggie Smith, Dustin Hoffman…so good), and Finding Neverland is great, too. I like the statue in your park.

    And of course, yummy food. Great choice going for that new spot.

    Looking forward to hearing how your race goes & if marathon training will resume…I hope so!!!

    • I’ve been thinking about getting into flowers. That sounds weird, but I’d love to be able to name them.

      I don’t think I’ve seen Finding Neverland although it sounds so familiar. Hook, however, I LOVE. I’ve seen it so many times!!

      Marathon training better resume!! I’ve been patiently sitting it out the past two weeks, icing my knee and resting. I did a little test run last night and it seemed fine. I’m going to decrease my mileage a bit, and if it means I have to walk some during my marathon oh well. I’d rather be able to run most of it and walk some then not be able to run at all!
