    I loved your comment on my blog today....London is such a fun place to explore....I used to work in town every day for years. Now I am at home full-time so when I do go in, usually with the children with a plan in mind, I really appreciate and enjoy it. I love too how you are clearly embracing UK life totally, that is so wonderful to hear!

    Finally, my Dad worked on Guernsey for a few years many moons ago but he still talks about how wonderful the island was.
