City Girl

Apologies for the infrequent posts, I am slacking and am very aware of it.  I promise to try harder to make the time in my busy schedule to post to you all that I have been up to in my attempts at becoming a country lass. 

I spent my weekend in the city that we call London.  Myself and James made a visit to the HMS Belfast, followed by a quick stop off in the pub in search of real ales, finished off at the Rainforest Cafe for an early dinner.

As much as I love the country I think there will always be a place in my heart for London.  Don't get me wrong, there are many things about it that frustrate me so much, such as the crowds upon crowds of tourists who find it 100% acceptable to just stop right infront of you to take a photo or have a look around. Now as much as I don't usually mind this, for some reason when I'm trying to get somewhere in London it really bugs me, I become a true city girl, I know where I am, I know where I want to be and I want to get there as soon as I can.  That aside I love London for the fact that everything I could possible want or need is there and it is easy to get around.

Of all the cities I have visited so far, I am yet to find one that I like more than London.  There are just so many hidden treasures and places to explore you would never get bored it would be virtually impossible.

Sunday was a little bit more chilled.  I like to use my Sundays to wind down from the busy week I have just had and prepare myself for the week ahead and all it may bring me.  We were hoping to fly our kite, that may I add has never been used since I bought it, and has still not been used as it just was not windy enough in Chelmsford.  Instead we used the opportunity to walk around the park.  I enjoyed looking up at all the trees, seeing how all the colours are slowly changing from green to yellow.  I love this time of year, there are so many colours to see, it is beautiful.  For a moment I went back to my childhood, collecting conkers that had fallen from the trees.  Every year my parents would take me and my brother up the park with a carrier bag each to see who could collect the most conkers, funny how some childhood memories will always stick with you :-).
