We went back home a short while ago. It was the first time for six months and I was ready. Ready to see my family, my friends and my city. The wonderful London. I miss it, I miss them, I miss lots of things.

The visit was jam packed and brief. We didn’t get to see everyone we wanted but we did our best. J fitted in two weddings, we managed families and friends and plenty of catching up. I guess the one thing it really wasn’t was restful but then again that wasn’t why we were going 😉

I used to walk past Horse Guards Parade every day on the way to work, I still love seeing it, even when the weather isn’t quite so good.

The Algerian Coffee Stores is one of my favourite shops in London. They have the most amazing selection of tea, coffee and sweets. Plus it looks so cute.

Then we walked through St James park and I couldn’t resist photographing these gorgeous flowers.

I also used to walk past this sign every day and it always made me smile, kind of out of place but also very fitting.

Not that I want to wish time away but I’m looking forward to going back again already.

    It sounds like you guys had a wonderful time. I’m sure you’re missed just as much as you are missing home.

    And thank you, that coffee shop is going on my London to do list right now!

      Oh good! Definitely worth a visit, the people are all lovely too. And thank-you, missing something is such an odd thing but good too, I think it helps you realise what you value.

    I’m glad y’all had a good time!

    And now I know of one coffee shop I must visit when I (eventually) get to London. 😉

      Oh yes! And they do espresso which you can buy in the shop which are cheap too. Of course you really must come to London, but only when I’m back so I can show you around 😉
