Ah! I was in London from the 12th to the 15th! Whereabouts did you go in England?

That’s when I was in Scotland!  :-)

We saw all the touristy things in London: Victoria & Albert, the British Library, the Tower of London, the Sherlock Holmes museum.  Went shopping at Harrods and Fortnum & Mason’s, too. 

Does this mean you're willing to do afternoon tea outings now, or was that a "what I drank in the UK stays in the UK" kinda thing? :)

LOL.  If that was the case, not only tea would be staying in the UK—I also discovered I really like cider, too.  So yes, afternoon tea outings are definitely in the cards for the future!  :-)

Sadly, had no crumpets.  But I did have a lot of tea!  And England and Scotland were both awesome places and everyone should visit them.  [nods]

In other good/interesting news, while I didn’t write as much as I hoped I would, I DID manage to write some and I feel like I’m cracking open Finding Home.  So I have hopes of being able to really focus on it and get it done!

[pauses for the obligatory Kermit!flail, because you don’t know how much I want to write this story and yet, with no inspiration, no writing can happen]

I’ll keep y’all posted as things develop.  Hope everyone’s doing well!
