Autumn - sunlitdays
First of all:

Happy Belated Birthday to my dear amamama!

We haven't known each other that long but you've been a great comfort to me in many ways and I always know when I see a comment from you that there will be wise, soothing words for me to read and savour.

Secondly, I'm off on holiday! Not to foreign climes, but just travelling around dear old England. I shall be off to London on Saturday morning (I'm catching the 7:10am coach, to be precise) to meet up with jo_blogs and then spend Saturday and some of Sunday with her. Hopefully I shall also see my friend Pid and then on Monday afternoon, I'm off to Canterbury!

I heard cathedral bells tripping down the alleyways...

When I started this LJ, I'd already left Canterbury, but I've never forgotten it. I've missed it so much in the three years I've been away that just the thought of being back there makes my heart skip.

I need to be with people who are on my wavelength. I was just talking to one of the girls I sit with today. She doesn't find Mock the Week funny. Enough said. (There are clips on YouTube for those who haven't seen it.)

Man, I really need to download this song.

So sorry it isn't working out for me to get to London this weekend! I hope we can find another weekend! I'll be in London on March 14 and maybe into the weekend. I'll probably be there other times...I can let you know.

Have a good time, though!

Well, I can get one day in the week off, but you have to be sure that you're going to be there! ;) Anyway, please don't apologise. *hugs*

I'll let you know as soon as I get my schedule reworked. It's kind of in a state of sad disarray and confusion right now, lol.

No pressure. :) You've got my e-mail address.

Thank you sweetie! I've been having a blast. Enjoy your visit with the dear dogstar, I'm so loooking forward to my visit in two months. Being with people on the same wavelength is important, and part of the reason wy I love LJ. Have a fun holiday!

So rude of me - replying to all Laura's comments before she's read them ;) Happy belated birthday - sorry I couldn't celebrate it with you, but we'll have lots of chance to celebrate together soon!

I know you're busy (and maybe nine people pulling writing in all directions is enough, but gods, it was fun). I assumed the birthday greeting was for me, but now I see Laura wrote Anamama, not Amamama, so maybe I was wrong.

We'll have lots of seriously belated celebration soon. Can't wait! I'm drooling over British fabric webshops, noticing that everything is half price compared to here. Seriously, Kaffe Fasset fabrics for less than £10 per metre? Wish we had the same prices...

Hope you're doing well, I'm working on building up stamina for our days togather, so today I'm going shopping. *grins*

Yes, it is! :P But at least it means you're reading my LJ. ;)

You're coming to the UK?!!! I must come and see you! Somehow. Glad you had a good birthday.

Have a fantastic holiday =) Say hi to Jo for me PLEASE!!!

Hi yourself :) And congrats on your new job - I keep up, even though I'm a lousy commenter! *hugs*

I will. And I love how this entry has become suddenly become a mini-hub of activity where people can say 'hi' to each other. I feel like I'm the landlady and you are all my regulars! :D


Dude, Jo threw the gauntlet down. I SO had too!!

Good to see you, even briefly. Miss you. Glad things are going well. :)

I miss you, too. But we're getting broadband soon, so I will be on more often. And I've been writing more of Chapter 7, which I hope to send to you soon-ish. *hugs*

I hope you enjoy your holiday! I've never been to Canterbury before, but I loved London.

Also, I had never heard of Mock the Week--you know, American television and all--but I watched a few of the YouTube clips and thought it was really funny! :D

If you're ever in the UK, I must take you to Canterbury. It's not impressive like London, of course, but it is ancient, and unlike London, you can feel how old it is. Because London is the capital, most of the old buildings have either been knocked down, built over or redone, so it's very difficult to get a sense of the past unless you're in a protected property.

SEE? You only saw a few clips and you think it's funny! *sigh* I must not be an intellectual snob, I must not be an intellectual snob...
