in england

Photobucket

Just a really quick one today to show you a little snap of life in London so far. I'm staying with some friends in, you guessed it, the East End and who actually do have an EastEnders motif pasted onto their mirror!

I haven't really taken many pictures yet, but I'll leave you with a photo from last time I was in the London area. In 2008 my boyfriend was working in Hatfield and I visited for a few weeks close to Christmas. Here I gaze at Hatfied House, Hatfield's one tourist attraction, which also happens to be closed all winter... Going into London was really expensive on the train, so I spent lots of time going swimming at the local pool (until they started renovating it), and writing a romance. The romance genre is definitely not for me, but it was the first time I ever finished a book, so I suppose I have Hatfield to be grateful to for that.

I really wish I had my coat and hat with me this time...

Outfit:
coat: Topshop (from 2003)
boots: Rocket Dog
hat: gift
mitts: gift from Peru

Mexico pictures tomorrow! I took loads before I left.

Every time I read about you in London, I smile-- someday. :)

And I love how you wrote a romance in England-- sounds like a 1940s movie (you've certainly got the look for it!).

CAITLIN said...

haha! i love that you wrote a romance novel because you were bored. i have a friend who did the same thing--she got swine flu and didn't have anything better to do, so she wrote a romance.

have fun in london! i was there for a grand total of about 6 hours once... someday i'll go back and inexperience something more than a subway station and the inside of a bar :)

This seems like such an exciting time for you! How romantic that you wrote a book in Halfield. Very Jane Austen I would say!

I think it's fantastic that you would be spending a few years in London. I can bet on you having the loveliest time! Maybe I'll see you when I stop over for the holidays. Hope you're settling in okay!

Your boots make me smile. I wish I had a reason to own several pairs of wellies.

Haha east enders! Reminds me of my childhood, mom was obsessed with that show!

Too bad Hatfield House was closed! I have an ever-growing list of great houses and estates I'd love to visit in England someday.

Wasn't Emily Starr advised that romances are difficult to write? That seems to ring a bell ;)
That's awesome that you were inspired and actually completed the task. For as long as I can remember, I've always wanted to sit down and write a story, but can never seem to make it work.

Terri said...

you do get around, but congrats on completing the writing of a book. Romance is not my style of writing either.

Awe I am so happy you made it there ok! I am sure you'll have greater luck this time around :) what was your romance book about (other than romance hehe)?
You make me miss hanging around London, I stayed there for 3 weeks during my 6 months in England and I miss it terribly!
