Hey There!

A site about my crafty, adventurous, london life. Things that I make, things that I like, things that I do. And my attempts to find my own London. All the while trying not to be too homesick for California and the Bay Area.

A Home Project and Highgate Cemetery

I’ve been working on a little project on the home front. There is a wide sill next to the kitchen so I thought I’d get a little planter box going.

Chamomile, thyme, chives, and strawberry!

I’ve never had my own garden. And this is about as close as I’m going to get for a while.

We took a trip to famous Highgate cemetery the other day. Karl Marx and creator of Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams reside there among other note worthy dead people.

The gatekeeper is hilarious and changes his accent to whatever nation you reside from. I think we said California and we got a “Well HOOOOWWWARDY ya’ll”! And as we left (trying to leave without him seeing) we got a “yar’ll come back now yaHEAAWWRRR”.

We went through Parliament Hill on the way back. Again, like Regent Park, I cannot show in pictures how beautiful this place is. It is THE ultimate family/picnic/outdoor fun destination. There were a lot of people there and still plenty of room left on the bright green rolling hills.

Some cockney prison rhyming slang experience. Grass, as in grass in the park, and park rhymes with nark! She told on them ooooooooooh!

Love and Warm Weathered London (Finally!)
