"Just be who you are, calm and clear and bright." - Richard Bach, Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah

Adventures in London, part 1

On the 31st I flew from Knock to Stansted. Seanan, Deirdre, and Diarmuid met me at Liverpool Street station, and after I’d dropped my bags we romped around town for a bit–browsed at The Tea House and Hope & Greenwood, which has to be THE best sweet shop in the whole world.

The amusements at Leicester Square.

Then we went to Fortnum & Mason, the poshest department store ever, where I felt like a street urchin drooling over the candy counters.

Then we went home and Seanan cooked up a delicious dinner (spicy parsnip soup! in a bread bowl! an olive bread bowl! and filo pastries with spinach and brie and apples and pine nuts! and some no-doubt-yummy chocolatey thing I was way too full for! and he even got me amaretto and cranberry juice!!) It was a lovely laid-back New Year’s Eve.

    You are an urchin! Seanan's meal sounds really scrumptious!

Hi! I'm Camille. I only write stories that could never ever happen in real life, though I do believe in real-life magic. If we were in the same room I'd fix you a cup of tea, but for now we'll have to settle for a virtual connection. I'm really glad you're here.
