Happy New Year!!

I feel so guilty! 

I'm dying to sit down and write you all a long letter/blog post. 
I'm anxious to spend a few hours commenting on your blogs and responding to your emails.  
I want to make some phone calls to reconnect.  I want to schedule some lunches and get-togethers.
But, alas.  There just aren't enough hours in the day! 
I'm sure you can all relate.  

Hopefully, things will slow down soon so I can do all of those things.
In the mean time,  I hope you will forgive me for my neglect.   
One of my goals for the New Year is to spend more time doing all of those things
(along with the usual goals of losing weight, exercising and cutting down on the cocktails. Ugh.) 

We had such a fun New Year's Eve Celebration.
As of Monday, we had no plans at all.  But, I just couldn't let my first 
London New Years pass by without some sort of outing.

We stumbled upon the Medieval Banquet online and it sounded perfectly cheesy and wonderful!
Henry VIII, wenches, lambchops, sword fighting, ale, and a disco!
And it was just a quick walk across the bridge, so no drama getting home after midnight. 
Perfect!  We had a blast!!


 In a city full of wonderful things to see and do, it's probably not too high on the list.

But, if you go expecting good food, not gourmet;
cheesy, not classy;
fun, not stuffy,
then you will have a wonderful time!

Don't ask for a wine list... you get "Red" or "White".
Nope... you don't get a spoon for that soup.  Improvise.
If you need something... just holler "Wench!!"
They will serve you with a smile and a saucy attitude.
Don't clap... bang on the table.  Loudly!
You can even rent a costume to help you get into the mood. 

Even the walk home was fun!
Everyone was in such a festive spirit.

I had my hand kissed... twice!!
I still had on my crown from the banquet and
was mistaken for the Queen... twice!!
 I simply responded with a royal wave... as you do. 

It was a terrific night and the perfect way to ring in the New Year.

I sincerely wish you each and every one a fantastic year
full of love and adventure.
