To London and Back Again

This week was a work trip to London.  I departed at 6:15am on Tuesday and found myself at an awful pub at 12:30am on Wednesday.

It's been a long time since I've had a night out.  How long?  I honestly don't know.

Perhaps it was the night of accidental many beers at Dave's, circa fall 2017?

I had a drink or two on my birthday in January 2018.  And then Isaac was born in October 2018, and I don't think I've done a "night out" since then.

I don't think I've missed it much either.  Nothing good happens after midnight.  

I did enjoy sleeping in a hotel.  I enjoyed walking 2 miles from Tottenham court road to Paddington station in the morning.  I enjoyed my salmon sandwich on the train and my Coffee Lab coffee on the walk back to my house.

I enjoy my quiet life.  London is big and busy and exciting.  But like a typical mom I spent the evening thinking of how much fun Isaac will have visiting London someday.

I booked train tickets for Isaac and I to travel up north and visit Abi.  It's a 6 hour train ride.  I can't wait to go on my first big adventure with him.

I kept thinking how much Isaac would love the hotel as well.

Now I have one more day at work and then I have a day off on Friday!
