Back in blooming Britain...

Once again it was time to venture back across the Atlantic for our annual visit home to Britain and so far the weather has provided us with a sunny welcome (although it looks like things may turn rainy in the days to come).

It's been great catching up with friends and family alike, enjoying new London restaurants and cocktails at old haunts in Soho.

I've also been enjoying the delights of the British high street and all the fantastic retail stores. I really do miss the likes of M&S, WHSmith, Waitrose, Waterstones, Sainsbury's, Paperchase and all the little cook shops and gift stores, and don't get me started on all my favourite foods in the supermarkets.

Although there have been a few things that have reminded me of my L.A. home.

We've a few more days in London then it's off to the West Country and Wales to see more family, then on our return we have the chance to fit in a much needed little spa break escape in the countryside before we jet back to L.A.

Let's hope the British weather will be kind the rest of our stay...
