NEW YORK, NEW YORK IT'S A WONDERFUL TOWN
A very quick post as I've got to clean the house, pack my bag, cook Sunday lunch, have a beauty bath, pay my bills, do my nails, water my houseplants and any other tasks I remember to do before.....
Before I go to work tomorrow!!!!
And then ....
Come home, have a meal......
Followed by a trip to my friend's house, where I'm going to sleep....
She is getting up to take me to the airport.... What a friend......
Then and only then, at 4am do I go to the airport to fly to Amsterdam!
Two hours after that I get on another plane and go across the Atlantic....
TO NEW YORK!!!!!!!!!
I'm going to stay there a week with an old friend whose having a four month sabbatical, and I was invited to help pass the time over there.
We're going to MOMA,the Guggenheim,cocktail/jazz bars, the theatre, on a boat trip across from Queens to Manhattan. I've already done the other side of the water in that I've been to the statue of Liberty. We're going to walk our socks off, just as well I've got some new flat boots to cope! We are going to a restaurant for Thanksgiving. I get to see my friend from Philly who's coming up to spend a day with me.
Basically I'm cramming in as much as possible in this my third trip to NY, to do all the grown up things I never got to do in any of the other trips.
So let me wish all of my friends in America a Happy Thanksgiving and a new hope for the future. And all my mates elsewhere in the world try not to miss me too much!! And remember we've got the 6th to look forward to!
Got no pics of NY (yet!) so please forgive the pic of the Ben Franklin Bridge across the Delaware in Philly instead.
See ya soon
hugs and kisses to all
