Hollywood here I come....

OMG I really cannot believe I have just booked my flight to LA to work at CHA on behalf of Zsiage the American DT I am on. I am so very excited. I was emailed a week or so ago about coming over and today I decided to say YES!!!! I have my passport photos (thanks to Sue for helping me as I smiled when I shouldn't!) so I can renew my out dated passport and my application ready to take to Peterborough office.

I will be meeting up with a few UK girls as well and Emily Falconbridge and I will do lunch as she will be at CHA for a day. Unfortunately when I become free after CHA Emily is flying to Paris so we will not be sightseeing together. Dead excited about seeing Emily and "bump" as well.

I am very excited but awfully nervous. I have a few days after CHA to hopefully do some more teaching or maybe some sightseeing. Now to hunt a hotel for Wednesday and Thursday night in downtown LA. Any suggestions?

I spent the day with the splendid Sue, we had a scrummy lunch in a gorgeous pub called the Crooked Chimney, which resembled something out of a Brother Grimms fairytale. We dined on Salmon fishcakes and salad and chocolate brownies with homemade ice cream for afters, mmmmm. We also crammed in a bit of shopping at my favourite shop at Wellywn Garden City, I never come out of SEI empty handed. And no it is not a LSS it is a shop crammed full of knic knacks, furnishings and all things scrummy for the home. I couldn't resist a couple of chocolate cupcake candles for both Sue and I ( see Sues blog)

Thank goodness it is the weekend. i have the last of the sale orders to pack and post, now I have 200 pizza boxes waiting to be filled. A couple of magazine deadlines to complete and projects galore for CHA, ooo I am bursting with excitement. It will be my first time abroad since I landed back in the UK 11 years ago!! and also my first time to the US.

Let me know all the best places to see, do and eat will you?

hugs and "have a good day"

    My recommendation is totally skip downtown LA. Take a look at the SeaSprite hotel/motel in Hermosa Beach - it's so sweet and right on the sand.
