After our visit with Uncle Steve and Auntie Susan, I found out that I had to go to London on a last minute work assignment. I flew the afternoon of Sunday, October 12. I got in a bit later than planned, hopped on the Piccadilly line tube, and checked into the Novotel hotel in Hammersmith. I ordered some fish and chips with mushy peas and then hit the hay. The next day I worked and then met up with my friend Jen. She had invited me to join her and some friends for a Thanksgiving dinner with the Canadian Womens Group. We met up in central London at a pub called the Counting House and dinner included all of the fixings like turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberries, and of course pumpkin pie for dessert. Dan unfortunately had to have a bachelor’s Thanksgiving this year but he seemed to do alright for himself with some turkey breast, mashed potatoes, and creamed corn.
Jen was nice enough to meet up with me at my hotel for dinner the next 2 nights. We were going to venture out the second night but it was pissing down rain so we decided to eat in the hotel. Another great visit in London right before Jen’s upcoming visit to Abu Dhabi.
