Claire and I were reunited today at long last, and she brought Christmas with her in the shape of our small, yet beautifully formed Christmas tree and decorations! It now sits with pride of place on our table.
I’m back in work tomorrow and thus will have to man up, for now though, my bed is still my best friend! Here’s my view for most of today as I slowly watched the sun go around…
I’m still tremendously jet-lagged, marvellous! But hey, look at my fancy jammies, guess where I got them?! Oh and I still haven’t unpacked..
Arrived back in the UK last night around 11pm – it’s safe to say I was completely shattered. I slept in today until about 1pm, and then headed out in my new fancy shoes I got form New York (did I tell you I went on holiday?!) for a colleague’s leaving party! Great night, though my sleepingContinue reading “30/11/2012 – Oh man I am jet-lagged.”
This was my last photo of New York City – The Rockefeller Christmas Tree in all its glory. We left the hotel (we stayed in the Waldorf Astoria by the way, it was just beautiful!) at 5;30am to get to the airport, but asked the taxi to go via the tree as it was only lit last night, andContinue reading “29/11/2012 – Last Snap of a Beautiful City”
Our last full day in New York City. We decided to spend the day making the most of this beautiful city, and first went for a walk around Central Park, and then to the “High Line” a disused train line that is being converted into a garden walkway across the city. Lovely way to drawContinue reading “28/11/2012 – A Stroll to Say Goodbye”
Yes, yes, it’s true, in Macy’s infact – and he was lovely! The childless inside of me will never end, and this seriously made my day. Meeting Santa, in New York, in Macy’s. This was a great day, apart from the weather – it chucked it down! So we decided to do a day of shopping and headed toContinue reading “27/11/2012 – We met the Man himself”
Today is Mummy Steph’s birthday! In the evening we went up the Rockefeller Tower to watch the sunrise, it was the most beautiful evening I think I’ve witnessed. Highly recommended if you’re in New York!
We got the ferry to Staten Island today to get pictures of the lady herself, the Statue of Liberty. It’s a great way to get close view of the front of the statue, and a fun (free!) boat ride! Another day of walking and exploring!
We visited Ground Zero today, the memorial site for the 9/11 attacks on the Twin Towers. It was a sollum atmosphere, very peaceful and respectful. We spent a lot of today on the hop-on-hop-off NYC tour bus learning more about the areas, but my was it damned cold!
