I wish I could chalk the long absence up to jet lag but that really only covers about 5 days of it. The last 2 weeks of our LA trip were wonderful. But I'll catch you up fast and get on with the present.
First things, first, I turned 40! Stephen and Huck told me they were going to the beach and disappeared. I was a bit annoyed but more because we had some work to do than my birthday.
They returned with cake, perfume and beautiful new handbag that I love. Sneaky.
And because the money wasn't flying out of our bank account quite fast enough...
We took the kids to Disneyland. Got there when they unlocked gates, did the character breakfast, the ears, the whole shebang. Left as the street sweepers were cleaning up the conteffi from the parade and put the kids in their jammies for the car ride home. They were asleep before we got out of the parking garage. A near perfect day.
Then it was on to Texas where we hung out with family, hit Chuck E. Cheese, did a little shopping (thanks Mom!) and repacked all our bags from summer in LA and Texas to fall and winter in New York, London & Luxembourg.
Then the long overnight flight to London. Oy! Huck is the only one who slept a few hours. I didn't get a wink but did watch Winter's Bone. The next 2 or 3 days were a bit of a blur but at least it was a good movie.
We've been in London for 2 weeks now, menacing the roads in our wee little car. We've settled into our apartment, met all the actors, had a read through of the script and yesterday we started filming. More on that in the next post. Now you're all caught up and I'll try to keep it that way.
As the locals say, Cheers!
