A week ago today we celebrated our annual “Fakesgiving” as an end to our time in London. Last year we celebrated Thanksgiving halfway between Canadian and American Thanksgivings, so we wanted to have a celebration before we left because we won’t be together for ‘real’ Thanksgiving this year.
I never really understand how potlucks always work out, even with my hands-off planning strategy. We had a delicious meal with wonderful company, and it was a nice way to round out the year kind of how it began. Only instead of giving thanks for new friends as we had last year, we gave thanks for the relationships we’ve built.
Then Monday we went back to Gordon’s Wine Bar for a bit of wine drinking in the cellar. Again, it was a nice cyclical way to say goodbye to one of my favourite spots with my favourite people. Plus there was cheese.
Come back soon for tales of dim sum and Shakespeare!
