Took the bus to London on Friday and found our place easily since we have stayed here a couple of times. It's an apartment building close to the Tower, a good location  for walking and transit.
We were sorry to leave  Anne and Del. Our visit there was a good amount of getting out and about and cosily sitting and listening to the rain. Geoff had hoped to help Anne get a deck built in the back yard, but it was so rainy they could only work on it the last day. Anne buys almost everything online, including a deck kit. When we got back  from York the house was full of lumber. The other limiting factor was the scaffolding left up after they had their roof done last fall. She couldn't get them to come and take it down. Fortunately they turned up when we were there and it's finally gone.
We had a great day Thursday, going on a tour of C.S. Lewis's house. It is within walking distance of Anne's and it was a nice walk/limp over there on the only sunny day we have seen. There are people living there, students, one of whom led the tour. So some of the rooms we looked at were people's bedrooms. It was so amazing to be there where he wrote his books and lived his life. Stopped at the church after and looked through the graveyard.
Went to the British Museum yesterday. We found out which bus to take from here and walked over to the street only to find roadworks and a sign that said the stop was closed. So had to go to plan b after a lot of walking. At least we have learned to leave plenty of time to get places. We took a tour of highlights of the museum so as not to get stuck in one gallery for four hours.
Today we are going to  church at St. Paul's then to a theatre matinee, The Play That Went Wrong.
I have been the one to sort out our days so far so tomorrow Geoff is in charge.
I  brought the yarn Mom gave me for Christmas and have been knitting myself a sweater in our downtimes. I have never knitted a sweater before.
Home on Tuesday, it will be good to get back. We have FaceTimed with Jude, Tim and the boys a few times but I could use some real hugs.
