As we’ve said on this week’s recap, Andrea’s been in my neck of the woods for the last week and we were lucky enough (this, because we live on opposite sides of the world) to spend most of the weekend together. The only thing that could have made it better would have been if Westy could have joined us, but Andrea brought me a present of a toy koala so she would be with us in spirit :-).
If you follow me on twitter, you may have seen that a couple of weeks ago I found this in a toyshop, quite by chance:
So quite obviously, while we were having a weekend of fangirling and general silliness, Westy and McG should be able to have some quality time together, right? Well, let’s see what they got up to…
They went on the Tube…
…where they pretended not to know each other (when in Rome, or in London, as the case may be).
Then they went to the Victoria and Albert Museum. McG liked the V&A, it had lots of visual aids, like how to kill and gut animals. #useful
(and he doesn’t see how Madeline and Danny could disapprove. After all, it’s culture.)
They had a delicious and romantic lunch in the beautiful V&A restaurant…
But he found Westy’s idea of shopping baffling.
They’re not blue and they don’t have pockets. Mystifying. Still, there were some really ugly booties on the next table and he was glad Westy didn’t notice those. He gets enough of that at work.
On the plus side, he did remember to pick up a new cammo pencil (because Monkey pinched the one he had and is now using it as make-up, honestly what is the world coming to?):
Hmmmm, black or brown? Probably not violet. Or Navy (he really wanted to get the navy, for sentimental reasons).
The shops were hectic and noisy (McG dropped and rolled on the way out of Zara, that’s never a good sign) so they went for a relaxing walk in the park. They found a lovely tree:
And then Westy joined him, because you know, koalas are better tree-climbers than SEALs any day.
Westy and McGarrett sitting in a tree…
They played hide-and-seek for a while, but because McG had his cammo pencil with him…
Then Westy said ‘how are you going to get that off your face?’ and he replied ‘I’m just going to go for a swim’ and she said ‘are you serious?’ and he was serious.
And then he was shirtless, which was great.
They were pretty exhausted by then, so they decided to go back to the hotel for a nap before dinner. The hotel room had a choice of pillows.
No, soft is not a good option.
And what happened after that is between Westy, McG and the pillow, but I can tell you…
…that they never made it to dinner ;-).
We SO wish you could have been there with us, Westy! One day :-).
