A poetic type moment….

One week has passed by in the Windy City

Its hard to summarise, especially when trying to be Witty


We arrived with excitement, bags full and sun shone,

Being careful about plans, as soon they would be gone


Reunited with a brother, a son, a great friend,

A trip to crown fountains, a steak dinner the first night did end


On the Saturday to an arts fair, wondering around the old town

Sculptures, paintings and a Union Jack metal gown




The atmosphere was buzzing and the weather was hot

Walking through picturesque streets, there were a lot…




A stop off at O’Briens bar for a beverage & to watch the hawks play

Returning to the apartment for food & rooftop fireworks, great first day!




Sunday, a rest day, or so one would think,

Swimming and gym sessions and macys shopping (man I need a drink!)


In the evening to the 3 forks restaurant, for dining alfresco

And afterwards to Chicago blues festival, the ambience was the best(o)





Monday we took an architectural tour of the city

Here they turn block shapes and grey into pretty




Fascinated and educated we stepped off the boat tour

Walked along navy pier to view exhibited stained glass and much more


Walked to Buckingham fountains on Tuesday, blooming flowers everywhere

Met Sam for Mexican food and shoe shopping, the heat more than I could bear!




In the evening to the signature room, in the Hancock building, floor 95.

The views across Chicago at sunset make you happy to be alive




On Wednesday I chilled whilst mum went for a walk

Dinner at Julie bacons, lots to celebrate and lots of talk


On Thursday we cycled several miles down to the south

Back in the evening ravenous for food in the mouth




To the Lockwood restaurant we went, beautiful setting and posh

Chatted and dined on some pretty good nosh


Afterwards to the wit bar, a pretty cool place

The Chicago elite seemed to drink and dance here – at a fast pace


On Friday we met up with perrin my great friend

To the science and industry museum we stayed till the end


Journeyed up to the north to meet some family friends at theirs for dinner

BBQ and catch up talks, we were onto a winner




On Saturday Sam and I ventured out to meet Marcus for food

Went up to his beautiful apartment for drinks putting us in a good mood




After the pre-drinks we made out way to spring awakening festival

Electric house dance music, raving, but not like bestival


Sunday was mums last day so we said farewell with a brunch

At trump towers don’t you know, plates full with posh munch




It was with sadness we waved our mother farewell

She was off back to England with 3 weeks of awesome stories to tell




In the evening we met up with Perrin at the honky tonk bar

Then after tacos and laughter we got in a taxi car




Time is flying by, it’s strange how it does

Already new experiences alter what once was


So onto the next chapter, in Chicago with Sam

Time is precious and there is much still to plan


I realise that in keeping a blog every day

It May be quite ambitious as some would say


So with this in mind and as I continue on

I will blog when I can, interesting things I stumble upon…
