Hello there! Not many of you may read this as I've just discovered that once again my posts are not updating on other peoples blogs so unless you visit me at random you won't know about this or some of my other posts. This is all so frustrating I thought that I had got rid of the problem - last time it took yonks to sort itself out and I don't know how, whether it corrected itself or whether I pushed the right button when experimenting! It may be that when I was trying to get word verification sorted that I pressed something by mistake but I think not, I'm probably just jinxed!
Anyhow, many "THANKS" to those that did manage to drop by!
Without further ado - a short post of our time in London which seems like ages ago now. The last post was photo heavy with street art - this post is much lighter!
The above was taken after our tube exit at Westminster from the way back from seeing Quartermain's Terms. It was impossible to locate a free taxi and so into the underground we had to go. My God was it heaving - Friday night revellers pushing and jockeying for position on the platforms!
And as we almost arrived at our destination - all the taxis seemed to be free! The following night we went to see Mama Mia and managed to make a quick exit from the theatre and got a taxi. It surprised me that the taxi was actually cheaper than the underground - even though both journeys was equal distance!
On both Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning we were here - glorious Trafalgar Square to visit the National Gallery, National Portrait Gallery and of course, my favourite shop in this part of town - Waterstones. The shop is huge and has a ma-hoo-sive selection! I came away with three books as did KP.
A fox for a sporran!
Meet Lucy - a bird of prey who stops those pesky pigeons from returning to Trafalgar Square!
Those nasty pigeons weren't too far away though - it was quite literally a game of cat and mouse!
Looking at that beak - you can tell, despite the pigeons numbers who would win should there be a fight!
We have been to Devon for a few days - more on that in another post.
Must dash back to the washing and ironing and all other boring household chores. We have no heating and no hot water - the gas man is expected tomorrow morning and so at least by doing the housework I'm keeping warm!
Until next time,
