Thanks for all your birthday wishes and comments regarding my finger, normal service is now resumed and it's now fully functional!
As you know we went to London this weekend. We stayed just over Westminster Bridge in a hotel we're familiar with. Hubby had phoned ahead to say it was my birthday and un be known to us we were given an upgrade to a suite with a fantastic view of the London Eye and a slight view of Big Ben!!! We couldn't believe it. There was also a card with a bottle of wine waiting for us when we got in! Copies of Vogue and Homes and Gardens were laid out along with lots of other goodies.
It was lovely to come back after 8 hours of walking and sit with a glass of wine watching the London Eye go round.
The boys were in their element as they got goodie bags with pretend money which they could exchange for treats at the hotel.
We did pack an awful lot in and walked for miles. We did use the tube a few times but due to underground works and the Trooping of the Colour it was packed so tried to avoid it where possible.
Lots of sightseeing, free museums aquarium, a touch and feel walk round Liberty's was lovely and full of opulence. I did spend some of my birthday money in there which I'll show you on another post.
The Queen was having an air display at 1pm on Saturday which we were fortunate enough to see in full glory - in fact, it was Toby's highlight of the weekend!
Once emerging from a tube station later in the afternoon, I thought I saw what was a naked body on a bicycle - turned to hubby to say.....only to find more and more naked bodies riding bikes. This was full on stark naked - men, women, old and young all riding through the streets of London...........Some had protected their modesty but most were obviously very keen to let the wind whistle through! There were even men on roller blades gliding through letting everything dangle.....
I believe they were trying to raise awareness of how vulnerable cyclists feel when riding through London. You wouldn't catch me doing it though!
People were lining the streets in amazement, but you'd be surprised how many people were taking photo's......I won't be gracing you with any as I didn't take 1 single one.
We did quickly dart into the National Gallery for culture of a different kind!
All in all a great weekend.
PS - Sorry my photo's are a bit random - I either forgot to take photo's or it was just too busy to click away.
