Then the next day we were lucky to get a sudden change in weather and got lots of sun, so we headed down to Spitalfields Market. It was like heaven for me and I could have spent an age wandering round and buying lots of gorgeous stuff, but when you can hear your other half huffing and puffing behind you, its time to leave!
We were expecting a downpour but as the good weather continued we decided to ditch our tube cards and walk the scenic route back to the coach station. We didn't do too bad either. First we saw Leicester Square, followed by Trafalgar.
Here is Mr Nelson
We then grabbed some lunch, although I'm not telling you where. It may offend any foodies reading this ;)
Then continued down towards St James Park
Buckingham Palace from St James Park
We had a great time and I would love to make it a yearly thing for me and L, especially if we get to stay in the same hotel.
I've been to London so many times before but when your young, you dont take the sights in properly and really appreciate your surroundings. Well I certainly didnt anyway.
Having grown up time rocks.
But once again, I have been brough back down to earth with an almighty bang. I didn't get chance to report last weeks disaster, but one of my dogs (I wont name names but he smells and looks like a Beagle) stole and ripped to shreds my kids swap gift.
It took me two full days to calm down properly and I think I can safely say that the said dog will not go anywhere near my stuff anymore. Grrrrrrrrrr. So this week I have to remake the swap gift which makes it late and make a start on Apryls Fairy tale swap. I already know what I'm making for that so I am organised a little bit.
So for now, I will go and do my bit of blog reading and catch up with everyone elses crafty goodness.
