But i am back keystroking yet again to ell you all about the past few days which remarkably have been quite busy 🙂
First of all how lousy is this weather being? I mean 16 degrees celsius and constantly raining!!! Helloooo up in the sky, It is July in UK which means sunshine, 25+ degrees!!! Get a grip will you!!
Ok calmness returns 🙂
On saturday morning me and Helen walked down the hill into Stroud for the start of our weekend in London for our 11th weddiing annivesary, be no surprise that we got absolute drenched just walking that 1 mile lol, it’s times like that when i really do begin to dislike rural public transport links 😛
Anyway amazingly enough the train was bang on time at 08:03 and was quieter than i thought it would be so we managed to pick our own seats and not the reserved ones which would have put us 5 rows apart lol, i do wonder what wisdom these reservations get made when you are booking 2 tickets for travel and they seperate the reservations 🙂
We arrived into Paddington station at around 09:45 and then the fun began so to speak, we decided to jump on the tube to Baker St and head for Madame Tussuads but when we got there we decided we may not have bothered as the queue for purchasing tickets was streched all the way down Marylebone Road and that was without the queues of at an estimate of 6-700 people and on top of that it was raining still!!
So off we trotted to Piccadilly Circus and the memories flooded back, i remember coming to London in the later eighties early nineties as a teenager/early 20’s and boy how it had all changed!! For starters no Tower Records!!!! I knew it weren’t there from the media but even so!! lol
And i guess London is run by women seeing as there is 4 floors of M and M madness, so much so you can smell the Chocolate lol, the kids would have loved it, just don’t expect to buy m and m’s as you would in the local shop or even at easter, as these are quite pricey for not a lot lol
Without telling you the whole itinerary of our trip i will just say we had a rather good day, so much so, we didnt know where the time went!! Helen managed to go on Tower Bridge for the first time which she seemed to enjoy 🙂
Our overnight stay was a Travelodge in Edmonton, just 25 Min’s from Central London and i was quite impressed as some travel lodges can be very droll, but this one was bright, clean, polite staff and not overheated for a change 🙂
On the Sunday we decided to hit the London Eye, so we were on the Embankment by 09:50 and we timed it to perfection, from starting to queue to get tickets to boarding was no more than 10-15 Min’s!!!
I will post some more images later tonight as time is catching up with me lol!!
