Had a lovely lovely time in London seeing my Mum, my sister and being a tourist
I took Mum out for dinner on the Sunday night to a lovely Italian just down the road from the hotel. We were staying at a posh hotel just on Russell Square very near the British Museum.
We found a little cafe in the park to have coffee and breakfast every day - they were so friendly there which I was really surprised about as from living in London friendliness was not something I remembered hehehe.
On the Monday we walked down the National Gallery and wandered round. I really wanted to see the Da Vinci exhibition but it was sold out so we walked round everywhere else. I love the National Gallery and it was lovely to visit some old friends there as well as seeing some new stuff.
Went for yummy Chinese that night which was really really good.
Tuesday we met up with my sister!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was so good to see her - really really good. We walked round Covent garden and got hats and gloves and spent even more money lol (I also took Mum there on Monday). Then we walked down to the Courthauld for some more art.
We had Champagne at lunch because my sister got the PhD offer - which is fantastic news Then walked around in the sleet back up to Covent Garden and then back to the hotel.
Wednesday was British Museum day - which is my favourite place in London - I could literally spend days there and camp in the foyer at night. I find it fascinating. I spent more money that I dont have getting us all a souvenir but it was worth it. Then walked down to the South Bank and along to a coffee shop in Borough Market past the Tate Modern.
Then tube back and more eating and drinking. Forgot to say I took Mum for cocktails too lol. And went to Buck Palace walking down the Mall and back through the park.
Well I have missed out loads but it was a lovely holiday and I had such a good time. It was wonderful to see my sister and Mum was in good form for the most part. I took a zillion photos.
