I could bore you to tears with photos to be honest so I think I will cherry pick my fav bits of my recent London trip.
As the name suggests it formed part of my bucket list. I have just turned 47 - the age Dad was when he died - so I felt the need to do something I had always wanted to do - namely have tea at The Ritz!
My Sister in Law Linda and I planned a mini break for the end of the holidays to include our Meghan - and also meet up with my Son James whilst down there.
We stayed in a travellers hotel in Paddington - rough, ready but clean, with comfy beds and a fab shower !
Our focus on day 1 was to see this show
It was brilliant! Loved it all !
Next day we met up with my son James and headed for Trafalgar square
To visit the National Gallery - helping our Megs along with her art studies. James has been a number of times so was able to give her a whistle stop tour!
Next was my fav bit (aside being with my family)
Yes we got there with time to spare for a little photo pose !
Inside - we were speachless - such awesome surroundings........
The tea room !
Where our table was waiting
and our menu ready to be chosen.
dainty little sandwiches
fresh scones and pastries - we couldnt manage all the other sugar laden things offered such as cakes and trifles !
Time for a little photo of my youngest two - it felt odd not having our Tom there too.
Our last day we did the tourist thing and boarded an open top bus for a live commentary tour - which we all loved. Look at that amazing blue sky - not a cloud to be seen!
This was one of the many spendid views of the London eye.
Couldnt resist this pic - extreme window cleaners !
as we left the bus we saw this fab Sushi bar - megs loves Sushi so we need to go back so she can sample it - but the crafter in me loved all the lit up fish swimming in the window!
At the train station - Megs had noticed the pianos there for anyone to play and fancied a go herself.
Here she is playing Bellas Lullaby from Twilight - its was lovely watching her sit there and play so confidently. The lady watching in the left of the picture was mesmerised and came over to speak to Linda and I - she was overcome with emotion at Megs playing. She was from Brazil and was meeting her daughter at st Pancras.
There was another piano deeper in the station - this was also being played this time by a beat boxing pianist - it was wonderful seeing young people with so much talent just entertaining because they love it.
I had an amazing few days with amazing family - we met fabulous people, friendly, chatty people and had a wonderful time together - I am going to do it all again !!
Hope I have not bored you with pictures x
Thanks for stopping by x
Happy Sunday x
