Emily loved the London Eye. Again, she could run around, safe within the capsule and she absolutely loved seeing the red buses and the trains on the bridges.
After we went on the eye, we went to Covent Garden. She loves it round there with all the street performers, the crowds, the shops and stalls...she just loves new sounds, sights and smells. Sharon and I like there too...it's pretty chilled; there's a 'Fat Face' shop there for Sharon and the music there for me. In the market area, there's usually a quartet playing outside the cafe's and I find it a nice little touch. There's also a geezer who plays guitar there who sells cd's of his own music and you know, he's very good. Another must place to see (& hear) if you're in London.
This weekend, we were going to go to the St Patricks day celebrations in Trafalgar Square, but with the poor weather forecast, it looks like we'll look for a drier activity.
Another option we had this weekend was for Battersea park childrens zoo. I loved my time living in Battersea and the park is beautiful; I just find it wierd that I never even knew the zoo existed until recently! We're going to go to London zoo soon as well sometime in the near furure. The last time we went there was in the 1990's with Sharons nieces, Laura & Elaine. I loved that day out. In fact, whenever those two came over, we always loved taking them out - I think it was an excuse for me and Sharon to be able to plausibly act like big kids as well!!!
As friends & family are now aware, Emily will be christened (Further details will be sent to you all soon), the god parents have been warned off, and we're looking forward to a really great day to come.
That good news was followed shortly after by some more good news about the change of venue for my next job...I'll be expecting people to come across...I'll get cheap hotel rates sorted out!!
