Well, only a couple of days till our visit now, got bus tour booked, table at Planet Hollywood and some tickets for the recording of a new TV show at the London Studios. My concerns now of course are the weather, just hoping that travelling down on the train won't be a problem and that the Thames holds back in Twickenham, where we are staying!

A few photos from our trip:

The overflowing Thames at Twickenham!

 

Chinatown

Well, you have to do this one don't you (we're used to white phone boxes!)

Street artists in Trafalgar Square

 

Photos from the bus tour

And from the bank of the Thames

Changing Guard

 

Other general shots

Twickenham swan

As you can see I had no trouble finding things to take photos of!!

What, No tornadoes? No houses swirling off into space? No lost scotty dogs? No wicked witches of W1?
Bit of an anti-climax, if you ask me!

Still, your home safe. That's something, I suppose!

And you know what they say.... "There's no place like home... "There's no place like home..."There's no place like home..."

We went to see the Cheapside hoard last week, very interesting. Have to pay to go in this special exhibition though, about a tenner, less concessions or family tickets, plus 1 to use a compulsory locker. I wouldn't have thought it was very good for particularly small children, as the displays and signs are raised up.

The Museum of London where it is, is excellent and free.

Really sorry, I've only just seen this, hope you are now making a good recovery and enjoying being back at work.
