Around Here

Things have been quiet today, and we're all feeling a little flat.
We've had a hectic week, what with four extra people in the house.  But I wouldn't have missed it for the world.
Highlights included:
Making like tourists at Buckingham Palace.
Posing in Westminster. 
Checking out the London Eye
And rewarding the boy who doesn't really like heights. 
A day out at Legoland.  The sunniest day of the week. 
 My favourite part was Miniworld.
Not my idea of a fun day out, but the two older boys loved it and The Boy Child loved squirting them when they were on the water ride.
We went on a river cruise.  Notice how all the other passengers opted to sit downstairs, under cover and out of the icy wind.
We called in at the Science Museum.  Which was packed.
The football fans went on the Wembley Tour.
We called in for tea and cake at Chelsea.
We had such a great time exploring London through fresh eyes.  We had such a great time squeezing seven round the kitchen table for supper each night.  We had a great time drinking beer and champagne.  We had a great time laughing at memories, old and new.  
We had a great time.

Looks like a busy fun packed week :) Emily and I were just saying we might come up and act like tourists during her summer holidays (which start in June as she's writing her GCSEs). x

Always fun to see things through fresh eyes - looks like you all had fun. Glad Legoland was on a good day, we love Miniland too.

That looks like so much fun. I remember visiting lego land when I was younger. Always a good day out.

Looks like a fantastic week, no wonder it seems a bit flat now they have gone. Can you imagine how many lego bricks it takes to make the model of the city of London?

Looks like a really busy,exciting week.
I don't like heights either and could only go on the London Eye at night....as somehow it didn't seem as high!!!

You did pack a lot in Ruth - it is lovely to share experiences with your visitors. As you say, you see things with new eyes....
