London Trip

Joe & I spent a great long weekend in London last week, we have been taking a trip to London around this time for the last 6 years.  It’s a chance for me to reminisce about my younger days when I lived in Watford and visited London frequently and a very hot summer of 1976 when Joe and I went to the London every day & went to the theatre every night for a week!!! 

This year Joe and I went to see the Jersey Boys at Prince Edward’s  Theatre which was about Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, great music, great show and tremendous atmosphere – I would definitely recommend it & I would go and see it again anytime.

Saturday morning was a visit to the Old Operating theatre followed by lunch at the George Inn.  The afternoon was spent  at the theatre & in the evening  we were also lucky enough to meet up with a friend we both knew in our Navy days at the Trafalgar for a drink, meal and catch up.  We talked so much Joe & I nearly missed the last train back to our hotel!!

Sunday was spent at the Tower of London followed by a trip down the Thames in a very luxurious Thames Clipper which sold costa coffee and took us to Greenwich again!!!

Joe and I had such a great time we can’t wait to go back again.

I made this card recently for a friends birthday – I love the butterflies on it – it’s the first time I’ve used this die in my big shot.


Well thanks for taking the time to read my blog

Lesley, first of all, I love your CAS card! Just gorgeous with that embossing folder and pretty butterflies. Very pretty.
All the photos are fantastic! I've never been to London so I'm glad you brought a little of it to me! Fantastic and I know you so have many memories there.
