…loads come along all at once!
I was London-bound today to meet up with my good friend Angela C – and a trip round the London Transport Museum in Covent Garden. On the way down, I was surprised to see Denise M join the train at Bedford and so we spent the rest of the journey catching-up.
Next stop for me was Covent Garden, and the Tube station. I cheated and used the lift after being reminded over the tannoy that climbing the stairs is ‘equivalent to walking up five slights of stairs’! -Err, no thanks!!!
Angela arrived not long after and we soon found our bearings after the obligatory coffee-stop.
We were soon at the Museum and I’d quite forgotten how much was packed into this place. It was well worth the visit as they’ve made some big changes to the layout since I was last there, and it’s also the 150th anniversary of the London Underground (Google Translate = ‘Metro’) – so there was even more to see!
After about an hour-and-a-half, we were both ‘museumed-out’ so we headed off for somewhere to eat. Just round the corner was Loch Fyne – Covent Garden and that seemed like a good place (plaice?) to eat. Service was great and the food was very tasty.
It was a great day in London – even he Sun came out (and this is OCTOBER!)
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s!
My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community.
But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure!
On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there’s no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
