I hadn’t travelled to London for almost three years and then today, I was here in the capital again, in just two weeks!
Recently, it was the rather excellent Doctor Who Experience with Jo; this time something much less timey-wimey – today, a small reunion of ex-school chums (Valerie, Hazel and Bob) and all official members of The Old Croydonians’ Association too!?
Our venue of choice was the German Gymnasium (ehh?, no, not that type – thankfully!) instead, the popular eatery nestled between St Pancras and Kings Cross stations. 👍
We weren’t to be disappointed! A German-themed menu together with excellent service! As an example of the latter, our Waiter spotted Hazel on the receiving end of some birthday cards – and when our Desserts arrived, Hazel also received a mini-birthday cake too, complete with a lit candle! Nice touch!! 😉
After the meal, we took the short walk to the British Library and enjoyed a cuppa on their Terrace. It was too blowy to sit outside, but it was still a very relaxed location with an unhurried atmosphere – the perfect end to our mini-reunion!
Let’s do it all again sometime soon! 😉
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 are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
