That's a wrap to our saturated but extremely pleasurable London weekend. A post birthday treat for Isla and a pre birthday for Lekh. We had a few requests from the kids and we did them all except one(tate), all in two days! LOTS OF WALKING, NOT FOR THE FAINT, INVEST IN GOOD SHOES! Some organisation and sticking to the timetable much as possible, nothing felt rushed too! 😎
Walk through Hyde park from where we stayed to Natural history museum, which is out of this world! Lekh wanted to see Andy's clock(from #cbeebieshq #andysprehistoricadventures)and
in his words the museum is "mindblowing"!
Science museum is epic! The kids cannot quite believe they saw a real rocket, moon lander-command module and the movie "legend of apollo" had them absolutely psyched! Rockets, satellite, probes & landers-- the the kid's minds blown!🤩🤯
Meeting our friend, the super cool and super lovely @fatbunnybakery,(officially my favourite Swede😍) and her family. Meeting little Charlie in from whom I received the most embracing cuddles, had my heart fluttering!(Ida, You must come to Glasgow, we owe you loads of haggis 😂!!) .
Walk to Thames for a boat ride to see tower and London bridge (another request by Lekh- #gojetters).
Hubby's a huge politics fan so visit to Westminster also fulfilled, though I'm not sure if he was happy or angry when we were there! 😅
Isla's requests-visit Parliament square to see suffergist Millicent Garrett Fawcett's staue then British museum to see the Lewis chessmen. Ending the trip with walk down Gower st to see where Millicent Fawcett lived and died, which was on the way to #euston
where we'd catch our train back home! .
On the train now reflecting on our trip as I type this, best and the one not-so-nice moment which involved the most incredulous meltdown by the smallest member of fambam, it was bad 😓😭 He's relfecting too, with a smile and tilted head says "im not sure why i was thatt upset"!!
Also now realising of our aching legs but undeniably our hearts very full! I highly recommend a last minute trip, shocking the system and throwing rules & routine out the window! So good for the Soul! 🙏🏾🤘🏾✌🏾💪🏾👟🤗😍😎
