Regrouping



Well, we are back from London, and have two days now to unpack, get washing done, and repack for our week in Ullapool. London was a great success. We drove down on friday afternoon, stayed overnight at Cheltenham- my first visit there, but hopefully not my last. It is such an elegant town once you get off the High St, fabulous regency buildings, parks and loved the pumproom too. We went to Stow on the Wold before heading off to London. Stow was very pretty, very cotswoldy- that gorgeous golden sandstone makes the buildings glow. London was very busy, we fitted in lots of sightseeing- The KYLIE exhibition at the V&A was fun, and gave me lots of ideas for scrapbook pages too. We also went to the Science Museum and the Natural History Museum. We shopped on Kings Rd, Marylebone High ST (VVRouleaux and Cath Kidson were too gorgeous) and Covent garden, which is always a fun place to visit. We spent time on the Southbank- the London Eye- queues were too big so didn't go on. That wasn't too disappointing as Malcolm and the kids have been before. We went to the Tate modern and the kids had a shot on the giant chutes. Malcolm and Jack went football stadium visiting- Fulham, Arsenal and Chelsea. We ate at the Stcokpot on Kings rd- very cheap, and Wagamama at Earls Court. Love Wagamamma. So just before we head off I thought I would upload two LOs that were published in this months' Scrapbook Inspirations mag. One is the beach at Achmelvich, where we are headed tomorrow for a week, and the other is jack as a baby. I loved doing the doodling on that page.

Hee hee! Your comment about Cheltenham made me giggle! We used to live there & parts of it certainly don't fit in with the posh Regency reputation it has! It is a great town, we miss it lots. Did you go to the Pump Rooms & taste the waters (yuck)? Enjoy the rest of your hols. Emily ;O)
