Afternoon all - we're home
Lovely couple of days in London. Had a fantastic time at the V&A yesterday. Freebie admission, excellent (freebie) tour of the medieval galleries (my particular interest), very reasonably priced lunch in stunning surroundings and just so many exquisite treasures to see. Will return very soon to visit some of the other galleries.If I lived in or nearer to London I would go and work / volunteer there in a heartbeat.
£20 to get in Westminster Abbey seemed quite reasonable after a visit to Fortnum & Mason last night.
Large box of chocolates (2kg) - £195
A bottle of 50 year old whisky - 70cl - £22,000 (yes - that's twenty two thousand pounds!! ). But you do get a certificate with it to confirm it's genuine - so that's ok. I bought two - so that's a couple of stocking fillers sorted
You've all been nice and chatty but I've only skimmed through what's been said because some of you were talking about the final episode of The Missing. I was 'busy' drinking margaritas last night so will watch it tonight.
Kittens are looking perky Obelixx. You'll get nothing done with kittens in the house - you just have to play with them all the time.
Get those electrics sorted soonest Clari. Don't forget you'll be asked for electrical certificates of compliance etc when you sell the house and some purchasers' solicitors will get very twitchy if you can't supply them.
