I won't have the opportunity to have a " hen or stag" night with my best friend Nuala for she is travelling for the next 7 weeks or so. She is off to New Zealand, Fiji, Vietnam and Japan with her hubby but will be back to " give me away" on the 6th of March, so today's trip to London is the nearest I will get to a send off , so to speak.
We've had a lovely day.....a quick jaunt around The Institute of Sexology Exhibition at the Welcome Institute, a nice lunch in a sushi restaurant Nizuni on Charlotte Street followed by champagne in the Charlotte Street Hotel ( v posh) and theatre at the Wyndham to see the much praised KING CHARLES III.
I loved it all.....we barely had time to say goodbye before I caught the tube to Euston ......not a bad day's itinerary seeing that I have only been in London just over seven hours....
I just had time to grab a sandwich from marks' before waiting for my platform to be announced when a woman of around 40 poked me on the arm and bellowed " it's strange seeing you without Winnie"
I had absolutely no idea who she was but apparently she reads " Going Gently " every day
" you look neater than I expected" she said
Fame at last!
And as promised hello to Karen from Wrexham.( she's on the same train!)
