A Day Off

Well thanks to Eirlys & John ( who have taken four dogs to their bosoms) and John & Mandy next door ( who have looked after the field) I have been given a pass to accompany my husband to London for a quick overnight jaunt.
I'll be back in Trelawnyd by noon tomorrow, The Prof is working in tbe capital for most of the week.
We've crammed a lot in

The Prof & I in The British Museum)

A quick visit to the British Museum ( above)
A cracking Indian meal at Dishoom at Covent Garden ( we had to queue outside!)
A walk town along the River
A free organ recital at Westminster Abbey ( I've never been)
Drinks in Soho
Followed by cinema at Leicester Square
( " A Little Chaos " with the fulsome Kate Winslett)

It's been a cracking Day

  6. You know, I think the Prof has quite warmed to your blog. He's in pictures now, and may even be taking some, though I think your arm is responsible for this one.

  8. Ooh, I'm going to "A little chaos" tonight. Alan Rickman, yeah! Sounds like a lovely break, Like Jo, I'm impressed with how much you've crammed in. I love the B.M. In my younger days I worked at the Natural History Museum for two years - I love museums!

  10. I sincerely hope that Eirlys & John haven't literally taken your dogs to their bosoms as they could have their nipples bitten off and what would life be like without nipples? One of God's better inventions in my view.

  11. That's what I love about Europe, you can just take quick day-trips to entirely new countries. In Australia it's literally an 8-hour drive just to get to the nearest state capital.

  12. Ohh, I had a meal at the place in Dishoom...the one in Covent Garden maybe? Spicy lamb chop as I remember....that was back when I was consulting with the company in Kent.

  16. Can't think of a more delightful day. Well, I could, but wouldn't matter here.

  17. When you have responsibilities 24/7, it is really a treat to have them suspended for even a short time and do things that feed your soul.

    Great photo!

  18. You've done more in a day than I do in a month. Cute photo.

    ReplyDelete
  19. How on earth can you do all that in one day; The British Museum itself takes a month (at the least).

  20. Gorgeous photo of you and your husband (and I love the frequency and pride with which you use the word).

  21. Nopr, not a bit romantical, are you? I'm in a state of envy just now, the one (!) Indian restaurant in town has tumbled from the top of the deliciousness heap to the bottom of the 'I want to go again' list.
    They once did a crackin' khorma, a brilliant biryani... now even their naan is dicey.
    Ah well, sounds like a fabulous day, glad you got to accompany your husband!

    2. Just rub it in John! If I want Indian I have to make it myself!

  22. Cinema in Leicester Square, of all places? My, you must be flushed!
    (I only see that film in a few days time. Hope the largely negative reviews I've seen are wrong. But you already know.)

  23. Sounds like the perfect day!
    My husband is from London.... and we pop over from time to time, but not as often as I wished we could. Anyway, I can`t remember how I found your blog. But I liked the style, the images and text.,,,, Happy new week!Greetings from Norway.

  25. Glad that your Sunday turned out a lot better than Saturday!

  26. Looking forward to the review of 'A Little Chaos'. Big fan of Mr. Rickman but shy away from directors who also act in the film.
    The mummies are fab, aren't they?

  27. Do you both good - an early mini honeymoon?

  28. Good for you.....a little break is good for the soul.

  30. Chris' scarf pulled tight tells me it might be cold, but a fun trip together probably warmed you up.

  31. What a wonderful way to enjoy an outing with the one you love...with not one dog fanny insight!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Sounds great, much better than shite Saturday :) x

  33. Lovely photo.

    It looks as if Chris is saying 'Look what I have to put up with' ... but in the nicest possible way ;-)

  34. Oh that was bad timing (or good, you choose) we were at the V&A for the girlie's 18th on 14 Apr. We could have met up (rolls on floor laughing).
    Film looks good, thanks for review will give it a try.....when it's on telly due to lack of cash *sigh*
