WOYWW 18.08

  
Hi WOYWWers 

So, did you miss me last Wednesday?   I was on my Jolly Holidays.  We spent a fabulous week in London doing the "Tourist Thing"!!!  We saw all the sights Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, Downing Street, Tower Bridge etc. We visited Kew Gardens, The Science Museum, The Royal Observatory at Greenwich and The British Museum. Of course we also had time for some serious shopping too - Harrods, Fortnum & Masons, Covent Garden and Hamleys to name a few. I even managed a trip to Blade Rubber Stamps - a great rubber stamp and craft shop in Holborn!!!

We had such a great time that we have already booked to go back at the end of the year!!!  We are going to take the kids to see Santa Claus in Harrods and show them the Christmas Lights, and of course do some shopping too!!!

There's not much happening on my desk today, but I thought I'd show you a few holiday photos. 



My boys on the Meridian Line at Greenwich Observatory


Luckily we don't have room for this giant Teddy Bear at home !!!


Like Father Like Son !!!


Sorry, there are no kitty pictures today - I hope to have some new ones for you next week!!!

Anyway, thanks for stopping by today.  Don't forget to stop by Julia's Blog for a list of all the WOYWWers. 

Hugs

I love doing the tourist thing in London sometimes - I only live a few miles away, don't get up as much as I should. I do go to Kew a lot though (check out my photo blog in my side bar) Have a great week.

Oooh as soon as I saw you went to the British Museum I wondered if you had been to Blade Rubber! I personally have been Blade Rubber but not the British Museum! Nice to see you had a good time - did you buy any new goodies at Blade Rubber?

Looks like a great time was had by all! If you've stopped by my desk this week you'll see loads of stamped HM images, that's as far as I've got sadly and I don't think I'm going to get them in the post before I leave for my week camping trip this Sat. I also got 9 new ones, so I'll send you a pic of those as well!

Thanks for sharing your holiday & family pics. Guess I will never get to be an international traver as I would love to visit England, Scotland, and Ireland. Both sides of my family immigrated from those countries.

It's OK to miss the "boys" once in awhile, and this time it was fun to see the BOYS (and their dad). I always love seeing places I've never been to and may never see. You know I would never miss visiting you for WOYWW, but I contracted a computer virus on Wednesday. It's still not fixed, so I had to make sure I wasn't infecting you before I visited. Happy belated WOYWW.
