:: a walk through the drizzle to Hyde Park, onto Buckingham Palace, down to Westminster, and into the extraordinary history of Westminster Abbey.
:: the highly anticipated Making of Harry Potter exhibition. The attention to detail throughout the films is amazing, and the blueprints were quite beautiful. We entered the Great Hall, discovered the secrets of the invisibility cloak, walked along Diagon Alley, rode broomsticks and rode on the Knightbus. Oh, it was fun.
:: I’ve enjoyed the aplomb with which the children have taken to hopping on and off the Underground.
:: An enormous day at the Natural History Museum, we could have spent days there. Jock declared it all his favourite, Cecie really enjoyed planning her own expedition in the Cocoon, and Lill (bless her) declared the Geology section her favourite. Did you know there are 20,000,000 items in the collection? It is nothing short of a mind boggling place. I love it.
