London

On Saturday my husband was at a conference in London so I went in on the train to meet up with our eldest son, Ben. He met me from the train and we went on a bit of a tour, starting in Marylebone Highstreet. Here there are lots of nice shops and cafes. We carried on walking until we came to Oxford Street and on route went into the Margaret Howell shop in Wigmore Street. We also went into Marimekko where we came across this family of Moomins. I took this photo for Primrose & Maggie who each have a Moomin in their cot.
The blossom was out in the parks and looked beautiful in the sunshine


We bought Krispy Kreme donuts and ate them outside The Wallace Collection Gallery before going in to admire the 'finest collection of art ever assembled by one family'.

We then went to meet my husband and went for supper at Cha Cha Moon off Canaby Street. After this we went to see Van Morrison performing Astral Weeks at the Royal Albert Hall. We had great seats and the performance was amazing. What a fantastic day!

I wish that I could have gone with you. It sounds like a very interesting day...especially the art museum and the Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Of course, I would have enjoyed just walking the streets with you and learning everything new, since I have never been to your country. Thank you for sharing a fun day.

It sounds like a perfect day.

They recently closed our Krispy Kreme shop here and I so miss those still warm doughnuts.
