All plans have been finalised, approved ("Gee, am so excited I may pee!" - Lorna), booked where appropriate and paid for. I've got my "proper" shoes (ugly as hell but soooooo comfortable), a range of comfy, casual clothes and a capacious yet stylish bag. Childcare has been sorted out, batteries bought for the camera and some (but not all) guilt presents purchased for David, Mac and dogs. Mac is in a state of excitement about his next two weekends ("I would like weekends every day mummy!") and I'm spending the next couple of days cooking and freezing dinners for the next fortnight. David has sulkily put away the takeaway menus.....

So.....deep breathing......excursions will include the Britain at War exhibition, London Dungeons, Hayes Galleria, Imperial War Museum, HMS Belfast, Hampton Court, Camden Lock, Globe Theatre, St Pauls Cathedral, London Zoo, Thames Barrier, London Eye, Tea at Bea's, Tower of London, Harrods, Selfridges and Kensington Palace. At one point I thought I'd over-egged the whole "war, death and destruction" aspect but hey, our visitors are happy!

Gosh - you could be my tour organizer any day -

I'm feeling particularly sorry for you about the shoes..pity that.

I will be reading your reports with great interest - despite having lived in London for over fifteen years, I haven't visited half of those places. Naughty Mya.

Surely the order would be Selfridges, Harrods etc working back towards all things historical? Oh am I just becoming too obsessed with shopping? Good luck!

Kelly said...

Seems like yo have every minute of every day accounted yo have a print out? And what about an umbrella (for them to follow in crowds a la Japanese)?

Good luck!

Aims - I'm sure I'll be exhausted but the planning has been fun!

Mya - I will report back and even supply some pics! Haven't been to half of these places either so it'll be an experience......

Rosie - my sister Bea is the Tour Guide in Charge Of Shopping and that was the only day she was free!

Kelly - hm, not thought of that. could get some deely boppers I suppose, am sure I can get some Union Jack ones from any of the souvenir stalls!

All about me

My photo
Nunhead, London, United Kingdom
I'm a mum of one, wife of one and owner to several dogs, a variety of breeds and sizes. I live in the up and coming area (or so they say) of Nunhead and have mad neighbours, strange friends and certifiable relatives. I shop locally, although I do defect to Sainsburys once a week - shoot me now local shopkeepers.
