We just got back from our annual New Year trip to stay with friends in Suffolk.....thanks Zoe, it was great fun as always! As part of our celebrations we usually take a trip to London......this year was no exception.......
and as with all good trips we started out with coffee and cake at ROSE BAKERY........this is a little hard to find, it's on the top floor of a shop called DOVER STREET MARKET in DOVER STREET.....well worth searching out......I had this yummy carrot cake tower!!!
CHRIS BEETLES GALLERY on RYDER STREET (just off Piccadilly) where there is an exhibition (till Jan 8th) of 75 new works by QUENTIN BLAKE.......they were for sale too, not like I could afford them.....we just went for a look!! Don't you love the title? FRABJOUS BEASTS AND FRUMIOIUS BIRDS!!!
ROYAL ACADEMY OF ARTS on PICCADILLY.......while on the tube we saw an advert for the GLASGOW BOYS exhibition and as it was just down the road from the other gallery we decided to go for it......well worth it!!
EROS on PICCADILLY CIRCUS to get the tube to THE BRITISH MUSEUM for the main event of the day!!!
BRITISH MUSEUM is the
ANCIENT EGYPTIAN BOOK OF THE DEAD......oh my goodness!! Well worth seeing........it features a 37 metre long version of a book of the dead.
.DISHOOM ......on Upper St Martins Lane (all but in Covent Garden)
and oh yes......the food was good!
I hope you've enjoyed this potted version of our trip to London and maybe take some ideas of places to visit!!
Finally, if you have managed to trog all the way through this post (bless you!!) I am going to ask a question..........I would be interested in knowing if you think I should change my blog background?? Honest answers appreciated!! I LOVE the skeletons but have had them for ages now and wonder if a change would be good....not that I can find much else I like........what do you think? Change or not?
