You´re soooo nice...I was just being silly,thank you for all the offered tea though.
I´m in Northwood near London.I will probably go to the Natural History Museum tomorrow or thursday so´s the wee one can see dinosaurs.My sister also would like to take my eldest,who´s also along for the fun,to do the Chelsea stadium tour.

The other two are in summer camp.It´s so nice just to have two kids,I can do a lot more and am a lot more relaxed.My sister doesn´t hold with regular meals and sleep because she works shifts so we mainly eat very unhealthy indian ready made lunches or pizzas and only sleep when we´re really tired.I´m in heaven!

We´ve been shopping in Watford today and have done a Kew Gardens day yesterday.
On Sunday,we went to Camden and afterwards visited at my brothers´,who lives near London Bridge,and had early dinner and a walk around the Bridge,the Tower and More London before going home in the evening.It´s been a really full week but I so enjoyed it and seeing my brother and sis again.

Pity I have to go back on Friday morning!But I do also miss the other two.I constantly feel like I´ve forgotten something! :D

BROC! :shock:

I travel to/from London Bridge everyday, and my office is about a ten minute walk from the Tower.

Bugger!

You´re soooo nice...I was just being silly,thank you for all the offered tea though. YOU are the silly one!!! If it was me I would have drunk tea with each and everyone of them lot... til it leaked out of my nose, my eyes and my toes!!! Glad you DID manage to see Toothy though. One down 254 to go!

It´s so nice just to have two kids,I can do a lot more and am a lot more relaxed.My sister doesn´t hold with regular meals and sleep because she works shifts so we mainly eat very unhealthy indian ready made lunches or pizzas and only sleep when we´re really tired.I´m in heaven! Yep I can understand that... the other two are back home in camp????? And they were okay with you going off galivanting around without them????? How did you manage that? Takes alot of the pressure off though and gives you a proper hol. Staying up late and eating junk food because you are having way too much fun with your visitors to cook??? You would fit right in at my place Broc! Bit of Indian and pizza isnt going to kill you mate.

But I do also miss the other two.I constantly feel like I´ve forgotten something! :lol: :lol: I was like that all last week. Didnt know what to do with myself. Spent most of my time double checking ... stuff! And the other two were all tied up so I couldnt even go visit them. In fact EVERYONE was busy (well I can understand since it was the first sunshine in the hols).

BROC IS BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACK !!!!!!!!

:D :D :D :D :D Yay! Yay! Yayyayyayayyy yay! :D :D :D :D :D



(I have NO idea what they are saying and singing about except "She's back".... I do hope its not too rude Broc...) :roll:

We missed you!

We had mugs made............

Shame we left Dug to do the ordering and he TOTALLY got sidetracked at the pub and got the spelling wrong... but hey its the thought that counts right?????

So lovely to see you again Broc. Will we continue to see you here once you get home? I hope so.
