[visit from the mom...]

I had five days off when Mum came to visit, and we acted like tourists in my own town.  Hehe.  I've realised it's a good idea to see touristy sights and do touristy things in the town you live in.  There is much fun to be had. 

Here is some of the fun we had!

: :  Went to a West End show - Billy Elliot.  It was awesome!  I haven't seen the movie but cripes the kids can act!

 : :  Visited the Tower of London, where prisoners were held and even Ann Boleyn was beheaded there.  This big raven was hanging around outside.

: :  We went on the London Eye, and it was a stellar day for it!

: :  Rode the longest escalator on the tube network, along with a whole bunch of other escalators on the tube network.

: :  Of course we had to hit Buckingham Palace.  We made it just at the end of the changing of the guard and there were tonnes of people there.  Fun!

: :  Walked along the embankment to find some lunch and saw some rad art.

: :  Lastly we checked out my favourite, Borough Market.  So many awesome things there.  I brought a freshly made baguette and some rhubarb, vanilla and something else jam.

There you have it, a snapshot of our week doing tourist-ish things.  Now I'm off to research what is going on in London, tourist style.  Hope your week is going awesome!

Thanks for your comment - you really do make my day!
