Wednesday Frank and I went to London for the day. We caught the train from Northampton as it is cheaper than from Wellingborough, but there had been a broken down train a little earlier and all those passengers were on the train we caught. We were like sardines and couldn't fall over when the train swayed as there wasn't room! We got to London around 11 am and went to Leicester Square tube station to buy some tickets for a show that evening. We decided on The Jersey Boys. Frank and I went for a coffee and then headed over towards London Bridge as we had decided to visit a museum about the second world war. Next trip to London will find us visiting the Cabinet War Rooms I think.
We lunched before visiting the museum and then spent a couple of hours looking around the exhibits. This included an Anderson Shelter that you could sit in, lots of war time memorabilia and a mock up of a town caught in the blitz.
We then wandered over towards Trafalgar Square and stopped off in Ed's for a drink. I had one of their delicious malts and Frank had a Root Beer. We met up with Katie, who had been to an interview at UCL and then went to Pizza Express before the show started. The show was excellent and we all enjoyed it. We caught the 11 pm train and arrived home about 12.45am. Poor Katie's train didn't get into Bath until gone 1am so she was very late home.
Thursday was a trip to Manchester. Frank had a meeting there and while he was in his meeting, I wandered around the Trafford Centre. We then headed to Liverpool and met up with Lizzie. We took her to Wagamamas for dinner and then drove home. We got in about 11pm. It was good seeing both girls again.

It is ages since I blogged but I have managed to complete some more scrapbook pages of our US vacation. In fact I have finished one album. The trouble is by the end of this first album I have managed to scrap 30 pages and only 3 days of our 3 week holiday. I think I may need several albums if I carry on at this rate.
