I had great fun designing the bookmark for Elisa, and choosing her gifts.
Although we do not all post on the same forum and couldn't really chat about our progress everyone enjoyed this exhcange. I will share the other pictures as soon as I have them all.
Going back a week, our weekend in London without DS or DD was brilliant. We had a bargain price stay in a Travelodge, spent Saturday morning walking round Covent Garden, The Strand and over the Millennium Bridge to the Globe Theatre. We took in the tour and exhibition of the Globe which was really good, it was amazing inside to see how it was constructed. After the tour we walked along the South Bank, pausing for a sandwich and coffee at a riverside cafe, before crossing the Thames again at Lambeth Bridge. The weather was glorious and it was so relaxing just walking along looking at all the famous sights, past Tate Modern, London Eye and Big Ben. In the afternoon we went to the Tesco Wine Fair (something we do every year) and sampled many many wines. It's a great way to try some of the really expensive ones that we would never buy ourselves. Dinner at Bella Italia finished off a fabulous day.
