Peter had just started back to work after his stay in hospital when the kids stopped for spring holiday. The were back at school 3 days and then had a long weekend for easter, back for three days and then off for the Royal Wedding and May Day - it felt like they were never at school in April! For most of May I have been working extra hours to cover for a colleages maternity leave so have not had much time to myself. Anyway enough of my excuses!
We got the 8:40am train from Glasgow to London on the Thursday. No better way to get there - we were in London just after 1pm. Caught the tube to Tower Bridge and dumped our bags in the hotel. After a bit of a walk along the riverside we headed round to the London Eye. Not having a head for heights I took a bit of persuading but in the end they talked me round (also it's quite embarrasing when your 10-year old thinks you're a scardy cat).

After dinner at My Old Dutch (a Dutch pancake house in Holburn) we went to see Wicked. It was amazing and even Peter enjoyed it.
The V&A (having a bit of work done!)
On Friday we visited the Science Museum where Becky the adrenalin junkie talked Peter into going on a flight simulator with her. Apparently she spent most of the time flying upsidedown! We also had a quick trip into the V&A as it is just across the road from the Science Museum. Finished up with a lovely meal in China Town.
