Friday Smiles

 Sorry a little photo heavy today- Arriving in London On Weds for the day with one of my work mates and an ex pupil. Thankfully Max is brilliant at reading the tube maps and we travelled all over the place.

 First stop was the Shard - Last year we went on the London Eye and while on it decided that the shard would be this year. Even in pouring rain still a fab view from level 69 - Don't be put off by the lifts - they took about 5 seconds to go 33 floors!

 Up on level 72 and you are outside!

 Next years trip - The gardens in the sky at 20 Fenchurch street ( the walkie talkie) 


 The view from the ground.

 View from the River boat and SUNSHINE at last.

 The Thames at sunset.

We popped into Harrods and sampled treats in the food halls. (I picked out a few Christmas presents just in case Hubby wins the lottery ;) )

We bought a treat or two - these sweeties work out at £1.38 each!! I ate them !
So ,still smiling after a lovely day and not over my poor cars MOT at over £500 eeek.

Okay - if you are of a delicate disposition , look away now.
I posted this on Face book yesterday ..

ha ha - Have a great week!

Fab photos of your visit to London.....not sure I'd be brave enough to go up so high so thanks for sharing your pics from the top :-)
As for the ocean in the last pic? Well, I looked and looked but alas I couldn't see the ocean. ;-)

I'd love to get up the Shard, those pics really tempt me to get there one day. I went on the Eye when I was invited to have lunch on the terrace of the House of Lords! Woo hoo!
