Going to the smoke
Going to London on the train later to stay with my big son.
Meeting up with my utterly gorgeous niece for lunch. She's down from Liverpool having a job interview and staying with her boyfriend.
Then we'll all meet up and just hang out.
Tomorrow cause it's going to be a lovely warm sunny day Kit and I are going on an open top bus to see the sites. He's lived there three years now and I lived there in my 20s and neither of us have done this before. But when I was visiting my old neighbours in Oxford a couple of weeks ago we did it for fun and it's a really great way to as a place you think you know really well.
Of course I was the infuriating woman on the bus who did know that there is another Bridge of Sighs in Cambridge and the names of Henry VIIIs wives!!!
So it will be interesting to check out what I know about London!
Then Saturday night I'm going with Kit to see Billie Elliot. This is the first time I'll have been to theatre in London since I worked there and saw the fabulous Chorus Line.
The theatre tickets are my Christmas present from Kit. He started this wonderful trend when he bought me two tickets for last years birthday to go Kew Gardens to see Jools Holland, a wonderfully memorable night out.
Wonder if he'd like to do the same again and see Jamie Cullum this year??
Hope you have a lovely weekend with people you love.
