~*~ London Trip Day 2..........~*~

After a full English breakfast at the hotel, we caught the 73 bus direct to the Country Living Fair in Islington.

Whilst standing in the Q to get in, I realised we were standing in front of Victoria Wood and she looked fabulous.

The Fair was really good, made even better by the fact that it was reasonably quiet for the first hour and you could get a good look at everything without all the josling about.

I have bought some lovely bits and pieces, mostly Christmas prezzies which I can't reveal on the blog.
Emma Bridgewater's husband, the gorgeous Mathew Rice, was there and personalised my advent calender envelope with a pretty watercolour of Wendy.

After about 3 hours, we called it a day because it was just too busy. After a nice lunch, we dropped in on the newly renovated St.Pancras station. The renovated ironwork is beautiful and the bronze sculpture of the couple in the entrance is magnificent.

Caught the 3pm train North, picked up at the station by Julie's husband and home by 6:15pm.

A really hectic but fun couple of days, think I'll do it again in March !!!!

This is a bit random but do you pay to get into the country living fair. My husband is English but has been here for 25 years and said to me the other day when I went to a similar thing and paid to get in "In england we never paid entry to things" He has been caught in a time warp thought.
