And so the adventure begins...

i have 2 weeks off work! yay! My friends Dianne is here visiting from the U.S. We met whilst travelling in Japan last year & have kept in touch. i am so happy she is here! We started the weekend off in London. Staying in this beautiful hotel. i have never stayed any where so posh! 4 poster bed. yeeeess!

Saturday we went to Harrods for Bridget, but i couldn't hack the crowds, so we just did what we needed to do and left. Saw big ben, ate lunch on a boat, with a view of the eye.

Hung out in Hyde Park & went on the boats. Food at My Old Dutch, drinks at Cheers (seriously disappointing, the worst wine i've ever tasted and i've sampled a LOT of wine!).

Sunday we had brunch before going to the Notting Hill Carnival. Watched the 2012 Party in St James' Park on the big screen. Then headed home for a night out with the lads. Those boys are guaranteed laughs. Love them.

Today we have been to the arcades (you know how i love those 2p machines!) and took a walk around Old Portsmouth. Dianne is digging all the old stuff that we have in England, she thinks it's 'neat'. We took her to the church with no roof (bombed in WW2) and along the seafront, she was soo happy when we came across a cannon! Yesterday she freaked when we were on the train home and she spotted cows in the field! It's nice to be seeing my home from a different perspective. Happy Days.
