You know what it's like when you are waiting for a big event.........we'd been in London 3 days and had enjoyed ourselves immensely......this was our 4th day.....the day before the big day.....and although I was having a great a way I wanted to hurry up and get Thursday over with.......Note to self: Live in the Moment LOL!!!

So, Thursday am we wandered over to the Royal Horticultural Halls and Conference Centre to do a reconnoiter of the logistics. Couldn't see anything unusual - big double doors to was only a 5 minute walk from our Hotel (that was why we picked our hotel) and would be easy to get to on Friday morning -- we (er I) wanted to be there early!!!!

Then we spent the day in the area of "The Embankment" by the Thames - Westminster Abbey, walked around the Pariament Buildings. Got this great shot of "the eye" which shows you just how huge it is!Then we did some more yarn shopping at....
.......a lovely little shop about a 10 minute walk from the Angel tube station!

We had our dinner at a little Italian bistro -- freshly made pasta with Parsley picked from the plant on the serving hatch counter -- we saw the chef picking it himself!!!

Then back to the hotel to try and relax for the big day!


  1. I so want to live in your moments right now. It looks all so fabulous!

  2. Hmmmm....guess I missed what the 'Big Day' is so I will have to stay tuned for your next post!

  3. I LOVED Westminster.. been there twice and could go again. Did you see the Canada section of seats?? (with austrillia and south afarica) I love the room with Elizabeth and Mary.. but all the tombs are amazing. Glad you had a great time!

  4. Looks so wonderful!
    I can't believe we were on vacation at exactly the same time.
    No wonder I have been so 'clueless' about chat on Ravelry.
