Trip To the UK

In July we travelled to the UK for 6 weeks. We had an awesome time visitng family and doing all the 'tourist' things. We spent one week in Hastings, a long weekend in Dublin, 3 weeks in Torquay then back to Hastings for 10 days. The first week we travelled to London and went to The Doctor Who Experience at Olympia. My daughter and I are big Dr Who fans and really enjoyed ourselves. We were hoping to see Much Ado About Nothing with Davis Tennant and Catherine Tate, but they were fully booked.

Dublin was wonderful and we stayed with my cousin and family. In Torquay we spent some quiet time with my mum and brother. We managed to visit Plymouth, Totnes and went on the boat to Brixham. Back in Hastings lots of hectic family gatherings and a visit to London to The National Gallery and Tate Modern. It was the week of the riots and the train to london was very quiet. london was business as usual.

My cousins wife has a, Etsy shop and I helped her to tweak listings etc. I'm hoping she can get some sales. While there she knitted me some gorgeous wrist warmers a new edition to her shop.
