Here is the reason we went down to London
But we made the most of our time away
with my first trip to the V&A
to see a few pieces of ceramics
Just a few pieces
and of course the textiles,
I love this mini dress.
We saw the ballgown exhibition as well but weren't
allowed to take photos.
They have a new exhibition opening soon
with hollywood costumes which my daughter and I
are planning to see at some time.
Sunday was a day just wandering around Central London
and I had to look twice when I saw this on the outside of
We then went onto Green park to see the new memorial
to WW2 Bomber Command.
My Father was on Bombers and I really wanted to see this.
It really is impressive which I sort of expected having seen
news coverage of the memorial
But what I hadn't expected
was the photos,stories and poppy crosses piled under
and around the figures and the effect these would have on me.
Knowing it was only an appendicitis that saved my Father
from being shot down with the rest of his crew
I was very moved by these personal memorials.
Thank you to everyone for your comments
I am feeling much better now
which is lucky as I'm going on holiday
to Italy on Friday so I'll see you all when I get back.
