LOOKING FOR INSPIRATION

So, on June 29th, I will be in London with my 21 year old daughter.
Our reason for being there?
We are going to see ‘P!nk’ at Wembley and I’m really looking forward to it.

I found out today that Vance Joy is going to be a supporting act! Bonus!

Anyway, when we originally booked the tickets for the show, we decided to make a 3 day trip of it.
We head into London on the Friday, see the show on the Saturday and head home on the Sunday.
As we sat discussing the trip for a bit today, we both decided that we want to do things in London that we wouldn’t ordinarily do.
We’re fed up with the ‘usual’ attractions like the museums, the London Eye, river trips, bus trips.
We want something different.

So far we’ve decided that we want to try Dans Le Noir on the Friday evening.
It’s probably the only time I’ll get to try it, as ‘gourmet’ food is not something my husband is into and not being able to see or know what he’s eating does not appeal to him in the slightest.

We spent a little time looking at all the hidden little ‘speakeasy’ type bars that are hidden all over London and will probably check out a few.

However, we are really stuck for anything off the tourist track!
We want fun, music, entertainment, venues that are not worried about casual wear, off the beaten track, hidden little gems (not necessarily family friendly!!)

So if anyone reading this has any ideas, let me know!!
5 months and counting!!

DECISION MADE

So we made a decision today.

We’ve had tickets for the Royal Albert Hall for a while now. On Saturday we will be seeing Space Spectacular with lots of space themed classical music and fireworks with much of the music being from John Williams!! Can’t wait.

As my car, thankfully, passed it’s MOT today we decided to splurge and stay in London on Saturday evening. It will be our only chance to get away as a couple now until the end of my University studies in 2019.
With no pressure to get home, we can make an early start and enjoy the day and possibly part of Sunday too. Depends on how my knee is and how Ian’s arthritis is after Saturday around London.

We have made the decision to visit Borough Market on Saturday and support the businesses that were affected by the terrorist attacks just a few weeks ago.
Show solidarity.
Show that nothing can keep us down.
Life continues despite what those assholes think.

I’d love to go to the Picturehouse Central again and try and get a love seat.
After Paterson, and our unexpected love seat, I fell in love with the place. It just seems a bit silly going all the way to London to spend a couple of hours hidden away watching a film!!
It is a beautiful cinema though and after a long day walking around London, it could be a good idea.

Looks like the weather is going to be scorching.
It’s going to be a good weekend.
