Go, go, go Jo

Well we’re off again. I was ready last night, all packed etc. but Maria and John kept faffing about, making lists and so on. Maria has planned an itinerary for the whole trip, We’ll be lucky if we have time to stop and breathe.

However today was pretty easy, pack the car and leave about midday, heading for London. We popped in on John’s parents on the way, we owed Maureen a birthday prezzie from way back in early July, this seemed a good opportunity to drop it off. And then off to London, we’re staying there overnight because we have tickets for Joseph (we watched all the TV shows).  With John travelling so much, he collects hotel reward points and we’re staying at the Crowne Plaza on Buckingham Palace Road, just down from Buck House, very nice it is too.

We arrived mid afternoon rather peckish and so had afternoon tea in the courtyard, good job the weather has improved. That should keep us going until after the show.

Afternoon tea

We have a long journey ahead of us tomorrow, the aim us to end up in Frankfurt tomorrow night. Hope Maria knows lots of games to play on car journeys, otherwise I’ll get rather bored.

Ps. Isn’t it a small world. Last week Claire, Maria and I bought an Indian takeaway from Waitrose (John was in America). It was a rather special southern Indian meal, based on food from a London restaurant called Quilan, It was lovely and we all wondered where in London the restaurant was. Well now we know, it’s at this hotel!!!

Pps. Joseph was FANTASTIC!!!!
