A Day Up London: Q & A

Now most of you will think I have made a big, fat typo with my title. Not so, friends. That is how British people refer to 'going into London for the day'. It's not "A Day Up In London" - no, you just go "up London."


We went to London on Saturday, spent the day in town, and then went for a sleepover at my Nanny's and a pub lunch the next day with some family. It was such a nice, relaxed couple of days. And now begins the Q & A, in pictorial form.

Q: What do you do when you're 'Up London' and the weather is crummy?
A:  The same thing you would do if the weather was good: run after pigeons, have a picnic in a random garden (in this case, the Embankment Gardens), and eat huge dessert-pastry things.

Q: What do you do when your toddler looks like this:
A: Isn't that obvious??

Q: What do you do when your toddler starts to look like this:
A: Isn't that obvious as well? First you do this:
and then this:
and then you look like Mum of the Year:

Q: What is the best thing on the menu at the Birchwood Pub, Abbey Wood?
A: Lamb roast, lamb roast, lamb roast. But this is the real reason we go there:

Q: What is the most compelling advertisement you saw this weekend?
A: That would have to be this:
For your information, they won the Asian Curry Award in 2011. Ahem:

Q: Okay, that is pretty compelling. Are you sure that is the best ad you saw this weekend?
A: Alright, alright, you got me. This next one made me laugh out loud - because there is such a high percentage of commuters going into Waterloo East station that are dying to share their physics expertise across the country. Matthew read the whole sign, no jokes.  One in a million folks, one in a million.
