Sorry I didn't post last night. I'm sure mum and Mary are wondering what happened to us. I was just so tired, I couldn't be bothered to type.
We made it to London after a LONG journey from Wales. We had to get off of our train early because of electrical problems so the journey ended up taking an extra 2 hrs. It literally took us 8 hours to get from Laurie's to our hotel. And we didn't eat anything all day, we were all dying. They didn't really have food on the train we were switched too so we couldn't buy anything.
We are staying in Kensington. It's a really cute, nice neighbourhood. The hotel is a 5 min walk from Gloucester station and there's a Starbucks here too . Last night, Candice, Les and I went for a walk around the neighbourhood and scooped out restaurants. We ended up eating at a cute restaurant, all eating pasta. Laur stayed in since she wasn't feeling well. I forgot how much I love pasta! I'm going to be sad when I have to give carbs up in a week again. Then we got lattes from Starbucks and walked up to the national gallery which has an outdoor ice skating ink. It was actually cooler then I thought it would be here last night. Dry at least but cool. I finally wore my winter jacket and uggs!!
Today we are off to explore the city. Only have today and tomorrow since we all leave fairly early in Sunday. I would have been nice to have more time in London....stupid British trains!
As the British would say.... Cheerio!
