I've had a lovely day today! First of all we went to visit DH's Brother near Tonbridge (on the motorbike!) and had coffee and chat with him, and admired his new pond!

Then we rode into London, which took ages, very very busy, even on the bike! Dreadful road from the top of the M23 all through Purley and Croydon. We went to the Italian procession in Clerkenwell. The Anglo-Italian Family History Society have a stall there every year, and the procession is run by the Italian Church in Clerkenwell, of which we are transcribing the records. A lot of Italians settled in Clerkenwell in the late 1800s and early 1900s. There are birth marriage and death records all to be transcribed.

There were loads of stalls selling all things Italian, the sun shone, and it was really warm. We watched the Italian procession, which was very religious - I guess like the carnivals and festivals they have in Italy and Spain. It was great! I took LOADS of photos, and can't wait to scrap them!

I have realised how behind I am with harry Potter as the last book in the series has been published this weekend. I have still got book no 5 not read! I am a bit inspired to read it now though. And we are off to Center Parcs for the weekend, so I'll probably take it with me. Wondering about sneaking a bit of scrapbooking with me too! I must do a minibook for the girls from volleyball at sandbanks last weekend.
