Busy weekend!

Nicholas and I went up to London for the day on Saturday for the Anglo-Italian Family History Society AGM. I am the membership secretary, Nicholas is the webmaster. Here's a view out of the train window at East Croydon. It feels like you are approaching London once you get here. Up until then we travel through mostly green fields!





Our meeting was at the Mormon church near the museums, so we went into the science museum to get a friend's son a birthday present.





















Then the V&A for lunch! We sat in the courtyard - it was gloriuos and we could have been anywhere in the world! Look at these lemons!!!


































Here's the venue for the AGM. Unfortunately it was very poorly attended, only 7 of us!!!














And then we had to just nip into the Natural History museum and see the earth thingy! It's looking a bit tatty now. And it looks small! We remember this escalator as being really big!!! Must be about 10 years since we went there before!!! Then we stood on the mock up of the Kobe earthquake. Pathetic!!!






















And finally at Victoria for our train home.
















Sunday morning we went to church - to Nicholas's church because it was reopening after being refurbished inside. A lovely new limestone floor, removal of pews, a general freshen up and gorgeous new chairs. After the service they moved the chairs aside and prepared tables for a ploughman's lunch.
















This banner has been made for the church recently, and it is much more gorgeous than you can see in this picture!




















Mum came with us to church, then back home for a roast dinner, then for a little drive to practice my advanced driving. We then went to DB and SILs house for a cuppa and to see their new extension in the middle of being built.








Took Mum home and decided to take a pic of her kitchen before all her stuff goes back. Doesn't it look fab!












Our evening walk along the beach. Nicholas comandeered the camera, so here's some of me! On the beach, walking back from the beach, and checking the car over with Maurice in preparation for my next driving lesson on Monday.







































Yet another busy weekend!
