I've been to London to visit the Queen!

Pussycat, pussycat, where have you been?
I've been to London to visit the Queen.
Pussycat, pussycat, what did you there?
I frightened a little mouse under her chair.

Ok despite the flag flying outside the palace our tour guide told us that while the palace was open to the public Her Majesty was actually in Balmoral. Also I guess I didnt really visit the Queen I just viewed the outside of her palace. I have just come back from a days visit to London. Me, hubby and his mum did the Yellow Bus tour around many of the sights in London. It was the first time in my 45 years that I have done the tourist thing in London and I thoroughly enjoyed it. We eventually got off at Trafalgar Square. We just sat for a little while and enjoyed the atmosphere before walking through Admiral Arch up the Mall to Buckingham Palace. I was amazed at how close everywhere was to each other.

Ok we didnt just go to London for a day we were also at a wedding the day before. Alison is a relative of my hubby and his mum, and I was delighted to make her tiara for her wedding day.
The wedding was held at Goodwood Race Course near Chichester and for a day I felt like a VIP. The bride was stunning. The venue was amazing. After the ceremony we went outside for photographs and while we stood drinking Pimms and eating canap├ęs we were entertained with a flying display by a single aircraft.
