Hi Ros, so glad you got home safely and enjoyed your visit, knew Craig would love his time in London.
Got your messages, will talk to you later this week, hope you have today, Friday, off - sure you will need the rest lol
I was so disappointed not to meet up with you but just couldn't have done it, been exhausted this week and daren't risk being unwell.
Catch you later,

Tiring -feet still sore . Craig just loves London . He got his Dr. Who figures after searching Hamley`s, Harrods , Dr.WHO exhibition , got them at BBC shop on tour -he was so pleased. He loves the Underground , Glasgow`s isn`t a patch on London`s.. He knew all the stations when he was about 3

Travelodge , Farringdon --okay , a bit basic , room very hot and when we opened the window it was noisy but it says that on website, about 15-20 mins walk from Farringdon underground , 10 minutes walk from bus stop to take you into centre of London -used both.
