As 2018 draws to a close this is possibly Mr Mc’s and my last ‘jaunt’ of the year.
This week we headed to London to meet up with our daughter (Fiona) and to spend to spend a few quality hours with both our daughter and soon to be son-in-law.
From the station we headed to The ‘Richmond Theatre‘ to watch ‘Peter Pan‘ . This was yet another proud parent moment as Fiona is the Wardrobe Mistress for this production and the cast is headed by the very talented Robert Lindsay and ably supported by a very strong cast and talented dancers. If you are in the area there is still time to watch this fabulous pantomime, click this link for ticket availability
The next day we spent as a family at Hyde Park – Winter Wonderland .
It has been many years since myself and Mr Mc and although I quite enjoyed my thrill of riding the ‘Wild Mouse’ after negotiating the hurdles to get on the ride
I can’t say the same for Mr Mc who ventured onto the ‘Waltzers’. As the ride progressed I swear i watched him turn so many shades of green before the ride ended.
He is a braver man than I
After our stomachs had settled from the excitement we headed to the ‘Bavarian’ quarter.
Bratwurst all round was the order of the day
Followed with a warming hot chocolate and ‘Bailey’s’ – delicious!
Entertainment was provided by a ‘ Oompah Band’
and Mr Mc made friends with the locals.
while Fiona and I made friends with a larger than life-sized mouse.
The next day saw us returning home to Manchester after another fabulous visit to London. Where will our next jaunt be ??? as yet we have no plans but if 2019 is as good a year as 2018 has been we will be making many more memories. What are your plans for 2019? I would love to hear from you.
