2005-05-28-trip_to_london

In 2005 me and Lorna took Zia out for a trip to London to see the sights and take in a show. It was the first time the girls had stayed in a "posh" hotel and they didn't have a clue how to do breakfast or much else. Never-the-less we all had a very good time and were blessed with warm sunny weather. Although it's not what I said after carrying the bags half way across London.
