What My Customers Say

Monday, 8 June 2015


With two weeks Half Term, the second week we set off for London.  I always love a city fix, albeit with children quite a different experience!  Before we left I managed to get a couple of new things finished including some new "swishy skirts" and some new customised sweatshirts, and a new range of PVC Book Bags.

On the Sunday before we left we had a quick trip into Exeter and visited the Museum for coffee and cake, where Bella took this photo (a modern day family portrait!)

On to London and all its glory!

The Royal Albert Hall

The Natural History Museum

No trip to London with a 6 year old is complete without a visit to Hamleys.

A little stroll along Carnaby Street looking for a suitable pub.

Finished off by a good burger and chips at Ed's Diner Soho

Day 2 of the trip began with walk from St Paul's and over the Jubilee Bridge to The Tate Modern

The Tate Modern - A fantastic place to hang out and admire all the weird and wonderful things it beholds.  The girls are still a little too young to appreciate it quite as much as we did.

Our next stop was to see The Lion King at the Lyceum Theatre and much to my surprise it was a truly amazing show. Definitely one of my all time favourites.

On to Covent Garden and ballet mad Bella had to have her photo take outside the Royal Ballet under the bridge of Inspiration which links the Royal Ballet with the Royal Opera House

Bella far more serious about it all.

We returned from London to find our little seaside town turned over to a Hollywood film set. Colin Firth and Rachel Weiss were here to film the start of a film about Donald Brocklehurst, a man who set sail around the world from Teignmouth (and to cut a long story short) his boat was found but not him! 

Down on the beach watching some of the filming going on.

Summer is not too far away (I keep telling myself) as we were able to have our first Sunday paella in the garden

And then it was back to school for the last 6 weeks of this school year, and our first trip home over on the ferry - probably one of the most "stress free" school runs anyone could ever have, even when you have just missed it!

Mabel: This was your first West End Show.
