I’ve got lots to say about the rather fabulous event Josie and I attended today at the House of Lords but I’m just too tired and caught up in other things tonight. So here are some pictures of a very special day I spent with my smallest girl, who rarely gets me all to herself and made the absolute most of it today. She was delightful company.
We stood on the bridge, reminiscing about Doctor Who episodes with new broadcasts filmed from the very spot 😉 and looked down the river at the water steps and picked out a place I thought I knew from a film. Later we discovered our day was to be hosted in that exact room.
We made time for some history… not just the Civil War but also wondering whether our most wonderful building are still standing because men who had no wish to be bombers in the 2nd world war chose to miss them.
Not only did we get a tour around the House of Lords and stand in a 900 year old hall and see 700 year old angels, we also got to stand on top of the very spot where Guy Fawkes put his gunpowder. This pleased a small girl who can always ‘Remember, Remember’ her birthday 🙂 And we walked on the very steps where he was sentenced and dragged away to be hanged.
Later on, when we had done the main business of the day, we took ourselves off to Baker Street and visited a very important door.
I think that – and the walk round Regent’s Park – finally topped off an amazing day for her.
I will always remember today Josie. It was one of our best ever.
