We’ve been doing some exciting things lately. We went into Cambridge to do some shopping and see the sights, then into London for some touristy things.
These are two colleges in Cambridge. Very impressive.
Lollies (well, “sweets”) galore. The guy in the top right is making fudge.
So Heffers is this great book shop unique to Cambridge (and it was cheaper than Waterstone’s!). It was 3 for the price of 2, so I got these ones. All the Bright Places was just…amazing.
So here we’ve got some pics of Big Ben and the London Eye and Westminster Abbey. It was a pretty gloomy day, but we rugged up.
This was at Trafalgar Square. You can see my sisters trying to clamber up onto the lion. Also – a Candy Crush bus!
This is outside Buckingham Palace. It was very exciting. This motorbike ZOOMED into the middle and halted the traffic, and this cavalcade went past from the Palace. Who knows? The Queen might have been coming past!
Top left: The Australia Gate of the Buckingham Palace. We’re famous!
Top right: the Palace itself. Unfortunately we didn’t get to see the Changing of the Guard. Plus, the guard we DID see kept yawning.
Bottom: fancy schmancy gates. I need some of them for my house.
So CHANGES are coming to the blog. Change isn’t always good, but this time I’m hoping it will be. If you stalk my Twitter you may have an inkling of what those changes may be, but for now I’ll be a bit sneaky about it.
Let me just give you three clues.
1) It will involve a giveaway and a blog hop.
2) It’s been one of my goals ever since I got a blog
3) It’s caused me no end of frustration. BUT THAT’S OKAY. It’s working quite well now.
That was probably way too easy…
But anyway, this will all be happening once I get back to Australia in about two weeks, so get excited!
