It's Rebecca's birthday and for her birthday she wished for a trip to Legoland. So on a cool and windy summer's day we met up at Legoland which is located just outside of Windsor. I didn't know what to expect except that it would be a whole heap of Lego but I was in awe of just how much they could do with the small coloured bricks. It wasn't a cheap outing but it was worth every penny just to see the Minilands area where they had replicas of many European cities.
The mini-London was so life like and you couldn't help yourself laughing out loud as you recognised all of the places that you have been to and now know so well. The Lego Big Ben was amazing and there was even a Lego Queen watching over the Lego Trouping of the Colours. The little Lego troops marched around in front of Her Royal Legoness and played little instruments. The vehicles in the cities moved around and you could see the underground and overground trains stopping at the stations.

- It is hot weather.
- It is officially summer (or so they tell me).
- There are only 4 weeks left of school.
- I am writing reports.
- I have parent interviews scheduled next week.
And I'm wondering where Santa is. Usually he is around here somewhere.

Unfortunately I had to work last week but managed get blood from the stone and got Friday off to spend with Cleland. In the meantime I did have daylight hours after work to kick about in London so we went on the Sinister London tour which took us through the story of Jack the Ripper. As there was not enough people for our tour we ended up being combined with the Pubs of London (who was I to complain?). In was really fun and low key as the guy who operates it is a sole owner/operator. He did everything - driving, talking, singing, dancing. All throughout the tour he kept saying "Okay my friends" after everything. Reminded me a lot of my tour guide in Pompeii who kept saying "Clicky, clicky" when he wanted us to take photos.
