Like the wonderful mummy she is, Momma P treated me to a jaunt to London. I capitalised (see what I did there?…) and popped down a few days early and managed to fit in seeing some of my very favourite people (shout out to Ashley and Jack; Katie, Hannah, Rach and Kimmelman; Jack and Wes; and finally Pidg), as well as cramming in some shopping (silk shirts from Uniqlo, anyone?), lots of walking (more than 20 miles in 3 days. No exaggeration!), and lots of yummy food.
Once Momma P arrived 48 hours later, we geeked out and ‘did’ the new Ancient Egypt, mummy exhibition at the British Museum – fascinating, really well curated and presented – a definite thumbs up from us; followed immediately by the Wedding Dress exhibition at the V&A – also brilliantly curated with the highlight for me being Kate Moss’ incredible Galliano gown.
Then, with two pairs of very very tired feet, we caught the train back to York. Here’s until next time!
