Westminster Abbey

I slept in today and it was glorious. Then I went to Victoria to window shop and ended up in the dressing rooms… who was I kidding? THEN I paid to tour Westminster Abbey by myself, and it was one of the best experiences I’ve […]

Harrods & Yorkshire pudding

Today was mostly a blah day, because I slept until noon then ended up not doing my paper, which is due tomorrow night. Ugh. At 4pm I met Melissa at Harrods and we went shopping! It was a mad dash through the Children’s Toy and […]

Wath & Leeds

Okay so, I didn’t even have 5 minutes yesterday to update! Which means things are going well but I can’t keep up with my day-to-day entry style like I want. But I have access now so I’ll try to keep it short and sweet (unlikely).

Conisbrough & Wath

Today, Dad got really really sick so Mother and I took a trip to Wath to see the family history. Went to Conisbrough Castle, which was just a defense fortress, really. But I always love castles and their ancient-ness. They make me feel very young.
