Seren and I had such a lovely adventure on Saturday. We went into London to watch The Tiger Who Came To Tea at Cadogan Hall and followed that up with a lot of meandering. We went to the V&A, Science Museum then wandered up to Hyde Park but found Kensington Gardens next door instead.
She had been keen to see the dinosaurs at the Natural History Museum but – hello, Saturday afternoon in August – the queues were at least the length of a T-Rex or two. It’s funny, she hasn’t seemed that interested in dinosaurs before but yesterday she was and I got out of it by promising we would come back when it’s less busy.
We got very lost in Kensington Gardens, we were heading for the Diana Memorial Fountain in Hyde Park but ended up at the temporary outdoor exhibits by the Serpentine Gallery.
Via running up and down hills, losing and finding the crystal gem balls we had bought at the Science Museum and climbing on tree stumps.
I had a job to convince her that we should go home – we didn’t arrive back until 7pm, about 3 hours later than I’d intended. Before children, I would spend many a weekend afternoon wandering in London and it felt pretty cool to be doing that again with my little sidekick.
I’ll write more about our theatre, V&A and Science Museum visits soon (short version – all were good and worth seeing / doing!).
