Shopping trip

Another quick break in London for the girls earlier this week. These seem to be happening on a regular basis now, I quite like it. The real reason we went was for Adrienne and her friend Brodie to go to a concert at the HMV forum (which used to be the Town and Country Club in my day). An obscure American band called Switchfoot were playing. Adrienne's favourite band, and she insisted on going. I didn't think letting 16 and 17 year old girls travel round London on thier own was a terribly good idea so I went too. Not to the concert of course!

I left them at the venue and me, Caitlin and Ellie went into the West End to see 'Sister Act'. When we got there we found our seats had been upgraded, which was nice. We were in the Royal Circle instead of the Upper Circle, so a much better view. It was a good show, but not as good as 'Wicked'. We arrived back in Kentish Town just as the concert finished so that worked out brillantly. We all walked back to the B&B together. B&B was a bit of a dive but the less said about that the better.
The following day was when we did our shopping. We all went into Oxford Street. Adrienne and Brodie went off and I took the others. We found the big Primark and they bought a few things. Then I bought myself a few dresses in a shop called Uniqlo. I like that shop, reasonable prices and clothes that no one else in Barnstaple will have. Our last stop was Hamleys where I managed to restrict them to only two floors and a price range of £10.
We had a late lunch (Subway) in Trafalgar Square then it was time to come home.
