How is it the end of April already?
Last time I wrote a post was at the start of 2018, I hadn’t even got half of my dissertation written but now its all handed in after blood,sweat and tears…maybe not blood. I’m at the end of my final year at university with only 2 assignments left to go and then I will finally done. However, I got a break from the long days of continuously staring at my laptop screen because myself and Tom went on a trip to London. It was Toms birthday in March and I decided to get us tickets to see Aladdin in theatre, let me tell you, it was AMAZING! It’s up there with the Lion King for sure, definitely recommend.
Our day started by going to the Natural History museum which I had never been to before. I was very excited for the dinosaur exhibit… and of course the blue whale skeleton!
We then both got back onto the tube and made our way to Soho where all the theatres are but most importantly this MOST amazing doughnut shop you will ever visit (this was the most exciting part of the day for me).
I got the Notorious P.I.G (percy the pig, mine melted so I didn’t takea photo) and Tom got the Stranger Rings 2.0 (obviously it would be chocolate).
As we all know it was one of the hottest days of the year and as you will see in the photo below I decided to wear a long sleeved mostly dark colored top and black leggings… what was I thinking?!?!
So after the doughnut trip I went to TK Maxx to buy myself an alternative top and thankfully succeeded in buying a top to suit the summer weather.
Yay to not sweating!
We then went to do a bit more browsing around the shops and then went to Pizza Express for an early dinner before the theatre. We shared a bottle of white wine and dinned ourselves with dough balls and a pizza each. I also want to add this even if it is super soppy and cringe, but this trip was also to celebrate mine and Toms relationship of 2 years so decided to splash out a bit (though I did have vouchers from Tesco club card rewards!)
We then made our way to the Prince Edward theatre and waited for the show to begin.
Sorry about the photo quality it was my on my phone!
The show had ended, we were over whelmed with how spectacular it was. We were both getting very tired as we had been in London by 10am and by this time is was 10:30pm… way past my bedtime HA! So we made our way to the tube and realized we might be late for our train back to Cambridge. So for the first time in my life we sprinted off the tube at our stop running up about 3 sets of steep escalators to get to Kings Cross station… however we missed the train by 1 minute. We must have looked like such tourists… or nutters. We got the next train which was only a 30 minute wait. We arrived back home at around midnight and conked out straight away.
All in all it was a very good day and would definitely do it more often, you know its only about my 3rd proper day in London!
Have any of you been to London recently, what do you normally get up to and do you recommend any other shows to watch?
