I want to live in Camden Town!

Hi everyone, I'm back!!

Stu took me to London for the weekend as part of my birthday present.

And while we were there we went to see Wicked, it was brilliant. I had goosebumps! The singing, the dancing - everything was soooo well done it was amazing :)

For my actual birthday (Saturday) we went to Camden Market and had a stroll round looking at all the stalls. I loved it there, the atmosphere was so relaxed and laid back (baring in mind we got there about 9am so it wasn't that busy!)

We then made our way to Leicester Square and bought our tickets to see Inception. Has anyone ever been to that cinema ?? The seats are the most comfortable seats I've ever sat on in a cinema! I almost fell asleep... not because of the film though - that was soooo good.
It must be my age lol.

After we went back to the hotel to freshen up, Stu treated me to dinner in a gorgeous little Chinese restaurant in China Town then we went to Ripley's Believe it or Not! (We've been to the one in New York and Florida too) so it's kind of a tradition now.

On the Sunday, before we had to catch our train back, we went shopping in Canary Wharf where I had the most delicious Bailey's hot chocolate! Yum :)

I couldn't believe it only took us 2 hours to get home, I tracked our progress (because I'm a bit of a geek like that lol) with the GPS app on my iPhone. It was a little freaky to see the little blue dot zoom across the country like that.

Sorry to bore you with all that! I'll be back soon with some crafty photos.

Thanks for stopping by,
take care.
