2014 Week 35 Day 2

2014 Week 35 Day 2 – Today I had the pleasure of my two middle children¬†accompanying me on a day trip to London. The eldest surprisingly was not interested in going to the Horrible Histories show, so I took Alexei and Felix instead. We even had a bit of time to look around Trafalgar Square […]
