This week is busy for birthdays in my family. Between the 22 and 28 January we have 6 birthdays including me, my brother, both of my sons and 2 grandchildren. Fairly expensive so close to Christmas! My birthday was a little low key last Monday - working all day, some lovely pressies, and a great meal out at the Wig and Pen. Yesterday was Dan's birthday, and his present was a trip to London. Of course, it was a great day out for me, as I had to go with him....
So, started with a train journey to London - first class of course, and if you buy an advance ticket, it costs about 25quid! Then a quick dash across London to Olympia for the Dr Who experience. Fab couple of hours. A 30 minute "experience" which involved rescuing the Doctor, being exterminated by Daleks, fighting Cybermen in 3D, and driving the Tardis. Then a great exhibition including the costumes of all the Doctors, monsters, companions, sets, props, costumes, sound effects and special effects.
There's lots more pictures of the day here.
