Today was planned as ‘Museum Day’. We set off from our digs and made the short journey to South Kensington.

We looked at a few bits and bobs on our way downstairs with every intention to shift across to the Natural History Museum and after our afternoon snack head to the Science Museum but Harley’s sniffles took on the teeth of a proper cold. He took the decision that he wanted to head back to our hotel to “chill out”. We didn’t mind a bit, it has after all been a busy week with so many ‘firsts’. Well, next time.....................
