Lovely Weekend

This weekend our friends Sarah, Roel and Milly visited from Holland. We had a lovely time! I have so many photos that I have done mosaics-they are shameslessly mainly of Milly who is so sweet and loves to have a photo! At home and then on the way to Butler's Wharf for lunch.
Milly looking at the view, the view she was looking at, tower bridge in the distance, Milly and HMS Belfast

Let's go! Milly is such a keen tourist, so interested in everything!
On the way to the Gherkin-I am not sure what it is really called-that's bad isn't it but anyway! We were looking for the shop that sells cake glitter-it is at the bottom of the building-Konditor and Cook. It was shut-Sunday you see-but at least we saw the cake of the building and some glittery cakes.
Milly had a look at the map for us so we could find Liverpool Street Station-then she's off!
We got the DLR to Greenwich and had a quick drink at The Trafalgar pub on the river. Later on Milly helped me feed Lily. She is really good with cats-so gentle and quiet. The picture of the cats is for you Milly if you are looking!
We had such a lovely time and are looking forward to New Year in Holland!

This is one of the best posts ever.
Milly is quite the tourist and I see a viable future for her as an ambassador or even as a guide --
Looks like a wonderful weekend for everyone and I do so appreciate your sharing this with us.

Take good care!

Lovely post - and I'm so envious of your mosaic - I can't even get Typepad to put two photos side-by-side!!

That piccy of the cats is stupendous!

Milly is a little doll! Looks like you had a wonderful time. (Milly looks like her daddy.)

Nice to see a bit more of your home, too.

Sounds as though you had a wonderful weekend. Great seeing all your photos, and Milly is so sweet.
Lovely to have the New Year to look forward to.

How fun! the baby of course is the tops and it makes me feel like baby fever :) Having one around always makes the clouds go away faster, clouds of any kind that is. She is a doll and so are you.
