Wicked

Its weekend ! In fact its a Wicked Bank Holiday weekend ! Which means an extended break for the citizens of Great Britain. So what do you do with such an opportunity ??

For sometime the RJRDaydreamer family have been planning a short trip to the nations capital city London. like lots of people we don't visit our capital very often and the kids are keen to do all the tourist attractions on offer.

We are taking a couple of days to see the sites. Mrs RJR got a good deal on return train tickets for the journey and a cheap bed and breakfast. This may turn out to be a mistake ! Its an en-suite room with 5 beds ! I'm not sure but I imagine the 5 of us being like a scene out of Snow White !

You can expect several pictures next week as we tour places other people have travelled the world to see, but we have never seen ourselves !

Tower of London, Westminster, Buckingham Palace, Museums, the Big Wheel thingy and much more.

We are also going to see the musical Wicked in the West End. Rachel the eldest has seen it before and is getting very excited about seeing it again. Having heard it SEVERAL times, as it gets played around the house, it does sound good.

I will leave you now with the lead singer Rachel Tucker performing GRAVITY. Rachel assures me there are no ice skates in the real show so I don't need to wrap up warm ! This is just happens to be the best quality clip I could find, taken from an episode of Dancing on Ice....
