After we stayed with Miles and Kris (thank you again and again and again), we moved into a cute little cottage of our own.
One of the days I took a bus into the city of Banbury for the morning and watched the little boats go up and down the canal.
Then I took a train up to a little place of heavenly shopping at Stratford-Upon-Avon. I also visited a friend of mine.
This is his home. Do you know him?
My friend Kris took me in to London that Friday and we went saw this
I didn't know what to expect but it is huge. It's also attached to Parliament, didn't know that either, and it's enormous!
The biggest mall ever, complete with a memorial for Princess Diana.
Then Matt and I went back to London on Saturday.
This is the back of Parliament, it just keeps going.
This was pretty much what we saw of the changing of the guard. It was more frustrating than anything else. I still don't know what the heck changing of the guards looks like. Everyone just shoves and pushes and I was quite done with it so we just left.
Tower of London, which is really the London Castle
