not recently? must be me then ^_^
ok it was super special day time; for those of you not familiar with my special days please go here to find out more so here we have a super most special weekend because my oldest daughter reached 18 woot and woohoo for 18 birthdays and so a super special day was called for and we chose London and we had the most super excellent time,
the hotel coach and everything like meals was already paid for i had paid for it back in summer and all we had to do was save up some money it took us 8 and half hours to get there
due to some of the roads being closed and it did also teach me to next time actually check the details of the holiday i have booked because i had no idea it was all organised into trips and the hotel was quite far out etc so from the minute we boarded the coach they had a itinary for us to follow because of the roads being closed their plans for our first day were thwarted, to be honest though they would have been anyway; as soon as we got to hotel we had our evening meal and went to our room and i promptly feel asleep until the next day ^_^
the hotel was the brittania international on canary wharf and was four star but to be honest yes it looked grand but really its staff were rude unhelpful and often ignorant i found it very difficult to enjoy this holiday it did not cater for the disabled person yes it had lifts but no one to help me with my suitcase or to help with my room key which they managed to get all wrong, the food was awful i do not understand why they spent so much on decor then bought the cheapest food they could it tasted foul, and worse still they did not help me to get any food which after laying the whol;e meal out as a buffet was terrible i had my crutches at this point and could not carry anything and they did not offer to help, when i was forced to ask for help they just said the food, here you eat, seriously how was i supposed to carry it?
the saturday morning the national holidays company who like i said ran our whole holiday were rather good though the driver of our coach was jolly and tried his best to cope with our crap road system ^_^ and seriously anyone who takes on driving a coach through London gets my respect, but also they had us organised the whole time doing stuff and they took us to convent garden and here we found the delightful little cafe shown above if you get chance pop in there they do the nicest hot choclate ever.
covent garden was fabulous shopping heaven we loved the market it had loads of stalls with just gorgeous things on them and we didn’t manage to go anywhere else somehow the day whooshed by and before we knew it the coach had took us back to hotel because it was tea time !
of the two markets i preferred the smaller jubilee market that was fab the bigger one shown above did not get my attention because the minute i stepped into it some woman was singing opera, and now i really can’t cope with any form of opera specially not live and in your face i left as soon as humanly possibly ^_^
i spent what little money i had on the first market i believe but heck it wasn’t about me it was about my gorgeous daughter and she loved every minute ^_^
and before we knew it we were back home again the whole thing had passed by in a blur of shopping and coach trips i would recommend national holidays but i would advise that you check when you pay what type of holiday you are getting, i was in a lot of pain from all the goings and trips and everything if you’re not disabled and young then this is for you we will go again but i will be booking a different hotel and one that is not quite so energetic ^_^ took me nearly a week to get back to normal but that is just the way with what i have, really i would have preferred more days but then London is always like that no matter how long you have its never enough and i used to live there ^_^
have a super day everyone xx
