A visit to London in the rain

In the morning, a bit earlier than our booked time slot, our shopping was delivered. Quite easy and well worthwhile. I put a meal in the crockpot, chicken breasts, onions, potatos and capsicums.

We had a very wet day for our trip to London and kept waiting for it to ease off before setting out. It would ease off briefly, then rain heavily again, no point waiting. Only the fact that Stephen needed to pick up his pouch from Eurail Lost and Found motivated us to go. It’s expensive travelling to London from here, even with the two-together discount. About AUD32.

After locating Lost and Found, Stephen was able to get his pouch back with our Eurail ticket diary and his passports. Although it was found yesterday it was still a relief when he actually had it in his hands.

We went to St Pauls Cathedral nearby, couldn’t bring ourselves to pay aabout fourteen pounds each for entry. A few years ago we went to a service at Westminster Abbey rather than pay the steep entry price and have decided to go back for a service. They have a Choral Evensong at 6.00 p.m. each weekday. We thought of staying in town for it and walked over to the Tate Gallery for coffee and toilets. Stephen was feeling a little unwell and the gallery was very busy and it just didn’t feel like somewhere to stay for a couple of hours.

The warmest part of the day is usually around 4.00 p.m., so with the rain it felt a bit steamy on the journey home.

Despite the online shopping there are still many items needed – some shopping may take place today. I’ve done some washing and ironed some of my tops which were looking a bit crushed from being hand washed.
