Last day in London.

On with sightseeing. After the wonderful family Skype reunion we headed to Tower bridge and the Tower of London as this was missing from our sightseeing list. Somehow we missed our stop and got off at the wrong station. We emerged from the station and papa said we will just walk over the bridge to the Tower. I recognised the building of MI6 from the movie Skyfall and said let's go in here. I convinced papa to come along. At the steps of the building a man came running up and we entered the building with him. I went into the elevator with him and papa followed reluctantly. He looked very important and debonair at the same time. New here are you? he said to papa. Yeah I said as papa had gone all silent. We exited the lift and followed the man through to a 6th floor door where a lady greeted him.

Hello 007, M is waiting for you, who are your guests? The man replied, thank you Moneypenny but they are not my guests. Please wait here said Miss Moneypenny as you must be the Russian delegation. I was wearing a Russian fur hat which must have given her the impression I was Russian. You must be Colonel Kleb said Ms Moneypenny. This was our queue to leave and as quick as we got in, we got out.

Well this encounter made us so hungry so we went on to Papa's old place of work. Bibendum at 81 Fulham Road the old Michelin building. What a wonderful reception papa got there, two guys came up to greet him as if he'd never been gone. Then we were taken into the kitchen to meet Matthew the chef and papa told me how he knew him and his brother. 20 years is a long time but for these guys nothing had changed. There was a strange look in there eyes as they realised it had been 20 years. They were still were papa had left them.

Next we went to the hotel to collect our luggage, then an awkward hurried journey to Heathrow.
At the gate going to the plane papa told me we were behind a guy called Jason Donovan. He posed with me in Rotterdam anyway to prove to all you unbelievers that it's all true.

Hi Dawn nice blog, really lovely to hear how well everything is going. FYI I went to a few parties with Jason Donovan 20 years ago!

Did jason donovan ask after me? For a long time, many years ago, he was my boyfriend (well, in my mind anyway....) xo
