Special Birthday Treat!

After my disastrous birthday in February, I finally celebrated my 50th in true style with my daughter on Saturday.  Fay took me to see the amazing 'Les Miserables' musical at Queen's Theatre in London, followed by an impromptu 'point 'n shoot' walk to take in the local tourist sights ... we had such a fun day together!

Arriving at Queen's Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue

The show was absolutely everything a West End musical should be ... classy, seamless and completely engrossing.  Geronimo Raunch singing 'Bring him home' was so moving, it gave me goosebumps!  I sat absolutely spellbound for three solid hours.

I hope you will enjoy some of the landmark sights with us through these snaps, taken as we strolled together in the glorious June sunshine.  If you haven't yet been to London and ever have the opportunity to do so, please come visit! London is such an exciting, hustling, bustling, colourful city.

I loved sharing my special birthday in London with Fay, it was a wonderful treat and one I will always remember.  

Thank you daughter, 
with my love always,
