|Bus Print Dress: Cath Kidston|
Last Wednesday I met some of my Rangers at the train station and we headed to London for a little overnight trip. The girls have spent most of the last term planning this, and I prepared them a Monopoly board with places to visit in central London, with points for visiting, taking photos and answering various questions. What else to wear for sight-seeing than my bus print dress from Cath Kidston?!
Armed with these boards, their maps and tube maps, each team spent the train journey planning their route. They had four hours in which to score as many points as they could, with strict instructions to keep me posted about their whereabouts via text and to be back at Covent Garden to meet at 3.30pm.
After a little wander around the shops, we had dinner at a nearby Italian restaurant which I'd found using the Tastecard website, and my free trial card gave us 50% off our bill, although the cheeky restaurant then added a 20% service charge, which they apparently only do when people use this card!

After the show, we got the tube up to Belsize Park to stay at Pax Lodge, which is one of Girlguiding's World Centres. We had a nice breakfast the next morning, before heading out to South Kensington for the mueseums. Most of the girls wanted the V+A but I couldn't resist a quick tour of the dinosaurs - of course!
After a trip to Harrod's, a stop for lunch and the afternoon in Oxford Street so that they (and I) could do some shopping, we headed back to Euston for our train home. Funny how tiring a little trip like this can be, but I guess we did manage to fit a lot in.
