Sunday came down to Epsom for the party (grandpas sister Joan's 90th) where we met all the rellies quite a nice bunch got along very well over a nice steak. then we ended up staying with Babs and Nigel (sister of Granpas) at a travel lodge in leatherhead (just south of london) so had a bit of pizza there and then bed.  I caught the train up to London in the morning pretty quick trip and wandered around for the day and eventually got in contact with Ian Lee (one of my old school mates) and met him and his girlfriend for lunch. We then went and had a game of pool and a bit of shopping and found this giant toystore it had 4 levels of toys for all ages and so so bussy.  then went back to his place and stayed the night on the couch.  Up early this morning and back into the center of town and found a little hostel where i managed to get a room for £18 or $47 in real money so pretty expensive for a bed in a 10 bed doorm. After that headed into the British Museum which had some really cool stuff but heaps of bad stuff like little bits of borken pottery so you had to search through all this stuff to find the interesting things not very good way to do it id say.  Got sick of that pretty quickely although might go back tomorrow morning.  I then decided to try my luck elsewhere and bussed it down to the Tower of London which is the big castle in the center of town.  Amazing place even for £12 but well worth it.  joined a tour and it was great fun heaps of cool swords and things and saw the crown jewles which were pretty amazing (a little out of my price range) and wandered around the Tower bridge (the cool one) then finally back to the hostel and now here i am about to leave you once again.  Now im off to meet Ant one of chelseas friends boyfriends (if that works) to give him some stuff i brought over for him and to have a beer together so ive gotta run.  Much love to everybody hope all is well.  Till next time.
