London was great! - and hot....

Back again! -

An evening walk in London for me and my husband...over Tower Bridge - and down to London brigde....lovely sight during night.

London was so terribly hot that people faintet in the underground and on the streets........

And London was so CHEAP!! .- not because of all the summer sales, but for me - I was so hot that shopping became a "no-do"..... how many husbands do you know telling their wifes to "please go shop something! - you cant go home from London with nothing else than new makeup!" - so I bought three items at Mexx - took me ten minutes, hehe...
Our teenagers took care of the shopping part! - they are REALLY good in shopping!! They also went up in London eye.Carnaby street - charming streets of London - more shopping....oh God my feet hurts!! walking walking walking.....You don`t go to England without eating fish and chips...... and every time I regret doing it, because it really tastes nothing!!? Also makes me sick...hehe. We, my husband and I went to Notting hill - a tiny little place of London, so quiet and so different from all the madness, only a ten minute trip with the underground - from the madness in the shopping street...

Anyway - the teenagers are satisfied - I am tired (getting old, haha...) - and honestly - quite ok with some rain today.......?

London er en herlig by! Kan tenke meg det er et shoppe-eldorado for ungdommene ja :) Tenk på alle de pengene du sparte på å ikke shoppe, de kan du jo nå bruke på roser her hjemme ;) Du var vel å tittet på noen av de fantatiske store hagene/parkene i London? Men jeg kunne nok vært en av de som besvimte på gaten, uff jeg tåler ikke denne varmen så godt. Er nesten umulig å få sove om natten. Men nå blir det vel litt mer levelig. Kan nok være godt for plantene også nå med en ordentlig rotbløyte.

Ser ut til å hatt en flott ferie. Det har vært overvarmt her også...men ikke mye regn. Ble dere berørt av det voldsomme uværet?
Rosen min er en buskrose....ikke vet jeg hva den heter. Den har jeg fått etter en gammel tante som ikke er tanta til Beate!! Den er utrolig flott....men blomstrer jo så fort. Ha en herlig sommerdag videre. Deilig med litt avkjøling!!
