London ...here we come.........


Jim and Ruby outside Harrods this afternoon..we get so excited when we are 'up smoke' as we (Well me really) am a country girl who stays well away from cities especially big ones like London..........

Can't go to London without bumping into the odd Tudor you know ........

Outside and inside the Brompton Oratory ....didnt take these pics as it was a bit dark when we got there ......
Went to London today to pick up Sophie who has been singing over Christmas so was unable to be at home with everyone .......She was singing at the Brompton Oratory which was an amazing place....it was like stepping into a bit of Italy.....x

Gracie wrapped in Christmas paper and opening her pressie in the vid clip .......
