London Visit

Rich and I took a trip last week to visit the in-laws in Haslemere, just outside of London. We decided to go by train so we headed off on the long trip from Huddersfield train station, when we got to Wakefield station for our connection to London the announcers were practically yelling for everyone to stand back, me being my usual gormless self wondering why eventually decided to look in the direction everyone else was looking. Low and behold a vintage stream train named the Oliver Cromwell was pulling into the station! How awesome is that! Here are some pictures of it







So we get to London and then crossed it after what felt like an age, pulled into Waterloo station so I get my tourist on and start taking pictures, much to Rich's disgust! He actually pretended he was not with me! Gotta love that Victorian architecture in the stations!




Once we got to Haslemere and got picked up, another two hour long trek we got to his parents home to be greeted by this:






Monty the 13week old black Labrador, cute as a button! Much fun was had between us! We went to a lovely beach, I forget the name, somewhere near Portsmouth and we went into London to do a bit of sight seeing and shopping.



London Eye
Victoria and Albert Museum

So now I am home, have been a couple of days but its been pretty mental around here, Rich starting a new job and changing rooms around and lots of work to catch up on! People to see, people to shout at, the usual!
