Going to London is nothing new, i go quite a few times a year to see friends and attend events for my blog but it's rare i get to take time out to be a 'propa' tourist. I was gifted some tickets for Viva Forever and i thought it would be really nice to go with Mumma Price and spend the day together. I had planned to take my camera and get happy snappy but of course i left my memory card in my laptop, opps. After a having a panic about tickets (my fault entirely after leaving my bank card in my Dads car) we hopped on a train at our local station and an hour and half later we were at Kings Cross station where i finally got to see Platform 9 3/4. My Mum and Dad are originally from London but moved to Leicestershire just before i was born so it was really nice to see where my Mum used to work when she was my age (which was literally right next to Piccadilly Theatre) and where she used to go for her lunch in a cafe just a round the corner. We headed to Carnaby street as i wanted to pay a visit to Monki (left with nothing!) and spent money we didn't have in Liberty. Dinner was at Byron burger (thanks Gemma!) and then a quick drink before the show itself which by the way was so cheesy it was sometimes embarrassing but fantastic none the less! Home at 1.30am and then back to work the next day. It was such a lovely day and it's made me even more (if that's possible) excited for New York in 4 weeks!
As i'm sure you can see, i'm having a little blogging break this week, I can assure you that normal blogging will resume on Saturday but I've broken my hiatus to do this post as i think it's a brilliant cause and worth mentioning. Starting last year, Walk in her shoes’ [WIHS], a global fundraising event has been rasing awareness to the daily plight of girls who have to walk 6 miles a day just for water. Something that we have freely and probably don't really think anything about. The challenge invites woman to walk 10,000 steps (about 5miles) every day for a week to highlight what these girls have to do every day for something they should be entitled too. The Walk in her Shoes week is from 4th – 10th March 2013 and i'm encouraging other women to sign up to the charity, which you can do right here .You can also find out more information about the project, and how to sign up.
