Where I stayed
BUT...none of the stores opened up until after 10am. So we had to occupy ourselves walking around, going for tea and having some fun in the mall until then. And then it took us almost an hour at the different stores to find one that we were willing to spend money on. And then after we finished shopping, we needed to pack and shower and get ready. We squeezed in going to see Oz for lunch but it was really tight. By the time we got back to Blue Bells to pick up our stuff, we were an hour behind schedule. So we got a taxi, ran for the trains at Paddington station...ran from the trains to another shuttle train...ran from the shuttle train to check-in. We made it to check-in 10 minutes before it closed
"We haven't started boarding yet..."
Oh man, wow! But he does say I've got time to go into the lounge and get a drink and clean up a bit.
I did finally dry off about halfway through the flight...thanks to using all 3 of the vents that blow out.
So all of that, and I never did get to see the Changing of the Guard, or go up in the London Eye, or see Big Ben...
And now we are home. Time to try to sell all of our stuff...
