Delayed train that went all round the houses.  Arrived home today cream crackered.  Well London DID belong to me for a couple of days.  Did what we set out to do; see the Francis Bacon exhibition, visit John Soan Museum, see Electric Six in concert at Sheherds Bush Empire and do a couple of walks (The Blitz and Apparitions, Allyways and Ale).  Heheh we do like to cram a lot into these little jaunts.  Can’t wait to write about it all, with pics.  Should keep me going for quite a while…..

So excited to be going to London for a few days!  Not been for about 18 months so it will be good.  We’ll be seeing the Francis Bacon Exhibition at the Tate Britain so I will make some notes.

 Also going to Shepherds Bush Empire to see the Electric Six.  Most people have only heard ‘Gay Bar’ and ‘High Voltage’, but they are far far better than those hits.  Their music is evolving and constantly changing all the time.
