So just re-read my last post and I haven't done any of it - no shop update and no little haptree frogs jumping to life yet, instead ...
...I went on the London Eye with the kids! Its awesome but it was boiling inside the pods. You have to get in them while it continues revolving - that really added to the excitement although you kind of get herded through in groups by burly security guards wearing pink ties and smart suits. I imagine there's less herding if you go on one of the champagne flights.
Big Ben from the eye, E was really amazed just how big and sprawling London is and P loved it, he didn't seem remotely freaked out - it goes so high!
Lovely day had by all!
