The List

Towards the end of the summer when all the excitement of our wedding and trip to Bali was fading, Mr B & I made a list of all the things we would like to do over the next few years...

So far we've accomplished two - visiting Buckingham Palace (which was amazing) and going to the Open Air Theatre at Regents Park (we saw Gigi in the pouring rain, it was great fun).

We have a lot to look forward to...

Seeing Phantom of the Opera
Seeing Les Miserables
Doing a pub crawl in town
Going to a concert at St Martin in the Fields
Visiting St Pauls Cathedral
Watching England at Twickenham
Watching England at Wembley
Visiting the Tower of London again
Going to the British Grand Prix
Going to Thorpe Park to scream and feel queasy
Having afternoon tea somewhere very posh - The Ritz? The Berkley? The Savoy? Where is best?
Visiting Big Ben (we've heard you can go up to the top?!) and the Houses of Parliament
Going to the Natural History Museum
Flying on the London Eye
Watching tennis at Wimbledon, with strawberries and cream of course
Visiting Stonehenge
Visiting Westminster Abbey
Going on a helicopter tour over town
Going on a Thames cruise
Going on the Thames on a RIB (google it, it looks great)
Going on a Ducktour
Having a picnic in Hyde Park or Regents Park
Rowing on the Serpentine
Visiting Whipsnade Zoo (guess whether this was my idea or Mr B's)
Visiting the Old Water Mill in St Albans for delicious waffles

Looking round Hatton Gardens and Mr B hopefully buying me something
Going to a polo match
Eating at The Fat Duck
Visiting Hamleys at Christmas
Visiting the V & A
Visiting Hampton Court Palace
Watching a movie at the IMAX

We are so lucky to live close to one of the best and most exciting cities in the world.

Do you think we have enough to be getting on with?
