You may remember last week Mummy left me on my own all day. She went to London with her sister and cousin to walk around and see the sights.

They went to all sorts of interesting places.

The first place they went to was St Brides church in Fleet Street.

Then they went to Temple. Lots of Lawyers and barristers work here. They have beautiful gardens and buildings.

As they walked by Temple church a wedding had just finished and the flowers were been thrown away. They felt sorry for the flowers and decided to take some with them.
The flowers will appear again in some more of the photo's.

Then they went to a pub called Blackfrairs. It looks very strange inside to me. Who are the funny little people?

They saw st Paul's cathedral, there was a man there doing pavement art. He was very good.

Then they stopped at St Katherine's dock for a picnic. Maybe Fat fat Daddy should move the boat to here.(Those flowers again).

Then they walked across Tower bridge.

They stopped at Borough Market for sangria, I think the flowers got a drink too.

They met Christopher Robin at the Tate Modern, I think he liked the flowers.

Mummy said the best thing in the Tate Modern was the view of the millennium bridge and St Paul's.

Then they stopped for more food and drink. Is it me or is there a lot of food and drink involved in this walk?

Mummy decided to cool off in some fountains. I should have lent her my life jacket.

They said goodbye to the London eye and Big Ben and headed for home, with the flowers.

Hope you enjoyed hearing about Mummy's day out.

Look at all the people we had on the boat last Sunday. I think they were all happy because the sun was shining.

I cooled down under a sprinkler, while we waited to go through a lock.

Mummy took a photo of a dragon fly. Its ok, but its not as cute as me.

On the way home I sat by the window with the wind in my ears.

I hope you all had good weekends too.

I hope you all had a great weekend. The weather here was sooooo hot!

We went out on the boat on Sunday and look what Fat fat Daddy did?! He went swimming in the Thames. He tried to encourage me to join him. I knew my little legs wouldn't reach the bottom, so I really wasn't sure about that.

Help, help, I'm drowning.

I have never been so pleased to be back on dry land.

It certainly cooled me down.
