We spent the day in fabulous Covent Garden yesterday. My sister and I loved it ever since we first came to London, eight years ago. We wanted our parents to like it as much as we did, and enjoy it to its fullest!
Here is a picture of the best parents in the whole wide world!
We got tickets for one of the best musical play ever: Mamma Mia! Both my sisters know the lyrics to all the songs, and I'm quite a big Abba fan myself.
We got free coke cans while we were running around. The can encouraged me to "share a coke with Dude". Coca Cola always has the cleverest publicity.
We walked around the shops and then stopped for coffee and dessert in Le Pain Quotidien.
I asked for a latte, and it was the perfect blend between milk and coffee.
My sister got belgian style hot chocolate, and we were all pretty enthralled watching her prepare it.
She was quite delighted herself!
My parents shared strawberry sponge cake. I mischievously stole a spoonful of their whipped cream.
My sister and I shared a mixed berry tart. It was so delicious. The berries were so fresh, the cream so light and sweet!
We said 'merci' and 'au revoir' and headed to the theatre.
Before the show I got to see my lovely "baby" sister. Not being with her has been so hard for all of us. We just want these three weeks to fly by so we can be with our baby again!
The show was Abba-solutely fabulous! The crowd laughed, cried, and we all danced along to 'Dancing Queen'. Men included.
After a fun but very emotional night we took the underground and headed home.
The city however, was more alive than ever.
London never sleeps.
But we sure do.
