My fabulous weekend in London...

I waited for months...but finally the date arrived....27th October 2012 - the night that Muse were playing the o2 in London - and I had my glorious ticket! (Along with my daughter's).
Yes, Jessie and I are huge fans of Muse - I'm afraid I converted her into a fan years ago with my relentless playing of their songs (funnily enough, my younger daughter Chloe can't stand them...weird...she's into One Direction - agreed, the less said the better.)
Anyway...Muse were fantastic - goes without saying I know, but they really were. Matt was in fine voice and he looked pretty damned fine too. It was my fourth Muse concert - I've seen them at Nottingham Arena, Sheffield Arena, Machester Old Trafford and now at the o2 in London...bliss - can't wait for the next tour!
I've got to say - London was just beautiful. We decided to make a weekend of it and arrived in London Royal Docks, Docklands to stay in our hotel. Then we hopped on the tube to London Bridge and strolled down the river to see the houses of Parliament and back again. We had lunch in this fabulous mediterranean restaurant called Troia - I highly recommend it - beautiful food, great service and reasonable prices.
On our way back we went through a street market which was really lovely. Everyone we spoke to throughout the entire weekend was lovely and friendly and I found London (the bit we went to anyway) to be really lovely, really clean and incredibly well managed. I'm planning our next trip - we're going for a shopping weekend closer to Christmas and I seriously can't wait to go again!
