London's Brilliant Parade 

It felt like ages since we’d done anything touristy, so on Friday me and Girlfriend hopped onto a Virgin Masterblaster and were at London Euston in the blink of an eye.
We are now the proud owners of two Oyster cards and feel accordingly sophisticated.

We dumped our stuff in an overheated little hotel not far from Nelson’s Column and inconveniently placed for avoiding Evita fans, then headed for Bloomsbury, a few stops away on the thingy line.
There we visited the Foundling Museum, which was really interesting, and not just a little moving.
As well as the childhood exhibition, we took in lots of paintings featuring busty ladies, tantalisingly not quite in the nip, and sat in Handel’s iPod armchairs. After all the bustle of getting there, it was serene and lovely.
Tempting though it was, I resisted the urge to fiddle with the old man’s organ.

After a nice little Italian we regressed back to the 1950s for a spot of ten pin bowling at the wonderful All Star Lanes. It was good fun - you can’t have too much fun, can you? - and we drank daft cocktails and left a little light headed. Nice signage.
