There was a spare seat on the D & T (Design and Technology) trip to London to visit the Design Museum and the Borough Markets and the teacher in charge asked if I would like to accompany them. As it was on a day when Darrell was on rush photocopying duty I was able to say yes! Woooo hoooooo
Our coach was bijou with seating for 33 and very comfortable but the journey to London seemed endless, despite my great excitement, and I was glad that I had bought ample sustenance to boost my flagging energy levels…..
…… which included a comprehensive fruit salad which provide me with most of my 5 a day needs and some Lucozade Lite Cherry from the nice people at Lucozade Towers, to keep me hydrated and refreshed.
…. but it was well worth it, I collected lots of leaflets, just in case I had to do a project about my day when I got back to school and some free badges for Darrell and Nigel.I filled out the visitor questionnaire ….
…… and soaked up as much of the creative atmosphere as I could.
The view on the top floor was stunning, I looked at the “Gherkin” and thought of The Apprentice for some strange reason……
…… and our friend Hugh who now lives in Notting Hill and lives the showbiz life …. I wasn’t sure where Notting Hill was in relation to the Museum, but I guessed it was on the other side of the Thames and sent Hugh a huge Wolverhampton wave in what I hoped was the right direction.It would have been nice to have been able to pop in for a cup of showbiz tea and gossip, but this really was a whistle stop trip!
Before we left the museum, I couldn’t help but gaze up at the luxury apartments next door and wondered if anyone famous lived there. I also thought how romantic it would be to have a posh restaurant underneath where you lived. I wondered if they would send a tray up if ever you didn’t fancy cooking tea!
