Stop off in London!!

Well as you can see from the title this is why I was so excited fro the next day, and who can blame me really!

As SS is abandoning me for a graduate scheme at the hilton, which I do not blame her at all. But as an early birthday present from her parents they aid for us to stop in an amazing hotel and go and see MATILDA THE MUSICAL!!!!!

After a long train ride, we really didn't fancy using the roasting, overcrowded underground and as I had a credit for Uber I decided that there definitely was no better time to use it!

If you haven't heard of Uber, it is basically an app that allows you to book a car (I say car as the cars are far too nice to be labelled as taxis) and as its linked to your card there's' no need to panic about having enough money to pay for your ride. If you want to test this app out, download it and then you can use the code lucyp25 and it will give you £10 credit (don't worry the credit doesn't have an expiry date). I would fully recommend them as it was a great way for us to get to our destination whilst taking in the sites.

After leaving our bags at the hotel we headed out for some lunch and where better than china town.



I mean just look at that mountain of food, it was really tasty and as a bonus really cheap. After having our fill of chinese we headed for a wander and then for a chill/bath in our hotel. We stayed in the Radison Blu Edwardian on Mercer street and I would fully recommend it, it was a gorgous hotel and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The other plus was the location as it was directly across from our next location.


MATILDA!!


This was amazing, if you are into musicals and haven't yet seen this get yourself down there and see it now....like right now!! The set was amazing and the cast are a really talented bunch, I was constantly laughing and I fully enjoyed myself  as did SS.


As another treat we were given some money to spend either on food or at the bar which we obviously spent on the bar.


I had a strawberry martini whilst SS had one of the house cocktails (may have forgotten the name of it, sorry). 


They were both very tasty but we decided that rather than eating downstairs we would head up and chill in the room, order room service, watch a film and just be general slobs.


I decided on the spinach and ricotta pastys with mash and cheese sauce, yes not the most healthiest option but was it one of the tastiest most likely. This was then followed up with chocolate bread and butter pudding with clotted cream, which was just the icing on top of the cake!!



Just look at it, though it may sound like your bog standard school pudding, it was soooooo much better than that.

Well I didn't see much of the film as I fell into a food induced coma till the next morning, where we went for a wander, possibly made a few cheeky purchases (you shall see them in my next post) and then headed for our train back to reality!

I have to say it was possibly the best time i have had all year and I would love to do it all over again!
