Beanie's Birthday Weekend, Day Four

 On Monday, it was our last day on holiday in London...... and our last breakfast atthe Y outh Hostel!!  We had cornflakes, toast, blackberry jam, fruit juice and coffee.
It was yum! 

Then we had to pack everything up, hand our room key in at reception (we asked for a new rubber stamp for Beanie's passport!!!  - they don't actually offer to do the rubber stamps, so if you want one, you have to ask) and then we headed off for the bus stop round the corner.

 And then got the number 11 back to Victoria Station.  We didn't want to go home, we had so much fun!

 Well, here we are, with time to spare!

 Andrea had to spend a penny (That's "taking a poo" in Bob-speak!!!)  We tied a tag to the door while we were there!

And then got the train back home!!  Tango decided to look out of the window this time!

 And here we are walking home from the station!!!

 Andrea gave us a surprise when we got home!  It turns out when we went to Horrids, she bought us a box of Macarons for Beanie's birthday!!!!!  We got MORE birthday cake!!!!  Andrea also got a pink box for Bob and Dilly's Mum too, with pink and brown macarons in (they didn't have any blue ones)

 We also got a mini pumpkin from Bob and Dilly's Mum, to carve a face in for halloween!!

 We had mail waiting for us too!  We got a postcard from Hammie's holiday and a birthday card from Jerry and Ben!!!

And here's the lasted stamp in my passport!!!  Good, huh?!
What a fab weekend.....!

Beanie's Birthday Weekend in London, Day Three

On Sunday, when we were having breakfast, Andrea said we were going to Do Something Special today!!  But first, we had to pack our stuff up and put it in the baggage room downstairs, because we were being moved to a different bunkbed room when we got back.

After we'd done that, we got a bus to Liverpool Street Station.  Hang on, we went there last year too...!

  We found a wonderful Statue of Bob T Bear's great great grandbear who came over from Poland in 1939.  Apparently we're meeting somebody here later on.....

 Then we went for a wander round since we had some time to spare.  We met Bunny!

 Then we came back to Liverpool Street Station, where the Great Eastern Railway works. 

 AND WE MET BOB T BEAR!!!!!!!!!!!  YAY!!!

 We travelled on Subway to a place called Angel, and it was so busy we were packed like sardines!!  Just as well it was only three stops.  Then we had a little walk, and found a drain cover that looked like a bear!

 We saw a shop that was A Very Special Bear Adoption Centre!!  We met a Giant bear outside!

 And we finally arrived at Cass Art Shop, where we were going to spend money!!!

 We did loads of shopping, it was great fun!!!

 Then we walked round to a restaurant called Browns for lunch, and passed a bookshop with a mouse in the window!!

 At the restaurant, we all sat down and said hello to everyone!!!  There was Bob T Bear, Dilly, me, Tango and George!!!  We were having a party!!!

 Tango and George had presents for Bob and Dilly.  Tango gave Bob a hole cutter gadget that cuts out bear shapes!  George got Dilly a little bottle of Pink Parfum!!!

Bob had a present for Tango too - an Orange Push Push car!!!!  How fab is that!?!?!??!

 Dilly had crochetted a scarf for George!!

 It fit him perfectly!!  He sleeps in it too!!!

 There's Bob and Tango again with the push push car.....

 and THEN, Bob gave me a present too!!!

 It's a box of gingerbread Bears that have Jazzy Pants on!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 See?!?!  I love these!!

 Dilly gave me a birthday card with a chocolate coin in too!!!  and a picture of a mouse!

 Bob gave me a card too, it had a bear on it!!!

 Then we had lunch.  Bob's Mum spotted a drink on the menu called Elderberry Fizzy which sounded interesting, so we got one and so did Bob's Mum!!!

 These were seriously yummy drinks too...!

 I had a Fakey Bacon Burger with fries for lunch.

 and so did Bob!!!  He had mayonnaise on his chips and was scooping out the mayo with his paws!!!

 Then we decided to ride the buses back to the station.  We took the long way round (via Victoria) because that's the only way Andrea knows how to get there!!!)  Which is good, because Bob and Tango had never been on a London Bus before!!

 They had a fabulous time waving out of the window to people!!!

 We couldn't get them away!!!

 At Victoria Station, we got off the bus and walked past another adoption centre to get another bus, the number 11 to Liverpool Street.

 Here we are going past Westminster Abbey.

 We all stopped for coffee before Bob and Dilly went home....

 George and Dilly didn't want to leave!!!  Neither did any of us - we had such fun today!!!

 After we waved them goodbye, we got the bus back to the youth hostel.

 And we checked into our new room for the night.  We got Bunk One this time, another top bunk!!!

 After that, we were starving, so we went out to a place called Strada for pizza.  It wasn't as nice and the Pizza Express pizze though.....

We're exhausted.  Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz..............................

Beanie's Birthday Weekend in London, Day Two

On Saturday, we all got up and had breakfast!!!  Andrea got us cornflakes, toast with apricot Jam (Tango's favourite because it's orange coloured!!!) and coffee.

Then we had a look round the hostel because Andrea forgot to show us on Friday!!  We had a game of table football!!!

 Here's the front of the St Paul's youth hostel.

Apparently, it used to be the boarding school for the St Paul's Cathedral Boy's Choir!!!!

Then, Andrea took us all on a bus to Trafalgar Square!!

They had a great big pirate ship there!!  Oh, Bob would love this.....!!!

I wish this boat was a youth hostel, we could stay on here instead!!!

And THEN we found a Big Grizzly Bear!!!!!!!!!!!
Bears do that SO much better than mice, don't you think?

On our way back to the bus stop, we found these fabulous murials!!!  This one's a crocodile!!!

George had his photo taken with the Crocodile!!!  There's even a DRAGONfly and a frog, if you look closely!

We also saw fish and squid and sharks and all sorts!!!

This one had a creepy spider on it!!!

And a Bat!!!  Sullivan said that in Dutch, those are called something mousies!!!!

Then we got on another bus.......

and got up here, near to Euston Station!!!  Where are we going now??

Gower Street?!  I've been here before....!
We found another drain cover in Gower Street!!!

And another one!!!

We walked past Bedford Square and saw a sign up about a festival.  I tied one of my CDs to the railing next to it, can you see?!?!

Then we got to Cornelissen's, one of Andrea's favourite art shops!!  What's that machine in the window??!

Oh wow!!!  Are we going to buy one?  I think Urbandon would like that......!

We went inside and had a play with the crayons while Andrea did some shopping.

After that, we went up the road to the British Museum!!!

We stopped here for a drink because we were all thirsty.

Then we got another bus.....!!

We saw this fancy clock!!!

And then we got off at High Street Kensington and went for a walk in Holland Park!!!

We saw a funny sculpture in the park too.....

And then because we were all starving hungry, we stopped for lunch at Byron's.

They do burgers here!!!

After lunch we got on another bus.  We love riding London Buses!!!  They're great fun!

We had a look at the Victoria and Albert Museum....

And then got another bus to............

Horrids!!!!!  We're going shopping in Horrid's, the Queen's Walmart shop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Andrea took us to the Laduree french patisserie at the back of the building!!!  We went to buy Something Very Special!!!!

And then it was another bus back to the youth hostel!!

We did lots of shopping today!  And Andrea even found a little sewing kit in an Oxfam shop, so was able to fix the shoulder straps on her red backpack with all the patches all over it!!  Yippee!!!

Then we went out for dinner and had another pizza.  We had a Fiorentina Pizza which had an egg on the top!!  Not as nice as the pepperoni pizza, that's our favourite!!!

And then we went to bed.  We were all pooped!!!
