We are going to celebrate Esme’s birthday, this Happy Monday, by taking her to London where she wants to see the Aquarium.

The South Bank is deserted; everything seems shut or is being refurbished – including the London Eye. But the Aquarium is open and despite the high prices – ¬£100+ for 3 adults and 3 children (that’s me, Sheila, Louisa, Esme, Rocco and Tove but Harper doesn’t pay) – the experience is good. There is plenty to see and the kids are happy. Oddly enough the block of ice in the penguin area is one of their ¬†high points. Mine was watching the piranhas eat a dead fish and the jellyfish that changed colour.

Afterwards we eat in Wagamama‘s – Esme’s choice.
