8.30am - While Alexa sleeps, Elizabeth undertakes the first leg of her looooong journey by walking to the station in the early morning sunshine.
9.30am - Sausage sandwich for brekkie, then on the train!
12.42pm - Elizabeth disembarks from train at King's Cross and is reunited with Alexa.
1.30pm - Picnic in the park. After years of mocking Alexa, Elizabeth is shocked to encounter an actual barefoot hippy brazenly meandering in the park with no shoes. Alexa gets cold, so the two retreat to Alexa's house and watch Charade (very good film - Bette on Toast seal of approval!)
7.30pm - A night out at a 1950s party in aid of Japan is planned, and it's time to get dressed! By amusing coincidence, both girls had picked the same dress to wear. Despite Elizabeth's protestations that it would be TOTALLY HILARIOUS to turn up in the same frock (It would! We would look like some sort of nightclub singing sister act!), Alexa is secretly relieved when the zip on her dress refuses to do up and she is forced to find an alternative outfit.
8.00pm - Elizabeth is very excited because they are going to...
The Comedy Store! To see...
The Comedy Store Players!
I also got to meet up with one of my imaginary-friends-off-the-internet, which was nice too!
10.00pm - Elizabeth manages to get over her "OMG I was in the same room as Josie Lawrence and Paul Merton" excitement, and moves on to the next stop of the adventure...
A huge plate of ice cream at 11pm might SEEM like a brilliant idea, but it really isn't. Elizabeth and Alexa waddled home clutching their bellies and sobbing, and then went to bed.
9.00am - Alexa goes to work, unwisely leaving Elizabeth in charge of her laptop. Several stolen photographs later, Elizabeth leaves Brixton, hops on a bus and goes to the National Portrait Gallery.
Hello, lovely bridges, I didn't half miss you.
Fabulous weekend. I hope the rest of my Easter holiday is this good!
