Shopping and a Show
London Day 2 Sunday 21st May
Mum, Emily and I left the house at precisely 10:25am to catch a 10:55 train to Waterloo Station. Carter and Dacu left about 2 minutes after, they had a very exciting day ahead at the Twickenham Sevens!!!
We got to the station on time and got the underground tube to Piccadilly Circus. From there we went to the ambassador’s theatre and booked tickets for the 3 o’clock STOMP show!!!! We booked the tickets and walked back to Hamleys. We had a look inside Hamleys and it was mind-blowing. It is 6 storeys high (including the ground floor) with a basement.
-1(Basement): Star Wars
Ground floor: Lots of different toys but mainly remote control and dolls.
1. Water based toys e.g. Water guns and bath toys
2. Craft and BIG Lolly shop
3. LEGO and only Lego (they made the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and a red telephone box with a guard outside, out of Lego. Full sized.)
4. MARVINS I MAGIC.
5. Heaps of different types of Toys!!!!!!
I got 3 of my nails done by a lady out the front of the ground floor doing a “tutorial” of this product. We watched lots of different tutorials but my favs were either the magic show or the magic pens that change colour if you put this special pen over it. You could also get a blower that made you art have a spray paint effect (Same set)!!!After Hamleys we went to find something to eat but first we stopped off at gap and Em and I brought 1 dress each!!!!
Then we did find somewhere to eat it was called PIZZA PALOUR!! It was delicious! Em had a Salami and I had a Margaretta.
After the food, we rushed back to the Ambassador’s theatre, just in time to watch STOMP! Stomp was so different to any other stage performances I had ever seen before. It was extremely creative and so FUNNY. My favourite was this song where they were using only newspapers to make the beat and rhythm.
After the show, it was an extremely fast walk back to the underground station where we got on the Bakerloo line to Paddington Station.
Meanwhile Carter and Dacu were having a sensational day at the London sevens at Twickenham (The home of English rugby)!!! They Got to their seat on the 10-metre line, Halfway up the stand (In the East stand). They started off supporting NZ but we got knocked out by Scotland 21-24 but New Zealand should have won because New Zealand were up 21-0 at half time.
After that they supported England and they beat South Africa in a nail biting finish 17-12, England scored after the hooter had gone and won the game. That meant that England were in a semi-final against Canada!
The next game we watched was Wales vs France we supported WALES!!! And they won easily (well not very easily) 26 – 17.After that we had to leave to get back to Paddington station on time. We travelled on the underground tube to Paddington.
Mum, Em and Lucy arrived about 5 minutes after we got there and we got some sandwiches and drinks and then got on our train home. It seemed like a very long train ride even though it was only 2 hours. Once we were of the train in Cardiff we drove back to Pwll and arrived at about 10:30pm.
