      Brilliant Kev. It's officially rainy season here so I'm trying to dodge rain. Don't know if I have as much motivation as you to actually head out in it! Well done. Looks like you're gonna have to do a few more of those according to your weather forecast.

      Sadly we are only in London for a stop-over. We wanted to break up the travel a bit for Leo (and let him ride the tube!). We'll have some time to go and see a few sights, but then we'll be gone. Can't afford to stay there longer! ;)
