Short famous people
Today the day began with a trip to Madame Tussaud's, where we were surprised at just how short many famous people are - Daniel Craig, Johnny Depp, Judy Dench to name a few. The new Marvel 4d movie was a highlight but both of us opted out of the scream corridor. We then headed to Kensington Palace, where they have put together a very unusual collection of rooms - some more successful than others. Seeing Queen Victoria's wedding dress was a highlight. She was short too. A walk through Hyde Park followed and a fantastic number of squirrels were seen - count is 11 live and 1 dead. The Albert memorial was viewed next, an amazing thing but the question must be asked was it good use of public money??? We then walked for what seemed like forever to find the Diana memorial which really was not worth the effort. The Winter Wonderland was next, it is basically the A and P show on steroids with lots of stalls and food. The highlight was the ice world with amazing ice sculptures but damn it was cold in the tent. There was an ice slide that Maree had to try and boy was it fun, a great deal of speed was achieved resulting in Cheryl completely missing the photo and nearly getting taken out by Maree at the bottom. We then tried to find Dover Street Market but failed and instead walked up Park Lane, we watched two men spend a long time uncovering an Aston Martin Vanquish. We walked down Oxford Street and then headed back to Liberty where we had a quick cup of tea before doing a spot of shopping.
