In theory I had plenty of time to get from Cambridge first thing. However… there was an ‘incident’ at Audley End and as it was the train in Kings Cross took an hour and a half. I Got myself to the V&A on the Picadilly Line (stopping off to use facilities at St Pancras – top tip – free!) and made it to the V&A about 11.45. After dumping my luggage, realising the exhibition i wanted to see had closed the day before, bought some postcards I just made my way straight to the cafe, clutching a map and a whats on guide. Deciding that a bit of sustenance and a sit down would help my frazzled self. Lunch lets not beat around the bush is ‘London prices’ a pork chop and one side was £12. But even if you are broke do set aside some thing for a cup of tea or coffee just so you can sit in the magnificent William Morris designed cafe. Three quite different rooms in style.

Off to London/Cambridge for the weekend. I’ve managed to fit in a quick lunch with London based friend before going to see family in Cambridge. Now am in the preparing before going mode but being awfly slow about it. Not looking forward to an early start tomorrow. I’m not good with getting up in the dark!
