Debra's Visit

Debra had planned a visit to London for 5 nights so I organised a super fun weekend for her.

Friday 27 March 2009
Tonight I had booked Debra and myself tickets to see the Lion King sneak peaks - Lion King Sneak Peak. It was excellent! The costumes and props were amazing. I would totally recommend it to everyone and anyone. Our tickets were around £35.00 I think, and they weren’t too bad.

As you will all no doubt remember - TNT Picture, I won free tickets for two to Stonehenge and Bath and as Debra was my camera woman, she got invited (invited herself) along.
We headed down to Baker Street and headed on down to Stonehenge.
Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument located in the English county of Wiltshire. One of the most famous sites in the world, Stonehenge is composed of earthworks surrounding a circular setting of large standing stones and sits at the centre of the densest complex of Neolithic and Bronze Age monuments in England, including several hundred burial mounds.

Archaeologists had believed that the iconic stone monument was erected around 2500 BC. However one recent theory has suggested that the first stones were not erected until 2400-2200 BC, whilst another suggests that bluestones may have been erected at the site as early as 3000 BC.

Free entry was included with the prize so we got our audio guide and headed on in. Unfortunately for us though the audio guide was so BORING and full of “I thinks” or “the theory is”, etc, etc. So we decided to do our own thing ...

…. It was pretty cool to see Stonehenge, mainly though to tell people “Oh yeah, I been there”, but otherwise its kinda disappointing… just some rocks in a field …

From Stonehenge it was a short ride to Bath.

Bath is a city in the ceremonial county of Somerset in the south west of England. The city was founded, among surrounding hills, in the valley of the River Avon around naturally occurring hot springs (the only ones in the United Kingdom, using the common definition of a spring with water above average human body temperature) where the Romans built baths and a temple.

Bath is a really beautiful city, unfortunately it was a bit cold and rainy and we didn't really have much time, but its definitely a city that I want to come back and visit.

Debra was going home on Monday especially so that she could go to the Church on Sunday.

So I recruited some girls for a girls only Church session!

We had a great time and me and Debra partied the night away until getting booted out when the pub closed.
Me and Debra have also made a pact what happens at the Church ... stays at the Church.
