On my birthday, after a long and lazy brunch, I went to South Kensington to the V&A Museum. They had a beautiful fashion collection that I absolutely loved. We then went to visit the medieval section - lots of tapestries and armour for knights and horses, as well as beautiful carved wooden church ornamentation. Rose and I finished up having home made lemonade, scones and raspberry jam and clotted cream in the garden courtyard. I then headed off to the BFI and watched a 1936 George Formby film - I like him so much! When I got home Rose had made us a roast chicken dinner for my birthday, with home grown potatoes and corn. Yum yum!
One of the big events for our holiday - Kim was finally getting his Bomber Command tattoo - in honour of his dad, who flew Lancasters with the RAF during the war. It's absolutely magnificent but was a bit nervous making. I sat in the palour and read Jane Austen while he had it done. Here's a sneak peek of three hours' worth of tattooing!
