All excitedly waiting for the off.  Only a few tears, these parents are such a let down LOL!

@ Windsor Castle:  After a long but uneventful journey we have arrived safe and sound.  We were lucky enough to arrive in time to watch the changing of the guard,  a spectacular sight. It is certainly part of this green and pleasant land.  We are having a talk about the monarchy and Windsor castle.

Windsor Castle Workshop:  Not that the castle staff were type casting but Ki was picked to play the part of a jester who was expected to entertain and amuse the princess, in this case Summer.  A brilliant workshop, Isabelle is about to become a knight.

Fine dining at the Windsor Lad.  Everyone's had a wonderful meal.  Roxy the manager said what lovely manners we all had and it's frightening where head teacher lurk.  There was a man having dinner with his son, he told Mr Swain how well behaved we were and then his son let slip he is a local head teacher !

Park: We've checked into the hotel, all rather swish.  We are now spending an hour or so playing in the park before returning to get our heads down.  The teachers think we will be tired,  That's what they know!  LOL

Imperial War Museum: We have arrived safely at the Imperial war museum.  All looking forward to finding 'Little Manfred'.  We will explain when we get home

Being on a school trip is no excuse not to have a cake.  Georgia's birthday was celebrated in style with doughnuts all round.

For some us it was our first flight and we didn't need a passport.  The views from the top were amazing.  The whole of London at our feet!]

In front of Buckingham Palace we brought the tourists to a stand still with our annual game of 'Guardsman'.  The idea is; we stand as still as possible while certain horrible people who shall remain nameless (Mr Swain and Mrs Lancey) try and put us off. The winners were Captain Kushal Magar of the 1st Gurkha Rifles and Major Nyah Humphries of the Somerset Light Infantry.

Bistro1:   A fantastic meal at Bistro 1.  Who knew fish cakes could be this good, the burgers are good too?  I don't think Kai agrees though.
