Usually between Christmas and New Year we have tried to take the Boys somewhere interesting and sometimes something to help with their school work. We took Eldest here, The Imperial War Museum London, when he had started his GCSE work and now Youngest has begun his, he wanted to go back.
We went down on the Tuesday after Christmas and it was very busy with tourists but not so much that we didn’t get to see everything. It has just re-opened after a re-fit so we could see the difference between our two visits.
Youngest and DH think that the following vehicle would be good for me, especially on a road out of our village which is extremely narrow and some people race along like it is part of an F1 course! The rest of us, including me, slow down to a crawl or stop when cars are passing but a lot don’t!
The building which houses the Imperial War Museum used to be the Bethlem Royal Hospital or Bedlam as it was better known and opened in 1815
This picture was taken in 1896
In 1930 the hospital moved again and the building was given to London County Council where the park was developed for the locals and the building was opened to house the Imperial War Museum in 1936. Bethlem Royal Hospital is still in existence today and is now purely a psychiatric hospital.
Tomorrow is a House Job day and grocery shopping and at the weekend, I am pleased to say we do not have anything planned, so I am going to try and get some quilting done!
I hope you are having a thrilling Thursday.
