Yesterday, myself and my eldest son Christopher decided to have a day out in London, starting off at the Tate Modern. He has already been there-last week, but only saw a limited amount, so we went for more of a look. Here are some pictures of us walking towards the Millenium Bridge to get to the Tate on the South Bank.
It was freezing, so I wore my trusty faux fur leopardprint coat, with my M&S stripey cardi, M&S polo neck and H&M purple cords.
We had a really nice look around the Tate Modern-I had pre concieved ideas of what it would be like (as in I wouldn't like it!), but was pleasantly surprised. I particularly enjoyed the works of Matisse, Monet and Picasso. There was also more modern day works of art, videos, sculptures and 'things' which were also very modern and interesting!! So, after our intellectual jaunt, we decided to hit the West End for some window shopping and erm, shopping!
We left the Tate Modern and was in Oxford Circus in no time! We hit NikeTown for Christopher (no purchases here) then H&M-yes for me!! I was very good, even Christopher said 'I can't believe how quick you were in here mum!' I went straight for the woolly hats, got 2, queued to pay, saw some legwarmers, grabbed them, paid and out-phew!
Then we went to Hamleys for some Christmas ideas-currently Lego is at the top of the list and by this time we were hungry so we headed to Argyll Street, for some chinese food-sweet and sour pork with fried rice and noodles-oh, so yummy!
We went to Carnaby Street and I looked in American Apparel for a browse-I saw some lovely wool cable leggings, but resisted temptation. Then we hit a London souvenir shop for a wander and then Christopher went into a shop called 'Size' and got himself some great Reebok trainers in the sale for only£20-they're really awesome, he loves them.
So, all shopped out, we got on the train and came home. We had a great day out and even managed to dodge the rain too!!
