I’ve been quiet here on Just Frances once again, but if you ask my friends, they’ll tell you I haven’t been quiet in reality! That’s because I’ve been away to London. (And busy giving my first-ever public talk!)

The main reason for the trip was to attend the Great British Beer Festivalmy 40th birthday present! But when it was learned that I’d never actually been to London, my friends made sure we planned for a bit of site-seeing, too.

We drove to London last Wednesday (after an over-night near Stirling) then spent Thursday touring Wimbledon and attending the beer festival. We then spent Friday touring around London before driving north on Saturday for an over-night in Wakefield. Then on Sunday, we made the scenic drive back to Scotland.

It was a fun and exciting week and I’m really looking forward to my next trip to the Big Bad City.

I’m going to end this post there, because I’m super busy with a million little things (I’ll tell you about them later). But I know if I don’t post these photos now, I never will!

Oh! And a great big thank you to my wonderful friends for giving me such a wonderfully perfect and generous birthday present. I really am blessed!

London suits you! Glad to read you’re keeping busy as I always worry when you’re too quiet. Sounds like you have terrific friends there though.

Glad you enjoyed your visit to us Frances.  You looked like you were enjoying yourself in Trafalgar Square, even if you spent rather too much time with the mouse.

However, I would point out that I have been regularly standing on that plinth long before the big blue cock, and would’ve appreciated a mention in the credits.

Thanks, Mathew! I really am blessed to have such terrific friends. (Here and there.)

Nora, please do forgive me for neglecting to mention you. I know that often times important celebrities wish to blend in to their surroundings unnoticed and I (wrongly) assumed this was the case for you. It shan’t happen again. :)
