It was the last day and night before our early morning departure. We spent most of the day getting our bags packed (what a job after having the stuff rolling around the back of the van for 6 weeks)!
Checked into the Travellers Inn @ Heathrow. So we could make a quick exit at 5am the next morning for our 8:40am flight (this stupid 3 hour checkin is crazy)!
Once safely in the room, we caught the bus to the tube station and headed into London to do last minute postage and stuff before we left. We then went and had a lovely dinner on the Espanyola one of the lovely boats permanently mored on the river and is now a restaurant.
We then went to see our last play in London - The Country Wife. It was a hillarious play about the beautiful young country wife taken to the city by a jealous older husband who overprotects her from the wicked men of London and it all backfires on him. Really well done.
Caught the train back and we'd booked into a hotel not dissimilar to the Formula One's we'd had such horrible experiences with in France. The hotel was new and large as was the room, which also had two double beds. But the beds were knackered and yet it all looked brand new. I ended up sleeping in the other bed as we continually rolled together in the bed.
Oh the joys of travelling!
