Benoit was in town, went for a drink around St Pancras.
Fish and Chips
Friday 13th April 2018
Fish and chips for dinner. Erika often has fish and chips for lunch at school on Fridays, so we rarely ever have it at home. As it was the Easter holidays for her still it seemed like a good opportunity!
Party and The Selfish Giant
Saturday 14th April 2018
Erika had a birthday party to attend in the morning, then as soon as that was finished we whizzed her into the centre to watch a musical version of Oscar Wilde's The Selfish Giant.
House Party and Archway Bridge
Sunday 15th April 2018
Chie invited some of her friends round for a party at our place in the daytime. I ducked out for a bit in the afternoon for a walk, but didn't really have enough time to get out into the countryside so instead just walked up to Archway Bridge.

Some GevCham arrived in the daytime. Played Marble Run with Erika in the evening.

Opened the crates of GevCham which arrived yesterday.
