Picture on the right is my cousin Norma from Florida standing out side the houses of Parliament on the 28th of June 2007.  I was down in London at the time on a business meeting interviewing a potential new franchisee for my company Dolly Char (UK) Ltd. I took this opportunity to show Norma around such sights as Parliament Square, Westminster Abbey, Birdcage

These last five photos are from Roberts birthday treat back in April when we took him and his friend Oak for a day out to Gulliver's Kingdom Matlock Bath in Derbyshire.  The first photo is of me and Oak on the log flume ride.

Oak on a pedal car, both boys seemed to enjoy this more than any of the more normal attractions.  It must be us getting old as we thought it looked to much like hard work!
