This morning Madam and I headed in to London to get the tail end of The Big Egg Hunt. I have enjoyed reading about Zoe’s egg hunting expeditions and had planned a little hunt for ourselves, however when I heard the eggs would all be in one location (Covent garden) I knew this would be better for Madam rather than traipsing over London.
After an eventful journey-car accident outside Newbury Park Station and station closure at Holborn due to someone falling in front of tube this meant getting off tube at Chancery Lane and finding our way (thank god for Google maps and Iphone!)- we arrived at 9.30 which was great as we managed to see the eggs before the crowds. We loved it and had a great time discovering them all. 210 in total but I reckon we saw approx 190, some I think had been vandalised and were not on display. Here is a small taster:-
We purchased an Ispy book so we could mark them off and went round a few times just in case we missed any.
This one is my favourite:-
Special mention has to go to The Alpha Egg of London I was thrilled to find that M was for Marathon:-
This is now the background on my Iphone in case I forget ‘I’m a Marathoner!’
We had such a nice time (thanks goes to Zoe for without her blogging about this I would never have known about it) and were home in time for lunch which was just as well as Madam has come down with a temperature.
I managed the last run of week 13 not my favourite training session-hills 10 times up and down, but legs felt good considering the 20 miles they travelled yesterday.
