Goodenough Hotel - Room 491
Happy birthday HMTQ!
Easter Sunday and the Easter Bunny didn't come - maybe he didn't know where I was.

And, we have changed rooms again - three rooms in three days - I bet reception just love us!

We are still in the basement but now our room faces the street and the west, so at least we can see what the day is like. We now have two bedrooms and a bathroom with a bath. Let's hope we have stopped moving!

When we checked in, the guy at reception told us that because it is a long weekend, that we have to have our breakfast over the road at the Goodenough College and that it is really brunch and is on from 10.30 am to 2.30 pm. So, we have been wandering over for breakfast at 10.30 am and totally wasting the morning but it's nice to slow down a bit. Today I checked with the girl on the till and she said that breakfast starts at 8.00 am! What the?

Today being Easter Sunday, we decided that probably not much would be open but Phil checked on his mobile and found the nearest Lebara store and we decided to walk there and sort out our mobile sim card, once and for all. When we arrived there, it was shut, of course, and is a grotty looking roller door. It doesn't fill us with much confidence that they will do the right thing by us and reinstall our sims on our phones. We have decided not to go back until Tuesday, when everything will be back to normal and hopefully open.

The architecture in Britian is amazing. This is a Masons building.

This is the first sign of Easter we have seen.

We had a drink in the Prince of Wales Pub.

This weird guy was walking along the street and we stopped to talk to him. Not sure what he said he does but it was something to do with Spanish dancing.

We are at the Lion King theatre and decided to pick up our tickets for next Sunday, but they said to come back in 15 minutes because the people for today's show are picking up their tickets. So we went to an American pizza place for a quick bite to eat. After lunch I walked around the corner to the Lion King's box office and it's all locked up - so are the doors to the theatre, because the show has started. Never mind - we'll pick up our tickets next Sunday before the show.

We walked to the bridge that has been closed because of the Climate Change protestors.

The blue bells are starting to bloom. Spring in London is lovely.

Then we walked back to the hotel and stopped just around the corner for a coffee and cake. Phil ordered a large Americana coffee and was surprised when he received a huge cup full of black coffee!! Duh! It was so strong, he had to go back in and ask for some warm milk!

As we had late breakfast and late lunch, we have decided to stay in tonight.
