A Helicopter Tour Over London

This past weekend Ian & I went on a Helicopter for a tour over London.

I know! We are very lucky.

It was a birthday gift for Ian's birthday from his Grandad. I was so excited when we found out he bought me a ticket so I could go with him : )

We wanted to do it over the summer whilst the weather was clearer but because of the Olympics, the air space was limited to certain aircraft.

The weather was quite gloomy whilst we were up in the air but we could still a lot of amazing views.

                                       Buckingham Palace

The Thames with Tower Bridge in view

Parliament and Big Ben

St Pauls Cathedral

The millenium dome / The o2 

Police helicopter in the distance

It was such an experience and completely different to being in an aeroplane. 


We flew over my area and was in central London within 5 minutes. It's so close!!

I hope you enjoyed my pictures : )

I Passed!

Sourced Via Google

Guess what?

I passed my driving test yesterday! Woop Woop : D

I was really nervous and did not sleep at all well the previous night. I conjured a picture in my mind of having a really mean examiner and failing after lots of mistakes. Luckily the one I did have was upbeat and chirpy, and that made me feel at ease. 

The best part of all was that I had zero faults/minors! Myself and my instructor were amazed, he said that in his 32 years of teaching I am the third person he knew to get no faults. Let's just hope I can drive that well all the time now!

I am mostly proud of myself because at the beginning of the year one of my goals was to be brave and finally learn to drive after putting it off for quite a while. Now it's done : )

Thank you so much for all your support and encouragement whilst i've been learning!

Sorry I haven't been blogging recently. You'd think that now it's October and OFFICIALLY Autumn I'd want to blog all about it all but I have been lacking motivation. I'm feeling a bit better after that mini break so hopefully I'll be back to normal posting.

Happy Monday anyway!
