Elaine has always wanted to visit the The Old Operating Theatre, Museum and Herb Garret in Southwark, so yesterday we were up very early and took the high speed Virgin down to London.
The museum is virtually next to the Shard
This is the entrance, then it is up a very narrow spiral staircase.
The old operating theatre.
And operating table.
It is quite a small but very interesting museum, click here for the details.
Elaine was in her element.
The witch herself....and I mean that in the nicest possible way.
One for the ladies bits!!
I especially liked the cervical dilator.....bet most of the ladies didn't!
After we finished our museum visit we met up with Elaine's sister and hubby.
We had a drink in a pub at London Bridge before heading off to Jamie Oliver's restaurant in Covent Garden for a long lunch, Elaine's niece Josie managed to pop in and catch up between gigs.
Many thanks for the lunch guys, we will treat you to the Bolly chippy when you come up north!
Once again a lovely day in London, then it back on board the virgin for the high speed trip back to Macclesfield, a nice bottle of red finished off the day nicely.
We stayed at Elaine's dads for the night in Macc, the dogs had spent the day there, and Elaine,s bro Trevor had given them a couple of good walks during the day.
This morning this fellow was having breakfast on the bird table in the back yard, so is he grey or red?
