DH and I are just back from seeing the massed bands of HM’s Royal Marines Beat Retreat on Horseguards Parade. (Thank you mum for babysitting.) I loved it but I don’t think DH was so keen. But then again we were raised on events like this during our formative years! Military music stirs the soul.
The London tube strike had allegedly started at 7pm but we were able to catch a westbound train from Knightsbridge just after 9pm, which saved us a lot of hassle.
