Hi Angela, loved your report on the Exhibition in your blog. I really must try to visit myself. It looks wonderful.

We did have a lovely day ladies...thanks for taking a look. It's well worth a visit and once you've been (or even before you go) it's worth buying the book as you can't take photos and it's so nice to browse the quilts again and read about them - that's what I did yesterday...as well as stroking the fabric .

I'm glad you had a good time, if you go again, I'd love to come too! I had a nasty experience on the tube too! I said "Excuse me" to the lady next to me when we arrived at my stop, and she totally bit my head off, and said she thought I'd find that lots of people were getting off there. I was mortified. I was only trying to be polite! We don't have trains packed with a gazillion people in Warrington, I'm ignorant of the correct tube etiquette!
The V&A was brilliant though, and more than made up for the tube part. I'm pleased to hear that you treated yourselves in the shop and cafe too. We deserve it!

Ha ha...if I do go again Katy I'll be getting the bus!! We had traveled down 1st class...what a lovely journey...so the tube was a real culture shock! Never again! I'm just sorry that we didn't have longer in there - I would have loved to explore the rest of the museum, so maybe one day I will go back.

Now then, Ladies, when in Rome do as the Romans do is the saying, is it not. I was brought up in London and I'm afraid to say this but you need to go with the flow, ie, do what everyone else does and just 'barge' your way through.

...easier said than done Caz when you're faced with half a dozen burly Mediterranean looking beings who have had rather a lot to drink and are very loud and are standing 1cm away from you and you've got nowhere to run...not a pleasant experience for a mollycoddled 'almost' country girl, I can tell you

Hey mollycoddled 'almost' country girl....
Hahahahaha you are so funny Angela...I agree with Caz, you have to dive in and get your place...no room or time for being polite and I found that difficult too, but you soon learn when you have to get somewhere.
I was shocked the first time I used the Tube - when the train pulled into the station and the crowd pushed off the train through the surge of crowd pushing onto the train....I just stood there while all these people forced their way onto a train that was almost splitting at the seams and curved their backs into the shape of the train so they could get on.....shock horror! I have to say that I waited until there were only a few people on the station then boarded the next train that had a healthier breathing space.....
I was hoping to go next week but with the National Rail strike I'll have to leave it until the next week but will take on board what you said about the book Angela and buy one.

From an ex Londoner....the thing to do is push and shove back, don't speak, just glare!
Don't be polite, no point, you will get odd looks.
Never make yourself stand out, you will end up a target for the thieves etc.
