A Wellcome back to Bluebird

Following an email invitation to visit the Wellcome Collection’s latest exhibition (why do I open them?) I suggested that the subject material might be of interest to Milly and her upcoming Psychology A Levels. As apparently everything on the invite was of interest, plans were made to visit the collection in the¬†Euston Road. I have not been there before, despite a few near misses, and was hugely impressed with the exhibitions, facilities and atmosphere of the building. Certainly worth a visit if you haven’t been. Following a very brief stop at the latest Saatchi exhibition (Patek Philippe watches) which we continued down the King’s Road to Bluebird and a brief cycle round the opulent¬†and surprisingly quiet streets of Chelsea. One very pleasant interlude was meeting cousin Jan on her way to a lecture quite by chance outside the Wellcome building – now what are the chances of that?

The reason for the visit.

BBC, Boris and Bluebird

A long overdue ‘dad day out’ with Livi took in a tour of the BBC, an Eenin Stannit offer at Bluebird and a whistle-stop tour of the Kings Road on Boris bikes. Great to look around the beeb, with time spent by the newsdesk, the One Show (never watched it), and the Radio Theatre. Also an opportunity to star in a radio play, the best that day (apparently) – well, we were the first tour. Bus and walk to the evergreen Bluebird and then 30 minutes playing on bikes with a favourite selfie.
