Hello there! It's a grey and rainy day here, so, cup of tea in hand I have several milestones to talk about, as well as a reminder of a blog giveaway and a teacup for Thursday.
Today, January 9th, is Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge's 31st birthday. Happy birthday, Kate! Rumor has it that she will receive an estate chosen for seclusion and privacy for her birthday from Will. And not especially close to London, as they are living at Kensington Palace in London. With her pregnancy, she is going to need some peace and seclusion. Well done Will!
Tomorrow, January 10th, is the 150th birthday of the London Underground, affectionately known as the Tube. A favorite way to travel around London for us with our trust, money saving Oyster card.
One of our favorite routes is to the antique markets at the Angel stop in Camden Town
Other London Underground shots we've taken and a Tube tea towel
So happy birthday to that wonder of Victorian engineering, still going strong after 150 years, an essential of London!

Don't miss the great old travel posters
So for my teacup today, it's a London souvenir mug by Dunoon , England by artist Emma Ball. I LOVE the scenes on this mug!
Isn't it cute? Such wonderful, iconic images! The Guardsman is a Grenadier not a Coldstream guard like my husband was, but I guess you can't have everything!

I am joining the following blogs for some Thursday blog fun. I hope you can visit them as well. Have a cuppa in honor of Kate and the Underground with me!
