Exciting two days in London

24 Jun

Finally arrived in Kent last Wednesday night. Next day we went on health duty – blood test, collecting drugs and then to Pembury for an X-ray. Then into Maidstone for the annual haircut! Then Trish departed northwards for Manchester and I headed to London.

The reason for my visit to London was to attend my client’s 40th anniversary celebrations. I’ve been working with the International Association of Bookkeepers for several years now, as their marketing consultant.

The celebrations started on Thursday afternoon with a reception at the Houses of Parliament to present awards to the best Centres running IAB courses. This was followed by dinner for all the international guests on a Thames boat.

I stayed at the Park Plaza County Hall hotel. My room was big – essentially two rooms for bed and for sitting connected by a kitchen with separate shower cubicle and bathroom!
