Great day today, despite it being a bit pricey.

I began at the Science Museum, seeing and being disappointed by the Alan Turing exhibition. I would have thought they could give us more information about his life, especially before Bletchley. He was a fascinating person who deserved a better exhibition.

I wandered around the Science Museum and personally enjoyed the history of medicine most. As with Duxford, I'm not mad on planes and other vehicles so that didn't really grab me. The Space gallery was good though.

I stopped in at several bookshops and managed to add to my Alison Weir collection, as well as picking up a book on Austrian history. I also went to Forbidden Planet and bought the following:

I also stopped in at a post office and posted it home.

After my shopping, I met up with [livejournal.com profile] shining_moment for a lovely Italian lunch and a fantastic chat. This gave me a chance to boast about said bathrobe and to exchange the latest news.

Having farewelled Clare, I went to another bookshop, Stanford's, and spent - nothing. Not a red penny. (Shocking, huh?) I meandered along second-hand bookshops on Charing Cross Road and spent - nothing. Yes, you may pick yourself up off the floor now. Never fear, though, I do have several more bookshops in mind...
