Tikki patchwork and Covent garden

Started the morning with the charger for the iPod going off like a fire alarm. Woke us and possibly the neighbors up. I pulled it from the wall and the noise stopped, so I assume it overheated. After breakfast we headed for the underground to get an extension to go to kew to a quilt shop. Ticket man said no just take the bus - it is free. Found a pattern for a Brit flag pillow and some beautiful rooster material. Charged it. On the way back we stopped at the local shopping center and browsed the shops. Found an airline pillow for a pound at Poundland.
In the afternoon we discovered Covent Garden. Shops, food stalls, market stalls etc what fun!
We roamed round and round and in between until we were tired and went back to the hotel to pack. After we packed we went back to Covent Garden to The Nags Head for dinner - bangers and mash for me and steak pie for Peggy and of course beer. Finishing the night with this blog and then a little more sightseeing tomorrow and off to gatwick. Will blog again tomorrow night.
