BB bus

Hello lovelies, 

I've got a couple of posts floating round in my head but thought this was a nice one to write while battling some nasty side effects of my new pain killers, so here we go. 

Last week was my birthday (big 30 is next year, eek!) and I wasn't really sure what I wanted to do for it. I've been struggling energy wise with my air boot and crutches and wasn't really sure if I even wanted to do anything. Luckily I have good people around me to sort me out! 
My friend Claire and I met up the week before, not specifically for my birthday but I'm counting it anyway. We went to Balans in Soho for drinks, and lunch and it was completely delicious. A really lovely place and everything was excellent. I would highly recommend! We then went on to the cinema, which I never really do but definitely need to start going to more. In all a lovely day with fabulous company. 

My friend Pippa suggested we book up to do something. I am a huge afternoon tea fan and had been wanting to try this particular one for ages. The BB's bakery is located in Covent Garden but they also offer an amazing afternoon tea tour on a London bus! The idea is simple but brilliant, you are served afternoon tea on specialist converted Routemaster bus while being driven round London on a 90 minute tour. 

It was a gorgeous sunny day which made it even nicer. We were picked up just off of Trafalgar Square and welcomed aboard the bus (how awesome is this bus?!)

The staff, Bastien and Jean-Philippe, were amazing, so friendly and on their game. As you know I am now gluten free as much as possible and this has been a bit disappointing on other teas so I was a bit worried. I needn't have been, I didn't feel in anyway left out in what I had, as soon as I boarded they confirmed I was gluten free and on being seated went through exactly what I could eat. I felt confident because they were so in control. It was also really easy to book online and choose your dietary requirements without it being a big deal. Excellent!

We were served tea, coffee or hot chocolate in travel mugs to avoid spills and began the tour taking in Big Ben, the London Eye, London parks, and lots of landmarks. The food was delicious, they offer to give you a doggy bag to take away at the end of the tour...  But we are everything so it wasn't necessary! Nothing was too sweet or stodgy, the savouries were lovely really tasty, and the patisserie divine. We were also served scones with individual cream and jam about halfway through. 

We were also give a bottle of orange juice and offered water too which was a nice touch. We ate on mismatched China plates but everything else was personalised with the BB's distinctive style which I enjoyed as it tied everything together. 

We also had a little book on our table which told you about the bakery, the tour route and a bit of information about the landmarks. It was seriously a really relaxed, enjoyable day and I loved it even more than I thought I would. I also managed to get some decent photos as we went round.

would highly recommend it as a treat and am definitely going to go and visit the bakery as well as book in for the special tour of the Christmas lights, literally all my Christmasses come at once!!! 

I think I'll leave it there for today and tell you about my actual birthday in another blog. 

Bye for now! 


  1. Hello am Mary Coolman Am giving this testimony because am so happy, I want to thank Dr OGUNDU for the great thing he has done in my life, he brought happiness to my life! A very big problem occurred in my Marriage seven months ago, between me and my husband so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce. He said that he never wanted to stay with me again, and that he didn't love me anymore. So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back, after much begging, but all to no avail. And he confirmed it that he has made his decision, and he never wanted to see me again. So one faithful evening, as i was coming back from work, i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained everything to him, so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back, is to visit a spell caster, because it has really worked for him too. So i never believed in spell, but i had no other choice, than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster. drogunduspellcaster@gmail.com So the next morning, i sent a mail to the address he gave to me, and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day. What an amazing statement!! I never believed, so he spoke with me, and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, so surprisingly, my husband called me to inform me that he was coming back. So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day, with lots of love and joy, and he apologized for his mistake, and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it was before, by the help of a spell caster. So, i will advise you out there if you have any problem contact Dr OGUNDU, i give you 100% guarantee that he will help you. Email Him drogunduspellcaster@gmail.com
