‘Dreams is full of mystery and magic…Do not try to understand them’ – The BFG.

You may remember a few years ago the mother and I went on a Paddington Bear Trail, discovering a part of London we had barely ever set foot in. This year we went on the BFG Dream Jar Trail in association with Save the Children.

We started our adventure in Trafalgar Square where Team GB’s Dream Jar stood full of medals – and that dream certainly came true!

We galumphed down Whitehall. Past the most majestic guards on horse back.

Arriving in Parliament Square just before the rain.

When I know i’m doing a lot of walking, trainers are a must! Pounding the pavements in heels or pumps is just not an option! I love the longer line of the shirt, it can hide a multitude of sins and the fabric is so soft it’s perfect for a long day exploring.

We carried on our adventure to Buckingham Palace, the queen wasn’t in; probably having tea with the BFG himself but we did find the Countess of Wessex Dream Jar.

Her dream was entitled innocence and it’s all about protecting children from online predators such a beautiful sculpture for such a scary subject.

We finished our adventure with a meal at The Sherlock Holmes pub, after some atrocious service at the beginning the food arrived and we happily tucked into our meals.

Sadly the BFG walk is now over but hopefully there will be something similar next year!
