Colbar, a revisit 7 years later…
I cannot believe that it has been a full seven years since we last visited Colbar. I searched iPhoto and the last I col find was when our BFF Gordy left us to move to Malaysia. Clarky, Woody, Kev, Paul and all the ladies and kids were present and we had a stonking afternoon. But it was before Jude. It really was that long ago which is just crazy. I really cannot quite believe it. So today we change that. We’re off to the Natural History Museum, see that blog on ninakennett.net which is sort of across the road from Colbar. So it made perfect sense to visit. We hit them hard. We were the 2nd arrivals for them today, rocking up at 1130am. And thank goodness for that as it got rammed about midday, like RAMMED!!!

Let’s have brunch and a look at;
