Hello London-baby readers,

 Hope you had a great Easter Holiday.  If you do not have school-age children you should know that London will be over-run the next two weeks with families on term break.  Most drop-in playgroups will be closed.  If you head out to the museums this week, get in the queue by 9:45 and be prepared for heaving crowds.
