Some things only happen in London

Its been a long time since I updated and much as I’m tempted to blame ‘life’ for getting in the way, its just my own laziness. Add to that the procrastination in checking my Reader … every time I see the 10,000 + unread posts, I just quickly look away and click in the general direction of the little red cross.

London has been good generally. Nowhere else will you meet a guy going somewhere on foot, looking in at every street corner and then coming up to you and asking, ‘Hey, am I somewhere near Heathrow? Can you guide me there?’

The thing is… he wasn’t drunk. We were on foot. And we are a 20 minute DRIVE from Heathrow. I went into the typical sarcastic Londoner mode and politely pointed at an aircraft overhead and said ‘Follow the planes’

I blame the PMS. No, really.

    I have been following your blog for a long time primarily because I got married to someone in UK and now finally here. First, I wasn’t able to relate to your experiences but now I totally do!

    You haven’t updated in a long time. Also, would love to meet you.

    Please start writing again… I totally mean it when I say that I really miss reading your blog. You were part of my daily dose of reading and now things just don’t feel right. ;-)
