Thanks for popping in.
Sorry I’m so late today.
Didn’t get back from London until late,
and by the time you’ve cooked the meal, served it and eaten it,
the time rattles on past.
Bushed now though.
Went to War of the Worlds last night at the Dominion Theatre.
I was enthralled from start to finish –
and it was a good 2 1/2 hours long.
It is what you would call a masterpiece.
The music, the choreography and special effects were epic.
We stayed up in London the night, right in Leicester Square.
If you ever need a hotel in central London, the Premier Inn Leicester Square is just the ticket.
Then this morning, we met the press at a HOCHANDA
It was a very special affair, very well executed,
and I felt quite privileged to be a part of it.
Hayley and Lucy were down for the day too….
It was full on!
I didn’t look up for 4 hours!
Met loads of lovely ladies from various magazines.
Some I knew, some I didn’t.
And before you knew it,
it was time to pack up again.
The venue was spectacular!
We had a little looksie before we departed.
The bowling alley was awesome!
You just can’t believe what is underground!
We were 2 floors below ground level,
and there was this amazingly cool bowling alley !
AND the most deluxe cinema !!!
All underneath the street!
But oh boy!! Did we get soaked on the way outta town!!
We left Ham Yard,
and it was stair rods.
Dave suggested we get the tube to Charing X.
“Noooo,” says I, “Look down there. That’s Nelson that is,
and he’s right next to Charing X.
Let’s make a dash for it.”
So we did. And it was peeing down.
“Hurry up Dave!!”
And he was dutifully trundling behind me with the suitcase.
As we closed in on what I thought was Trafalgar Square,
it slowly dawned on me that the bloke at the top of the pedestal wasn’t who I thought he was.
The conversation went something like this…
“Shit Dave, that’s not Nelson”
“No, it’s not, is it.”
Funny. Not funny. Actually bloody funny.
By the time we found Horatio, we were proper hosed down.
But all in all, a brilliant day.
And a brilliant Dave.
Bye bye London xxxxx
love and hugs,
