Feeling at Ease
08.05.2007 15 °C
A 10quid umbrella that broke after an hour's use, new mobile phones where the sim cards were faulty, a flat we were expecting in a dodgy area, a hint of sore throats and runny noses, funds in a UK bank which we couldn't access...that was yesterday...Today was fab! Everything we set out to do today was achieved, the faulty goods were all replaced by friendly shop staff, the Hong Kong Bank was exceptional, we have credit and debit cards and internet access, we declined the flat (it just didnt feel right) and our sore throats disappeared with the taking of excessive aspirin (which also took away the headaches), and to top it off, we had a great pub lunch off the Oxford Street in a quiet cobbled alleyway for a mere 8 quid total, (yep) plus we are enjoying the vast array of english beers on tap...ahhhh could life be on the up 'n up? We've had blustery wind here today, but temperatures are very warm (esp. in the tube), a mixed bag here weather wise. I've used the buses today, whilst Noel keeps to the underground, I seem to know where I'm going?? We are now off to Fulham to visit our kiwi friend for another round at the local, and packing for Europe where we leave for Pisa to begin the Italian leg of our journey. Hey, good news we are mobile, our number for texting is :0044 7786037010 (hope thats right) and we are relying on internet cafes now for the next leg......so Italia here the kiwis come ....arrivederci!
