Welcome to London, the sun was shining (sort of) and Aldo was waiting for me dressed up in a lovely summer outfit! It was about 20 degrees and I questioned her whether it was too cold for what she was wearing. Apparently not, this was one of the best days of the summer, the following 2 weeks would prove her right! My last minute purchase of a waterproof jacket in Melbourne before I left was by far the best decision I made because I wore it basically every day!
It was amazing to see Ali and after 2 years nothing had changed, it was easy and fun! The moment I walked in the door Ali produced the dress I would be wearing for the 70’s disco house party we were going to that night. I was hesitant at first but Ali assured me it was fine to wear these clothes out in London because apparently anything goes! In the end it was a great night out and I loved seeing what Aldo’s life has been like over the last 2 years. As always you realise what a small world it is, at the party I met a girl that went to Hilda’s 2 years above us who knew Penny and Nick, and also a couple who did physio with Billy and through this knows Nat and TJ!
I had an amazing week in London. I felt much more at home here then I did in Paris, this place was for me! Concord the metro, Camden and Columbia markets, free walking tour was amazing, went to West end show and saw Billy Elliott with Tashi and her friends, high tea at sketch, the usual sites (including the Olympic rings on tour bridge), a massive day walking (from London bridge to Westminster, to Harrods, to Greens park) and a whole lobster just to myself at Lobster and Burger!!
I will be going back!
