“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

London calling, yes, I was there, too... And after all this, won't you give me a smile? (part four)

It was the boys' stag do tonight, so we had a girls' day/night out with the sisters and the cuzzies: first off, Mum and her sister and Em and I popped into the Tower of London to see the crown jewels.. very sparkly.. magnificent.

da royal sistas

Then it was off (on a red double decker bus) into Picadilly, and we had the most marvellous evening: drinks.. then on to a tapas bar.. then to cocktails and cigars in Soho !!!


my cousin Nyree has got the smoke-blowing thang down to a fine art..
fabulous fun..

and today...
hubby and I are off to *PARIS* !!!!!
we are both breathless: me because for as long as I can remember, I've wanted to go to gay-Paree and eat baguette and fromage underneath La Tour Eiffel; and hubby because it's the final of the FIFA world cup, and he gets to see FRANCE play Italy... IN FRANCE!!!!!

hello girls, england/paris was a whirlwind. so amazing.

flowerpot: i thought of you alot, seeing all the sights, i know why you miss england, there is such a buzz in the summer air over there.

sah: the world cup was amazing, F and i were in a french cafe with 500 other rabid frenchmen, they all cheered at "zizou's" head butt. i went and crashed at our hotel during half time, and F went back for the rest of the game. we were even at the Place de la Concorde for the return of the team.. thousands of french yelling "ALLEZ LES BLEUS" and clapping etc. F took a photo of the hundreds of flags waving !!!!!

suz:you can be sure we did *something wild and unruly* OH YEAH!!! i know why HOGMAN loves travelling. i went into THE perfume shop on the champs elysees that you would LOVE.. it's called sephora, i was wooed by a french man (fraser has called him PIERRE ever since lol) who talked me into getting giorgio armani's latest fragrance "code". m-m-m-m-m xx

mel: yep, baby, those tshirts are "the way forward" (new phrase all the londoners are saying). france was unbelieveable. i saw all the impressionist paintings too.

sweetpea: thanks babe, the last two weeks have been so fabulous.
