London. Been here since Thursday and I think I've just managed to get over the jet lag. It was truly horrible. I completely lost my appetite and couldn't sleep and just generally felt crap. Last night armed with some serious ear plugs and lots of herbal sleeping pills I managed to have a full decent nights sleep. I feel so much better!|
Woke up early today and ended up having a great day. Got the tube to Covent Garden but was too early for all the shops... (what's with shops opening at 12 on sundays?) so walked around then headed to trafalgar square and ended up in st james gardens and laughed at the pommies sunbaking in a park (seriously there were deck chairs and swimming costumes). Then I went to Tate Modern... fuck it was great. I just realised that I've never been to a gallery by myslef before, so much better than doing it with others. You can go at your own pace.
Then this afternoon I went to Camden markets to meet Marty. Too much to take in and we were chatting the whole time so will have to go back to shop when I have more time. We then had a Pimms at a cool cool cool pub where they have All Tomorrow's parties nights (when we were there they played simon and garfunkel and elliott smith on the stereo!). Then Marty and I got the bus to Oxford st to change some stuff in Topshop for him and just have a look around. I'm buggered but had a great day. Best day so far.
Tomorrow I'm going to stay with Rich and Becky (cousin and his wife) and hopefully watch the first Australia world cup match somewhere.
I'll post more soon. Miss Australia already!
