My Legs Hurt, And Now My Arms Do Too...
So... after a nice relaxing morning I headed up to London town via Charing Cross. I waited around for a little while before meeting Vy and JP on Regent Street outside the Apple store.
We headed to Le Pain, a nice cafe where we had carrot cake (ok... that was just me) and delicious coffee. We caught up, we commiserated over work and I explained my current obsession with Scientology.
After this we went for a walk... a very, very long walk... up through the back streets to Camden Lock where JP was mistaken for that bloke off The Real Hustle, then we wandered along the canal, past Regents Park, the zoo (where we saw plenty of wild life in the Aviary) and through dark tunnels reminiscent of the canal from IT.
We finally reached Little Venice and then headed to JPs flat in Bayswater for a tea. And it was there that I finally came face to face with JPs infamous cat. She is one bossy cat!!
I headed home via a rather extended tube journey thanks to engineering works on the DLR. Grr...
I arrived home and sat in the living room for about 20 minutes. Jim then informed me that I was a right bloke and didn't pay much attention to things around me. I checked him over for a new haircut or new clothes. Nope, same Jim as when I left. I looked around the room. Nothing out of the ordinary. I begged him to tell me what was different... and that's when he pointed at the blue slot of light down the side of the telly... a Wii!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAY! Love to the Jim!
So even though my legs ached I played some tennis, bowling and boxing before I collapsed here to write my post. Sheesh.. what a busy day.
