London Calling (and Paris is on the other line)!!

Friday, May 21, 2010

I am sitting in a hotel in London right now. Yesterday, I was sitting in my room. My original plan for today was to clean my room and perhaps have dinner with a friend. That quickly changed when my Mom had some last minute "business" pop up and decided she had to go to London. However... she didn't exactly start off by telling me this. She started off by asking me if I would be available this weekend to watch the dogs because she had to go away on business. To make this long story short - I begged my way into this trip and now I have myself an amazing weekend planned out. I will be here in London today, and then tomorrow morning I get to go to Paris to see one of my best friend's and spend the day there. Then in evening, once back in London, one of my other best friend's (would be great if I could keep them where I live, eh?) is meeting me here and she is going to spend the night and we will have all night and most of Sunday to catch up. I haven't seen Lizzie in about two years and I have known her for about 8 years.

I haven't done any flights to Europe in about two years, and I thought things had changed THEN - they are 10 times worse now! It's so funny to me how airlines think that they are doing us favours by making everything bigger and more modern, but really it is just a pain. Not only that, but the people have gotten even ruder! It's completely ridiculous. However, during the flight was just fine! I managed to sleep for most of it, which is a good thing. I had mushroom lasagna that actually tasted pretty good. There were no good movies so I started a new book, and then indulged in relaxing!

Can't wait to get this trip started! Sitting in the bar waiting for my room to be ready has forced me to have two drinks on an empty stomach... not good! Let's get this show on the road!
More to come later on :)
