There’s no place like London


As you’re reading this I’m probably sat in a very full van, departing London and on my way to my new home! The move day is finally here and I’m full of nervous excitement!

Over the last few weeks, I’ve really tried to make the most of being in central London, and if you read my blog regularly you’ll know that I’ve had lots of fun in doing so! And whilst I’ve been drinking amazing cocktails, eating lush food, visiting museums and watching theatre, I’ve been realising just how much I’m going to miss what was my home for twelve years.

Still, I’m not going to be very far away and I know I’ll visit often. But I thought I’d share with you some of the things I’ll miss most about living in London……

The bagpipe player on Tower Hill
Giving directions to tourists
The smell when it rains
Visitors getting excited to see the sights
Sitting in the front seats on the top deck of a route master
Sitting in the front seats on the DLR and feeling like you’re on a monorail
The awesome places to eat and drink
West end shows
The galleries and museums
The history
The river
The cranes
The shopping (and late opening!)
The architecture
The photo opportunities
There’s always something to do
Chatting on the tube to strangers
Rides in Hackney Cabs
Pearly Kings and Queens
Chelsea Pensioners
Finding cool street names like Poultry, French Ordinary Court, Savage Gardens and Love Lane
Markets, car boots and fairs

And as this week is going to get more and more hectic as I try to settle us into our new home, I’ve called upon some of my favourite blogging friends to provide guest posts to keep you entertained. Tomorrow, we will have How To Tuesday hosted by the wonderful Vixie of Matin Lapin…..on Wednesday, the darling Claire of Country Mouse Claire will be sharing her Wednesday Wants….and on Thursday we will find out about what to do in London this weekend as the brilliant Siobhan of Siobhan Claude Van Damme takes over Something for the Weekend.

Hopefully, by the weekend, I’ll have wifi again, and enough time to give you an update on how it all went!

Until then though…..

  1. What a sweet love letter to the city. On a personal note, experiencing many of those with you have been highlights of my visits. I can’t wait to see what adventures we’ll have together in the countryside. x
