We're moving to London..
He goes to every tube station!?
We go to London sometimes for parties, and art galleries too. In a bit I'm going to go just for shopping. I feel lame.
no but he wants to the next time we go or as many of them as he can, he gets it from his dad, his dad likes trains. Since last time we went my mister decided he wants to go to everyone and I don't fancy doing that! When I've been to London with college it was kinda crap the whole time I spent going 'London is OUT THERE and we're in here (art galleries)!', I can't possibly afford to go there all the time so when I'm there I always want to go places only London has and be a tourist! I'm going to Camden next time and kings cross station and all the vintage places if I can find it all.
Yeah! And London is the only place in the world with those pieces of art!
I love galleries, I hate Swindon.
I saw a lot of the stuff I saw in the tate before on another trip earlier in the year. Apart from the crack some girl kept going 'it wasn't man made' and i said 'oh so it just amazingly missed all the supports of the building!!!?' I think we would have known if there had been an earthquake in London considering how much the actual earthquake was reported. I'm just not in to art galleries, at the Liverpool tate they had this peice that was dead people water dripping onto a hot plate and we realised we were breathing in dead people water air!!! But in London it was like I was in the capital and yet couldn't actually really enjoy the city properly! I liked the shop in the tate though, I love gift shops.
The best places in London are Camden, Spitalfields, Covent Garden and the Tate Modern. That crack was awesome, I loved how people kept falling into it, it was like four inches wide at most! And not very deep at all. Silly.
And don't worry Roma, I go there all the time purely to shop. Oxford Street is fabulous (MASSIVE Primark!) and yeah, I just recently discovered how good Spitalfields is for vintage and handmade clothes
I love the Tate Modern, we went the year the Weather Project was in the Turbine Hall, it was excellent! and then the year the big cubes"Embankment" were there too, that was an odd one, but cool too
I hate Primark!
I'd only go for American Apparel, which if you got my dress, you will know I adore.
(because I wrote in the letter about American Apparel. Not because it's a leotard.)
Camden is amazing, it's my favorite place in London, although it can get a bit dodgy at night so I wouldn't like to live there.
Tom's been wanting to do that thing with the tube stations for ages too, maybe he can join up with your boyfriend and then we can go do girlie things
I've not been to the Tate yet, but I will.. in a week or so.
yeh yeh I'll teach you how to crochet! and I'll try to impress any scots there by going 'I'm part scottish!!!!!!!!!' Aparently it takes 16 hours to go to every station.
yeh my mate was at a friends of hers in camden and she told me that you get offered drugs by like everyone! (not a particularly good thing in my mind btw). I think I got offered drugs by an undercover police officer once! I wish we'd gone to Camden last time we went to London because we went to Harrods and it was AWFUL I don't know why I thought that was a good idea. We didn't have time to go to Camden after that but didn't have time to do anything else either so just sat in the hotel bar for a while! I love randomness (can you tell!?) and we didn't know there was an aquarium near the london eye so we went after we went on the eye it was ace we saw Dory and Nemo!
aw mate I saw the crack in turbine hall a couple of times and managed to fall down it immediatly. yes everybody converge on Camden the same day I'm doing my stall there. it will work.
I've been wanting to go to the aquarium for ages, it was my mum's favorite place when she lived there as a child. I think your boyfriend and Tom will get along, they both love trains and Apple!
Yeah, we should have loads of craft parties, we can have them in my mew. I really want to join a stitch n bitch in London too!
Rosie, I'll definitely come see your stall. I've always wanted to have a stall in Camden, but I've never had anything to sell, he he.
My sister used to live in Chalk Farm which is five minutes from Camden but REALLY expensive and ridiculously safe.
Yeah we totally need a craft party!
Yes Roma, you "didn't" send me a leotard
are you joking? you make sooo much stuff, people would die for it on a stall( especially a certain envelope related project.. that is never going to leave the top 20, seriously), the trick is to pick the best time of year to do them. last time we did one it was dead, because we totally picked the wrong time to go and didn't make our return. Its more about having some fun and establishing your name cos I DO NOT have the dedication to make my living from it, I'm far tooo lazy lol
BUMP! I had an epiphany! I asked my boyfriend if in a few years time, how he would feel about us moving to London or some where totally random for like a year or so and he said it would be cool. I've got it all planned out lol. I'm sure Sainsbury's (he works as a clerk in a Sainsbury's depot up here) could easily transfer him to a depot down there and I'm sure there are plenty of dogs in London that need grooming so we'll see in a few years time I got quite inspired by you Cat & Tom, since I'm not going to Uni and wouldn't have moved away anyway and my boyfriend has been to Uni but didn't move away either it just seems like something that would be awesome to expierience
p.s. our 2 year anniversary is next month, which is also when the Edinburgh Fringe is on so it would be cool to go up there for a few days even though it will be expensive!
We'd love to know what you think - Leave your reply right away
