Love from London

May 7, 2009

London Kiss

Things I like about being in London:

– wearing mini skirts (no need to elaborate).

– going to the pub

– Topshop

– cab drivers who actually know where they are going

– bruised skies

– potted shrimps

 

Things I don’t like about being in London:

– the ghastly Siberian weather

– cab drivers who actually know where they are going and indeed they should, with the kind of money they charge

– having to do everything yourself – what do you mean, you can’t send someone?

– Heathrow

    Ah ah: “what do you mean, you can’t send someone ?”
    Faut dire qu’ici on se déforme. Il n’y a pas très longtemps, je discute avec une amie indienne des soucis de santé de mon père, qui s’est fracuré la hanche, ne peut plus bouger, des problèmes que ça pose à ma mère… “Why don’t you bring back an Indian maid for her ?” Mes parents, dans un petit village français, sans un mot d’anglais … et avec une bonne indienne, vous imaginez le scandale au village ? Esclavage en province etc… J’ai essayé de lui expliquer, elle n’a jamais compris, alors j’ai fini par dire: “Yes you’re right Sonal (name changed😉 I’ll think about it, thanks a lot for the idea”

    J’ai hâte de lire de nouveaux post, reviens vite pour me faire un peu rigoler. Tu parleras de la nourriture U.K ? Tiens au passage, en bijoux, j’adore Alex Monroe.

    @ boubou & YVR : glad to see everyone hates Heathrow! Wretched airport…

    @ Bombay Magic: je vois tellement ce que tu veux dire!! ca fait deux semaines que je fais mes lessives et franchement, la vie sans aide, c’est pas facile… Mais alors la, la bonne indienne au village c’est juste too much!

    @ rosemary: back on the blog on monday…

    Do you know the origins of the above image of the couple kissing on the number 6 bus by any chance? I had a tshirt over 20 years ago with this ismage and was trying to track it down as I love it!
