One of my favourite pastimes!...

Hey y’all!!
So I guess you can call this entry ‘The LDN Edition’ as I spent the most part of last week back home in LDN…business & a lil pleasure!

As I mentioned in my last entry, I definitely had my reservations about going back to LDN during the week directly following the riots that were in full effect.
It was definitely fair to say that the tension could be felt from boarding the plane, right through to landing & whilst in the Customs Hall at the airport…I think the shock of what had happened/was still happening across the UK was only just beginning to really sink in. Madness..
