I was only away for two days, and it feels like a year!
London was fantastic, I only wish we'd been able to stay a few more days to really enjoy it! The reason for the trip was to see a charity gig by Russell Howard (British comedian) because I love him, and it was a great excuse to go to London! It kind of turned out a bit weirder than I was expecting though, because it was not just a Russell Howard gig. There was an enormous buzz in the theatre, and everyone seemed to be under the same impression that we would get an hour or two of his awesome stand-up routine. Ha. There were four other comedians on the bill, who each performed a twenty minute set, before Russell Howard appeared, and his set was also only twenty minutes long!
All in all, the show was great, BUT I didn't buy the tickets to see a bunch of other comedians, so it was kind of disappointing that we didn't get to see more of the person we paid to see. :(
Yesterday, we spent the day mostly in Covent Garden. It is absolutely made of awesome! It's full of quirky little shops and cafes, and I discovered the coolest shop EVER! Collectif is full of vintage clothing, mostly from the 50s era. It's like stepping into a time machine! The best thing about it is that the prices are incredible. I was expecting every item to be over the £100 mark, but mostly they were around £50, and some were even less. I have to go back there one day and have a longer look around!
So, now I am home again and it's back to work! I suspect that I will be spending most of the week writing articles instead of working on my WIP, but that's okay. A break will probably be a good thing. My bank balance is still screaming from my two days in London, so earning money is definitely what I need to do at the moment!
Hope you are all having a great week so far!
