'Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner...'









...that I love London so.

Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner,
That I think of her,
Wherever I go...

I get a funny feeling inside of me,
When I'm walking up & down.

Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner
That I love London Town
(Gerroff me barrow!)
That I--LOVE--LONDON--TOWN!!!


...but you know something really, really weird??? - we saw more bicycle helmets & hi-vis vests than we've ever seen in Newtown - NUTS!!!!

DON'T DO IT, BRITAIN, DON'T AGREE TO BICYCLE HELMET LAWS!!!

WHATEVER YOU DO, DON'T DO IT!!

("Sad we didn't 'rendez-vous', Mark! - but back in Feb so maybe coffee-date then? - might even qualify for the old 'boris-bikes' if I get my act together pronto!!! - au revoir x")

  1. Sorry to have missed you this time Sue! Next time you're in town for sure let's get coffee and I'll show you where the cool kids (hiv is free!) hang out. Safe travels!

    That is because people are always being told that cycling is dangerous and they feel vulnerable. Such is the power of the fearmongers, sadly these include the Dept. of Transport and the NHS, both should know better.

    Kim, completely agree with you - 'down with all fearmongers'

  4. Of course I meant 'hi vis free', not 'hiv is free', which of course means something terribly different. Eek! Glad you had a great European trip Sue and safe times back in Sydney. Keep posting and keep up the good fight!
