Lets be havin' you
We left the blue skies of Bermuda last night for the greyer ones of London. Greyer but more Christmassy, even though the Bermudians get very into the Christmas spirit. Trees and decorations adorn the streets (see photo top right) but spotting large inflatable snowmen on lawns outside houses was kind of weird.
The flight last night probably rates as one of my worst ever. Kids outnumbered adults two to one and the plane resembled a postnatal ward. I can still hear the crying and wailing. I'm over in Hornchurch at a mates and have had a quiet day ready for a couple of lagers tonight. I did pop out to Roy's Pie & Mash
shop for lunch though. Yummy.
So Christmas has started for us, we are here for 10 days and by my calculation we will sleep in 7 different beds! I'm looking forward to it though and I'm trying to work out if I can get to Norwich on Saturday, I'm not gathering much succour from my comrades however. I'm willing to go it on my own but I have to be back in the west end Saturday night, if I don't get to Carrow Road, then it will be the first trip home mid-season that I've not taken in a game.
Bermuda's useless for shopping unless you are buying a watch, sand in a bottle or a bottle of rum, so I plan a bit of shopping in town although the internet has been a godsend this time around. I did pop into Woolworths
today, pick n' mix 20% off? Very sad.
