i was in london this weekend to attend a meeting and to see some old faces which i havent seen in ages so that was nice, one particular face (my commander in chief) had asked me to bring her a cd of the turkish trip pictures, so i was like yeh no problem, will do and bless her she even sent me a text the night before to remind me, to which i replied its sorted, ive put them on a cd, so that was fine or so i thought.

so i make my way to london land (seriously you londininas how do you live in london its mad) and the journey itself needs a seperate blog, which i will do another time, it involves a certain nm, ad and maimoona. anyway so i get to london on friday and eat out at the famouse edgware road being waited upon by a depressed waitor who didnt know that it takes less muscles to smile than to frown, i was gonna give him my condolences but decided not to he probably would have stuffed a napkin up my nose or something. so we ate and catched up with the londininas and then headed to TH home,bless her, thank you TH for your hospitality forgot to thank you.

next day made my way to the meeting, brought the cd with pic and handed it over to my commander in chief, and bless her she was excited as it had taken me since april to hand it over to her, so she goes to her computer and puts it in and we patiently await for it to load, and finnaly when it was ready it turns out that i hade burnt 1 picture out of hundreds, one picture?? lol, after aplogising like ten times i promised i would get them ready for her, so until then i have put some up for you on this blog to check out, enjoy and again my apologies....
