Now, I have to admit I have mixed feelings about London, England. Some of my experiences of that capital city have been so stressful. My first time there I was a nervous 23 year old travelling over on my own going for a job interview. Ryanair was a tiny fledgling loss-making airline back then flying out of Waterford. A better job offer from Dublin meant I never did emigrate….but London for me then became associated with training courses and business trips….lots of running through Heathrow on a Friday night to catch the last flight home….or trying to make connecting flights with minutes to spare. Of course, I subsequently had much happier trips over there; shopping trips with my mam, Peggy…..and girlie weekends away with friends. But this blog post is about a more recent enjoyable trip I had to London with Charlie in 2015 and what we got to see.
Books 41 to 48
So, in my Bucket List quest to read at least 80 books, this is my 6th list of 8 books (actually 10 this time as the first is a trilogy!) that I've held onto. As explained in my blogs previously, my lists are an eclectic mix of book types. Hopefully you'll see something that you might read on a rainy day. (See Blog 16, Blog 22, Blog 32, Blog 38 and Blog 48 for the other book-related blogs).
