londondude 's Thoughts:

Hey there ladies and gents, fashionistas and trend setting chicos!

I must say I missed you all a lot, and enjoyed posting this. It has been a rather eventful period since my last post. To recap, in brief, this has happened -

Got a new job, working for the Fire Brigade (No, not a firefighter, yellow boots aren’t exactly in vogue right now…) More of a support role, running reports and other deeply fascinating things involving statistics for the area commanders.
Libya has undergone a civil war, and the guy with the worlds daftest thin mustache, Gaddafi, was killed. Presumably by some disgruntled mob.
London experienced some rather horrible riots, led by some rather horrible people, following the shooting by police of a rather horrible person.
But, lets not dwell on current affairs, both foreign and domestic. No. What I want to talk about is my fondness for London, and my passion for that timelessly chic accessory, the bow tie.

Me and my partner decided to venture into South-bank for a day of fun, frolics and culture. Knowing the weather in true British style, was going to probably rain later in the afternoon, we left the house rather early yesterday morning. We both decided on having a key color of red in our outfits, she optioned for a gorgeous red skirt, and I went for a red bow tie and matching red shoes. I kind of fussed around a bit with the choice of jumper, and originally I settled on a dark tone, black one. Minutes later, I kinda figured, nope, I want to add some more color so I went with this purple toned jumper. Which, although isn’t matched with the outfit per se, I felt satisfied that it kind of works. I wonder what your thoughts are on that…?

Our day started off really well, with some early morning sunshine as we walked around Southbank. There was a nice selection of market stalls and stands selling a huge variety of delicacies and hot food. Deciding it was time to rest our feet and wet our whistles, we collapsed inside a nice restaurant that specializes in Tapas and Cocktails. We enjoyed both of those options : ). The long Island Iced Tea cocktail was splendid!

Later, we spent a few hours in the British Museum which has an amazingly massive collection of, well, everything really! Such an incredible place, I especially enjoyed the displays of Baroque items, such as their brooches and clocks. The detail of them was just beautiful, and generally a very fascinating period in history. Moving on from these exhibits, there was the Egyptian section. This had some rather mummified people in it, and felt pretty odd looking at them. As we left the museum, the heavens decided to open, and a large amount of water began falling from the sky. We opened up our brollies and made haste to the bus stop, and planned on stopping at another Restaurant, where I could sit down, dry off a bit, and sip on a gloriously refreshing glass of Peroni.


Thanks for reading, and I hope to enjoy some of your comments shortly. I would like to shout out to my dear friend 4everUSMC, whose recent messages prompted me in returning. And may I conclude on this note. Its great to be back, and I will certainly be posting more frequently. I already have ideas in mind for my next post….

Lots of love guys,

Rob x

Dearest, dearest London...Londy-Day!>Just read your post, and my new career with one of the largest company of the "U.S. fortune 500 list" is b. hell in London's Words. There are lots of liaison type dealios...and, I must say...your lady Cin has to wear uniforms, however a touch of deep red piping and in your case, a signature bow-tie makes the job go round with a touch of "je ne sais quoi" T.Y.
