Here I am!

So, could I pass by an Internet café and not see how you lot were doing? More importantly, not see if you were missing me? Of course not! So here I am, on a glorious spring afternoon in Kensington High St, and I'm pleased to learn through my LJ that you are missing me a little -- I'm missing you, too. I was just saying to calove the other day, that I was getting worried I was spending too much of my time on LJ these days, but that I couldn't possibly give it up as I've built up too many friendships here now; friendships that are every bit as important to me as my RL ones.

After 3 days in the country with calove, I've come up to The Smoke this morning for the start of my mini tour of England and Scotland. CoRo will play here tonight and tomorrow night, then it's up to Glasgow on Saturday and down to Liverpool on Sunday...and I'm slowly getting excited at the prospect of witnessing all these gigs and more, meeting all the CoRo fans (& appreciative members of the audience) I've been chatting with online over the past months. At the moment, roissy0 is asleep in our room, having flown in from the States earlier this morning. Mustn't forget to swing by the hotel and wake her before going off to meet anonypooh at Earl's Court in a couple of hours' time...

It really is a glorious day today...I think I'll cut this short and go out to enjoy some of it. Who knows when I'll next get the chance?

::bouncing up and down like a great big bouncy thing::

Me too, me too!

And it's true, I already have been having a great time: we had a stroll through the beautiful gardens and grounds at Hever Castle the first day I was here, we spent a fruitless morning at Ikea and made up for it stuffing ourselves with dim sun yesterday, so it's been all kinds of wonderful.

Only thing that's marred it was the news they elected Ratzinger Pope, but I'm blocking that out for now.

*shoos you out the door* get out into that sunshine my dear!

Sounds like you're having a fabulous time. Enjoy your trip. :-)

Thanks, I'm doing my level best!

Say hello to calove and roisy0 for me

Miss you!

Consider your hellos delivered to the designated individuals.

Miss you too.

*waves feebly*

I'm glad you're enjoying yourself. Please come back to us safe and sound this time. ;-)

Spoke too soon -- I seem to have put my back out yesterday trying to get up from a very low castiron garden bench in The Troubadour. I could hardly move this morning...but I think the Ibuprofen is finally kicking in...

::is envious that you got to visit calove::

One day, maybe?

Ouch! I recommend hot baths for aches and pains. Works for me. *pets your achy back*

Oh, yes! She's invited me, Frank, and Bebe, but I don't think she knows how unlikely that is to happen. Got a monster job ahead (of cabin-finishing) this summer.

I'll try my best!

It is so good to hear you all bouncy and happy again. [smiles broadly] You definitely need this time away to just have fun.

I was reading a news story yesterday that made me think of you. I will have to see if I can find the link again and post it. It was about a bunch of Greek and Roman scrolls that have been found and were sitting in a box because they couldn't be translated and now they are using new technologies to read them without destroying them.

Ooh, that sounds interesting! Do try and find the link again, please. I'd love to read that story...

Hi, glad to see you're having a great time. And yes, you are definitely missed here in the land of LJ :) It's always nice to take a break from the daily grind though, so enjoy it while you can! Have fun!
Apr. 22nd, 2005 03:18 am (UTC)
We're missing you, but I'm glad you're having a great time. :)
Apr. 22nd, 2005 10:32 am (UTC)
Thank you! I think I'll be writing up regular reports for the next few days though, since pohewa and anonypooh are as LJ-mad as I am, or seem to be; and don't mind going into the easyInternetcafés with me.
Apr. 22nd, 2005 01:51 pm (UTC)
Cool! I know I'd love to hear all about it. I travel through my LJ friends. :)
