  2. we recently had (and I don't use that word lightly) to attend a wedding in London and the mother-of-the-bride phoned to check what we were wearing!
    Hicks-from-the-sticks indeed!

    (situation was not helped when my husband unbuttoned his suit jacket to reveal his trousers were belted with baler twine)

  5. I love London. You'll be fine! If you want to blend in, don't talk to anyone on the tube, and dress in black. Or you could do what we did, and dress in bright colours and talk to everyone who looks nice. We had great fun!

  11. I suppose - if all else fails - you could write your destination on a bit of cardboard and hang it around your neck?

  12. And remember; if anyone asks if you can help with some kittens he's just found in the bushes... it won't mean the same as if asked by someone back home in Trelawnyd.

  18. Watch out John, Londoners are right bastards. I know, being one. We have a little game we play call "Stitch up the bumpkin". The rules are ... well, you'll find out the rules soon enough!

    You must go the show in the Big Top at Oxford Circus. Oh sorry, I thought for a moment I was talking to an American!

  32. From the title I thought this post was going to be a tear jerker!

    Have a good time, I hope you've got rid of the pig aroma before you go.

  33. Yes, and I hope you understand them new-fangled "zebra crossings". You have to stand in the middle of them to hail a taxi.

    They were invented by the supermodel Belisha Beacon btw....

  38. Good luck on your visit to the city!

  39. It should make you feel reeeeally good to realize how many people care about you. That being said, pin your name and address on your jacket, don't get into cars with strange men offering candy, and don't forget a clean change of undies. have fun!

  40. Make sure you pack a change of underwear and wear a clean set underneath - You never now when you are likely to be hit by a No.9 bus and end up in some emergency ward!

  41. Boy, was I glad to have teenagers who could a) read the ticket screens in the Underground, and b) operate the computer to buy our tickets! I suspect the Town Mouse in you will surface at the first whiff of City.

  42. Rather you than me John, turn me round twice and I'm lost - I haven't got a clue.
