3days in London …

… not exactly since most of it was spent in meetings and crazy traffic so it's more like 1 day in London πŸ˜› … I'm slowly learning that all modern cities have insane crazy traffic which makes me grateful for the traffic in Singapore, even at it's worst it's not as crazy as some of these cities I've had to visit.  That's my favourite part of going away – coming home but I digress this post is suppose to be about London.

After the wedding, unlike most brides, I didn't go on a honeymoon but a work trip.  Two days after the wedding to be exact.  Yes, A. is a pretty cool guy πŸ™‚

So after a 12hour flight on a pretty empty place, we arrive in Heathrow on May16, at like 6am in the morning and although, I haven't been back in London for quite a while, the dreary weather was still the same.

Still there is something about London that is quite intriguing, I'm not sure is it because of my love for the authors who wrote about England from Enid Blyton, Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, Shakespeare, William Blake to Dylan Thomas … hang on I don't think Thomans is from England per se but going through the streets of London brought out an intense need to write.  Wonder why being home doesn't do quite the same thing to me?

Just when I thought the dreary rain was going to kill my inspiration, I saw London like I never have before.

Blue beautiful skies, warm weather and smiling faces looking up while they're walking about doing their thing.  Ideas were rushing through my head as I sat through meetings trying my best to look interested but really, all I wanted to do was sit in a park and write.

So in London I finished a beat for an animation short.  The idea has been brewing in my head for a while and I've only written a scene here or there.  Now I have to finish the script and next stop getting it done … hmmm somehow I think that's going to take a lot more than a trip away.

Keeping my fingers cross that I'll find my way back to London again and hopefully with a little more time so that I get to see little Saffy and her Mummy, Nat whom I didn't get a chance to even say hi to.  So, Saff dearie if you're reading this till my next trip to London, HAPPY EARLY BIRTHDAY, Ahoy Matey πŸ™‚ *parrot flies off my shoulder in the direction of London*
