I went to London on Wednesday for work. The place I was going was right next to St James’s Park (I didn’t realise how close this was to Buckingham Palace until I got there). I’ve not been to London many times, so when I got there I decided that after I had finished work, I would walk along and take some pics. Unfortunately when I got out it was raining and I hadn’t taken my umbrella, so it was a quick walk to Picadilly Circus to get out of the rain.
I had a bit of fun getting home – there was a fire south of Doncaster so all the East Coast trains were cancelled. Just as I was about to walk from Kings Cross to St Pancras to get the train to Sheffield instead, a train to Skipton (via Leeds) popped up on the board, so I went for that one. I’m not sure if many people noticed that it was going though Leeds because the train was deserted! It was a very slow journey because of congestion on the line, so I had time to watch Black Swan, and then a lot of How I Met Your Mother DVD extras. These two DVDs had an iPad/iPhone/other media device version, which meant that I didn’t have to take my laptop with me! I hope more DVDs start doing this…
I took a few pictures while I was in London (iPhone pics so not the best quality):
If you don’t understand the title of the post (and there is probably only one person I know that does), it’s from this old TV advert:
