London Mementos

Just before I moved to London, my mum and I went on a little holiday there. (Thank you Dad for the Voyager Miles!) We collected all sorts of bits and pieces as you do on holiday and ever since, they've been sitting in a plastic packet in the cupboard. I usually scrapbook all my trips but I just haven't got around to doing these so I thought I'd at least photograph them and they could live on the blog! This was such a fun trip. If you ever have the opportunity to go travellin' with your mom, I say, do it! It was also a little emotional because I when we arrived, I suddenly got so scared at the thought of starting all over that I proceeded to burst into tears in the first Starbucks we visited, haha! One night, when I was feeling a bit down about it all, my mom did the coolest thing ever - she dragged me off to the Notting Hill Arts Club for a night of indie! The bouncers loved her, gosh. Haha. So there you go, a little trip down memory lane for you. Oh yes, my mom saw George Clooney at the Leatherheads premier but I of course, was too short to see a thing. Check out that headline on the Metro. The Credit Crunch begins!

I love collecting stuff from tips too. Although it usually dies a slow, sad death just lying in one of my drawers. Good idea to digitise the memories...I think I might try that too ;)
