Hi there everyone remember me, Leroy, I think I have been getting more use out of Kolo's blog than he has lately. But he is planning a great entry soon so hang on in there genisuses never work quickly!
Anyway as many of you know I live on a little island off the south coast of England, but really I am a Londoner! I need to point out here that I am not a cockney, those people are born within the sound of Bow bells, I was born within the sound of cheering at Highbury (Arsenal's old ground) and yes I am old enough to remember when they used to cheer there! So I guess that makes me an Arsenal boy. I am from north London but any visit to London is a good thing to me and this was special cos I met a nice person. Read on and you will see.
We started by going over to Portsmouth on the ferry so we could get the train to London. I had my own seat on the ferry.
If I stood on tip toe I could just see out of the window. While we were waiting for the ferry to leave we could see our town.
When we got to Portsmouth we got on the train. I had my own seat again.
I could see out of the window from the train too and I could see another train waiting to leave like we were.
I was very excited to get going.
We went very fast past trees and then past fields.
It reminded me how lovely our countryside is this is Hampshire which is very nice we saw lots of animals in fields too, horses, cows, donkeys and even lamas!
When I got to London I met the person who I was telling you about this is Wendy, you may know her cos she is @dogstoyevsky (Lexie's) mum. Isn't she pretty.
We went to the south bank (of the River Thames) and had lunch I had a chocolate brownie (Wendy got it for herself but well you know me I used my charm and here I am eating it! Heee heee sorry Wendy I'll buy you one of your own next time.
After lunch we walked along the river a bit. This brought back old memories for me I looked across the river and saws some buildings that I remember well in the city of London. If you look you can see St Paul's cathedral, new gerkin building and the London Stock Exchange building.
Oh but you can see the buildings but not me, well here is one with me in it!
The island where we live is lovely but I do miss London, who wouldn't its a lovely city and is my home town.
Eventually we had to go home. As I couldn't get a picture of me with the London Eye (because it is so big and I am so small), I tried to take one from our train at Waterloo, there was a train in the way but you can see it above the train and you can see the Shell Building on the south bank as well.
We didn't gon on the London Eye cos it moves slowly and I'm a boy that gets impatient and likes to be quick but we had a great time in London and I hope I will be going there again soon. Maybe even to go to see Arsenal again!
I just wanted to say thank you to Wendy for a lovely day out, it was so nice to meet you and sorry I ate your chocolate brownie, but it was very nice!
