Last week I went to Scotland for the weekend with Mark, but today I’m heading to London with Ozzy. Ozzy can’t be left out, so I needed to go with him as well. So I go twice 🙂 (well 3, I also went to Amsterdam, but that was announced later).
Aoife, David, Ozzy and I are all staying at the same hotel. The Premier Inn very close to the venue and the After party. SWEET!
Mike and Dave “Murkage” are having a club night “Tonga” in London. They will organize this every month. Saturday the 4th of October 2014 will be the 1st one. This is going to be a big reunion of Streets heads. Shep and Jamie are coming to the gig. Also Emma J. and Emma P.Dave is coming as well. And I will be meeting up with Aoife & David from Ireland. Chris and James will be there too. I know them through Twitter.
My friend Ozzy & I Woke up early to go to the airport. Our plane was supposed to leave at 9:05, but it all took the airport crew a bit longer so it was a little later, Thankfully the flight didn’t take too long.
We arrived very early at Airways hotel Victoria, it was 10.30 and we couldn’t check in until 1.30, Time for breakfast. we were staying in the area of Buckingham palace, so also the prices in the shops/restaurants were for people who could afford that. We had breakfast in a pub for 25 pounds. Not going to do this tomorrow.
When we finished we went to Victoria Station. Laurence would arrive soon. We went to do some window shopping. i didn’t want to spend any money, as I didn’t have much. and breakfast was way more then i could afford. I needed all the money I had for The Streets merchandise.
I had the flight at 9.40 from Amsterdam, well it was 50 minutes delayed, but finally at about 11 I arrived in Birmingham.
The scary thing is, I have thought for months that I would arrive at 11, while on my boarding pass it said 10am. And in the end it was 11 anyway. When I told Burke, he wanted to know the winning numbers for the lottery haha
At 8.30 I phoned the room of Emma and Emma, I asked them if its ok if we leave at 10 in the morning, cos we had to drop everybody off at a different hotel. They thought that that was fine.
There was 1 Problem, Shep & Jamie were walking around the hotel… and will be back at 11…. hmm…. I asked Emma J. to text them and let them know, and they were up for it…. My own phone was broken so I had a phone from Tmobile I could borrow, but it didn’t work over here. Shep and Jamie came back on time, so at 10 am we were on our way to San Fransisco. Our last journey together.
At 9 in the morning, we checked out and put our luggage in the van, also Jamie‘s and Shep‘s…. They didn’t travel with us, they had a plane to catch. 7 hours drive to go…. Poor Ozzy was driving a very long boring trip. And the ladies (all 3 of us) slept the whole trip)
