I got kicked out of Coutts bank today

Yep, got escorted out. I saw five beautiful Xmas trees in a window and saw it was Coutts bank but it was just a lobby with escalators and a security guard.Not like the actual bank was right there. So walked in about two feet and went to take a picture and a "suit" asked me what I was doing and I said taking a picture and got told no I couldn't this was a private bank. He was really snooty - stupid toff!! At first I was embarassed then upset now I think it's funny. Hey never been kicked out of a bank before - guess they don't want the riff raff in there when the richies come in.

Had a great rest of the day anyway - enjoyed a Xmas concert tonight at St Martins and one by the tree in Trafalgar Square as well. Did a 10km walk from Big Ben to the Tower of London and had a wonderful beef and guiness stew outside at St. Catherines Dock - it was not bad out at all. I took the bus home down Regent and Oxford Sts but was too tired to get off and take pictures. Maybe tomorrow!!!

Me thinks I will type my blogs onto Word and just dump them in here as the wifi here is absolute crap, I am kneeling with my computer on a table. No chair in this room....my knees are killing me so I am a bit crabby But it was a wonderful day.

Staying cool on the prairies and some future plans

My little burst of travel is over and it's back to reality.  Ah well, it was fun while it lasted.  And reality at home really isn't...
