On Friday night Michael, one of my flatmates, was having some leaving drinks. He is going to Egypt and Jordan for three weeks and then coming back to London for a couple of days before heading back to Melbourne to be a grown up.
Me and some of my other flatmates headed into town to meet up with him. Unfortunately, his tube got delayed so we went to check out the Covent Garden walkie instead and had a few drinks there without him but, managed to catch up with him on the tube ride home.

Today I decided to get my unemployed arse off the couch and spend some money I didn't really have on a day trip to Windsor. I figure that if I have to go home I might as well fill in my days of unemployment with enjoying the sites and places England has to offer, so I headed down to Waterloo and brought my ticket - at £9 return I was pleasantly surprised and I brought my ticket to the castle from there as well so saved another few pounds yah.

1 - Transport for London has banned drinking on any public transport; and
So as the tube was closed we decided to walk to the next station - Bayswater. What we didn't know is that we had an entourage following us because we had a map.
At Bayswater I ran into an old friend and had a quick catch up before taking the tube to the next station.
Upon walking out of Notting Hill Gate station we were swarmed in kiwis. They were just everywhere and so were television cameras and coppers trying to keep the flow going. One cop in particular was quite funny telling us that we were behind, we should be at the next pub already and to hurry on up!
We decided to walk to High Street Kensington but in all the commotion, toilet breaks, drink stops and photo op's seemed to have missed it and ended up at Gloucester Road.
Stop 8 - Victoria
Stop 9 and 10 - St James Park and Westminster
After saying goodbye we headed towards Westminster because at 4pm everyone meets there to see the Haka. Along the way we: - had photos, lost people, got lost, went to toilet in random pubs, left things behind and had to go back, etc, etc so therefore we missed St James Park but made it to Westminster, and the oh so muddy common, to see, well for me, absolutely nothing as the Haka didn't go on for long and I was too short anyway.
Had such a good day, can't say we actually went into any pubs on the way though!
Sex is on fire
As per usual guys - heaps more pictures in the photo gallery!
Sorry about the formatting, its being spaz and soooo annoying.

London, as well as lots of other countries is suffering the effects of going into recession. People are losing their jobs, hundreds by the day and because of that the people that do have them are not letting go. Its quite a depressing time for lots of people and it means that work is scarce.
