Going through Los Angeles is interesting and frightening on many levels, and checking all your bags in and out again, getting finger printed and your photo taken, you just feel happy to get out the other side without being imprisoned.
Bedraggled (not sure if its a word, but i like it), bewildered (definitely a word), and feeling very slightly tired we arrive in Heathrow, what a wonderful place
On the Thursday we managed to make the trip to south london and see my cousins and aunt and uncle, who managed to be put on a good spead for us, with very little notice, and not telling them that Kate was coming. Paul (previosly Smoke Dog), and his girl friend Jess got pregnant just after i left, and so we have the black haired and hungary Elle to sit with and pull stupid faces at, althogh i refered to her as it, and managed to hold her for around just 2 seconds.
After a couple of days of being wined and dined by Kate's family, and doing the odd bit of paint and decorating (must fund the ludicrous prices in this country somehow), we head over to colin and emseys (soon to be married), pre-stag do, where we meet up with old friends and my long missed brother.
Waking early on the sat, me and my bro are first in the greasy spoon around the corner, and are pottering around and excited long before the boys start to arrive. Kate has of course legged it home the night before. Tom (best man) is organising, and the rest of us let him get on with it. We spend a few hours paintballing (my first time), and i'm certain i was the best, especially since no-one else can comment, although i took a hell of a lot of head shots, blond hair is not much use in combat
The night consisted of home made pizza, followed by swanky bar, champagne, followed by a bit of funky house down the kings cross, where colin almost didn't even get in. nothing to serious or embarrassing for the night, plain, clean, fun, and a hell of a hangover, which wasn't helped by the flat tire that we acquired in toms car on the way home the next day.
good to see everyone ... ish. Having been rushing around, so pod's are on the back burner.
