Alright? Interesting local greeting, isnt it? lol

How has everyone been? Hope all has been sane and civil in my absence. I have been in touch with some of you, but I hope that I wasnt missed 2 much. haha

London........ gr8 place..... fantastic weather.... it isnt 2 cold for me at all.... tis perfect really. Finallt saw the city today, which was fantastic.... was a bit gob smacked when I was stood 10 metres away from Big Ben.... fantastic building and was especially gr8 2 hear it chime.



Been here a week now and am slowly settling into my flat and am slowly building a circle of good friends here.

A special thank u 2 Joe, JD, Shiva, Kristy, Lillygirl, TS, CF, HeartofGold and Jellybean for making my move that much easier by offering good advice and support. Thank u!

Well I am back now and I have heard about the crazy weather u lot have been having back in Dubai.... fantastic.... enjoy it... i hear u have some rain forecast for later this week. I am enjoying glorious sunshine here in London. haha

Lots of new members on here aswell..... welcome to all of u!

let me c....... this rectangular room measures about... errrrrr........ 3m by 4m..... not the largest room in the world, but it will have to do....... and the "ensuite" is one corner of the room that as been cordoned off...... thats not too shabby either, its decent.... just a tad on the small side. its 90 pounds a week, so i cant complain.
