Well I won't say I never expected it but not on such a big scale. Since the bombings last Thursday (7-7-05) I've been glued to the TV to see all the recovery work and to hear how the investigation is coming along. Each day a new bit of info is added to the puzzle and I don't think it will be too long before someone is caught for this. When you hear peoples stories and see that they're just normal people going about their everyday business you can't help but feel sorry for them and their families. And to think that 24 hours earlier London was celebrating winning the 2012 Olympics.
My daughter refuses to go to school by bus anymore and I can't say I blame her so I guess I'll have to take her from now on unless this is definitely sorted and someone is caught.
My eldest son and my daughter are now in San Diego, USA with their mother for the next five weeks so it's just me, my second son and our potty Jack Russell, Dude here till they return.
The day of the bombs was really busy workwise as people had no other option but to catch a cab home. These last two nights have been really quiet, well Friday more then Saturday and there's no prizes for guessing the topic of conversation amongst most people.
I'm trying to do as much work as possible on ComCab as it's better quality work and much safer. The average job goes about £20+.
There's lots of road closures around town at the moment. Some due to the bombs and some due to the VE Day celebrations so it's quite awkward to get around smoothly. In spite of all these things this is still the greatest city in the world in my humble opinion and I wouldn't live anywhere else.
