No foot is safe!

Mind The Gap!

I was born and raised in Greater London. I have been going in and out of Central London all my life. And I have been a Londoner for almost the last 4 years so I would say I was a very competent Tube traveler - almost well enough to move around with my eyes shut! But now, I will use the underground with my eyes wide open!!!

Yesterday, I was on my way to meet my sister at Liverpool street. My journey started at Clapham South Station and I had to change at Bank. It was a very regular journey, until something unexpected happened. 

I fell in the gap! Yes,  I FELL IN THE GAP! I still can't believe it.

All I can remember is following a man into the tube, I took a step, and dropped down and was just looking at the floor of the tube, which was almost at my eye level! I didn't move or even make a sound. I was completely startled.


Then I found myself quickly and gently picked up and placed on the train. I was in a state of shock and embarrassment. Instantly I could feel a bruise on my left leg when I had hit it on my way down.
It was only one stop to Liverpool street, and the whole time I felt eyes on me and the pain in my leg. Silently I was telling myself - don't cry, don't cry, don't cry - and I succeeded until I met my sister. It was probably one of the most ridiculous things I had to explain.

 I did not see the guy who lifted me up. Whoever you are, thank you for saving me, you are my hero!

 Forever now, I will mind the gap...

Happy Birthday To Mummy Loo!

 Yesterday, was my mum's birthday! We strolled around the local park and my mum showed me a part I had never seen before. It was a serene, bluebell meadow. Had to go back to the house to grab my camera and the Sukis to have a quick, mini photoshoot!

I had a wonderful day, I hope my mum did too! xxx

Awwww... Kitty, I've missed you!

Dragonsquatch and blossom!

I am squeezing in a blog post now, before I discover, time has whizzed by without me blogging and it's Winter!

So welcome Spring!

Our area looks so pretty with all the flowers blooming. I took my Dragonsquatch for a walk today and found a beautiful pink blossom tree on the street. Unfortunately it was windy, and taking photos with the Dragonsquatch posing between the delightfully pink flowers, was proving difficult. However, I managed to get a couple of snaps.

I've been feeling a bit out of sorts lately... The works on our house is never ending, but I'm not gonna get in to that right now.

This post is all about my little photoshoot with the Dragonsqautch and the prettiest blossom tree I've found so far!

 It was wonderful to go outside the house and enjoy the Spring sunshine! Today I had a good day!!!!

On my way home, I saw my new friend. This is the second time we have met. I have never seen a cat like this before. Perhaps a mix of Siamese?
