London

I only found out this afternoon, about the terrorist bombings in London. It was such a shock I forgot to withhold the swear words, and wondered whether any of the boy's friends or relatives in London were affected. My next thought was, 'I wonder if it was a Parisian retaliation for not getting the 2012 Olympics?'.

Anyway, I was relieved when the boy told me his cousins were okay. And hopefully my brother's friends, whom I stayed with years ago, are okay too.

What crappy people terrorists are, to target innocent civilians.

So that's why the french were selling those t-shirts off so cheap. They needed fast cash to fund a strike against Britain!

It all makes sense now....

There's a sale on French t-shirts?!

Sorry, it's the bargain hunter in me...

It was a really awful. Sometimes things that happen just don't make any sense..

I feel worse. I only found out about this afternoon during lunch. I live in such a bubble sometimes. I had the same thought about people I know who live over there. I'm waiting for emails from them.

The world is a nasty place sometimes.

not the sort of news you want to hear when you are about to get on a plane for Heathrow! It's very sad here at the moment, especially as they have discovered it was British people that carried out the attacks.

kazzer: but they were Northerners though, not Londoners.
