After a gruelling set of health and safety and facilities meetings that lasted over three hours and left me slightly dazed, I left our head office at 12pm earlier today to head back to my own office. I will take this opportunity to mention, as I always do, that JM Barrie wrote Peter Pan in a room on the fourth floor of our head offices. I posted a picture of our building here and one day I promise I will remember to take my camera along when I visit the fourth floor meeting room so that you can see the room itself.
I walked into the park around the corner from our offices and was greeted with a scene of mild pandemonium.
It’s not every day you see an emergency helicopter parked perfectly on a narrow strip of paving in the Victoria Embankment Gardens. I ascertained from some spectators that something had happened and after finding out which direction the paramedics had run off to, I turned around and went the opposite direction. (I’m the type of person that will faint at the sight of an accident, I am sure, and I have a long-existing blood phobia).
I looked with envy at the people basking in the sun and glanced to my right and saw the Wasabi sushi store and quickly made up my mind.
There is always time to smell the flowers and notice beautiful structures. Will I ever tire of spotting the London Eye? I doubt it – I amused/annoyed a couple of my fellow passengers on the plane when I let out a little squeal when I spotted the London Eye from above.
I haven’t eaten sushi since I got to the UK because whenever I see it in shops, it always has salmon in and I am allergic to salmon. So I was thrilled to go into this store and order an assortment of tuna, chicken teriyaki and crabstick portions.
I went back to the deck chairs and found a nice spot in the sun.
Don’t be misled by the seemingly small portion – I had one hand roll but two portions of every thing else. I just couldn’t balance he whole lot on my lap for the photo!
Once I finished my lunch, I lay back on the chair, listened to Parov Stelar on my iPod and admired the blue sky. Give Parov Stelar’s song Kisskiss a listen on Last.fm.
