London in a Minute

We love our laidback Bodrum life even when huddled under a duvet watching BBC Entertainment on a loop. There’s just enough to do in Bodrum to keep us entertained during the short days of winter – cafés, restaurants, cinema, people. The summer hassle has been replaced by a more civilised, gentile pace and we will savour it before the heat and the hustle returns. However, this winter has been different; we’ve been spending our days beavering away to plug the book to death. You’re probably fed hearing about it. I know I am. They’ll be no more talk of it until 2012, unless something dramatic happens like a nomination for the Booker Prize or a call from a TV executive asking to buy the rights. Of course, this is as likely as me losing my virginity, but if the impossible happens, Liam wants to be played by Jude Law. He’s suggested that Danny DeVito might step into my pink slippers.

We’re really looking forward to our flying visit to Blighty for our big city Christmas fix. Bugger the doom and gloom and the whinging soothsayers who seem to wallow in the misery of others. We’re going to have fun in our home town.

  2. Oh London, my home town. It’s nice to be there for a bit, but after over 20 years living somewhere else it’s a bit like looking at an old picture postcard. Things look just the same, but so different. I would rather be having fun somewhere else, but I am sure we will be back there again soon, can’t get it out of our system… But… do have fun, the pair of you!!

  4. I see the ‘Ghost of Christmas Future’ has been pre-planning your collapse from overwork! I think you are skiving off and want a doctor’s note.
    Have a good time – your P45 will be waiting when you get back.

  5. I know where you’re coming from. Jack, Liam have a Blast! it’s gotta be done. The atmosphere in Oxford Street, Picadilly etc was great when I was there, I got quite emotional and homesick but couldn’t avoid the teeth drying experience whilst taking in the lights. Did you write a book this year???? oops – can’t wait to get my copy. I think 2012 is going to be your year so don’t forget the Duty Free Shampoo for when you both return to Bods – keep safe, healthy, wealthy and wise – Happy New Year XXXXXXXXx
