Have you been to London?

I know i have already posted today but i just wanted to write a quick post about something funny that happens a lot. It's obvious im British when people speak to me and the first thing people say is ''OMG your from England?? Have you been to London?'' Or people just automatically speak about London when they realise im from England. Just because someone is British does not mean they are from London or have been haha. It's like me asking an American if they have been to New York..Many Americans haven't even left the state they are from lol.

I have actually been to London. My first time was in 2000 when my dad recieved an MBE (Member of the British Empire) from the queen. I got to sit in Buckinhgam Palace for 3 hours bored out of my mind. I was only 10 and they only thing that amazed me was the fact 'I got to sit on the queens toilet'..
The Queen & Daddy with his pootash 11 years ago.

Did you know even though i am British i have only ever lived in England once for 5months to work as an Au-Pair in Aldershot?! And my first visit to England wasn't until we went to London in 2000 when i was 10.


  1. Whoa, your dad got the honor of meeting the Queen! Rock on! Lol, and I love your comparison of london and new york - that put it in perspective for us americans :D

  2. That's sooo cool! You should have removed the toilet seat and found a way out with it. You could've sold it on ebay!

  3. That is awesome!!
