“Nothing is certain in London but expense.”
The quotation was written by William Shenstone, poet and landscape gardener, sometime in the eighteenth century...so nothing much has changed about London then.
I have a meeting there this afternoon. I'm not sure who it's with - I mean, I know the name of the woman but nothing about her - and I'm not sure what it's about. It MIGHT mean more work for me, which is always exciting.
Country girl goes up to the Big City. I like going to London. It makes me feel grown-up. But I like coming home even better.
So, ARE the streets of London paved with gold?
I'll tell you later.
