The Unbroken Mirror

Hello dear readers!

Seven is a number that looms large throughout the human psyche, reverberating through folklore, suspicion, and culture both popular, and not so popular.

There’s The Seven Dwarves, The Magnificent Seven, Seven Brides For Seven Brothers, The Seven Samurai, seven deadly sins, and even seven golden virtues.

It crops up, again and again and again, and I guess that makes the subject of this blog one that contributes to the phenomenon because this time next week will see myself and my wife, Tina, celebrate out wedding anniversary.

I’ll let you guess how many years it’s been.

Going Underground

Hello dear readers!

Yes, after a slight delay caused by a completely expected literary festival, it’s time for the second instalment of our Wonderful Adventures In London (to be read in a loud and booming voice).

In this little snippet, there will be bus journeys, a museum, friends, the underground, and the third and final chapter of the three hotel rooms.

But wait! Where did we leave off in the first instalment. Well, if memory serves, we had just been moved from the Ibis Styles hotel and it’s spectacularly disabled unfriendly lay out to the much cosier Best Western hotel, that practically adjoined it and fallen into bed after a long and tiring day.

What follows are the events of the second, third, and fourth day of our mini-break.
