the london eye keeps me sane
the temperature is just above 0 and my hands are too cold to use a pen. winter is here, my reckoning has come, its time to be tested and see if london is going to make it!
i cant turn on the radiator in my house. i am following the instructions…hold in the big knob, click the small knob three times and then rush back to my bedroom anticipating warmth. but even when i find one of the three boys i live with to operate said radiator i am practically straddling the vent in my room to warm up.
ohhhhhhh chilly times ahead!
today the sky was bright blue, sun was shining and i smiled to myself as i walked past the london eye on my way to work, as i do everyday, because it was gleaming up there in the sunshine. this huge white ferris wheel makes me smile everyday and reminds me that no matter how shit work was, how annoying it is that the boys don’t clean and watch football, how useless my heater is - i am in london. its a symbol of tourists, and travelers, and bigger things than me, and awe and wonder and standing still while looking up with your mouth open. and i smile because i can chuck it all in and travel for all i care.
thank god for the london eye to remind me of this daily.
the london eye keeps me sane. now i have to collect my delicates from the washing machine. and hold the big knob while clicking the small knob three times as i try for warmth again.
