    What Amber said :p

    Saying that, the weather is very nice at the moment, but, it's bound not to last :(

    According to weather reports after today for the next week it is supposed to rain :p

    But then the weather reports have been wrong in the past, better to be safe than sorry though :p

    Indeed, and even that wasn't predicted. I don't know why they bother forcasting anymore! :p

    Although, i popped outside a few mins ago, and it does feel like it's going to rain soon, kind of damp feeling. :(

    It might be raining in Paris when I get there for all I know. Dang weather can just never cooperate. *throws hands in the air*

    5 more days. Time to start coordinating those plans for my arrival in London. :p

    I have the choice of two hotels I think it will probably be Paddington...just need to double check on that when I get back home.

    It's bound to rain. Not only is a Bank Holiday weekend coming up, but I have outdoor stuff I want to do during it. Guaranteed to rain. So I'd pack the umbrella.

    I hope Mitt did bring an umbrella with the weather we have at the moment :p

    Aye, the rain is about to hit me too :(

    Lol @ Laj That's always the way, as soon as plans are made to do something outdoors, it rains!

    It was thunder, lightning, and heavy rain for a couple of hours out where I am near Heathrow. I think it's pretty much stopped now. Turned all dark and weird-looking for awhile though!

    Yeah I did bring an umbrella. ;) But somehow everytime we were outside it was only a light rain and only really needed it a few times. I really had a good time! :D

    Lets see I went toooooo.....
    I went to the Tower of London. I knew the Crown Jewels were beautiful but I didn't know they sparkled so.
    I went to Parliment and the Abbey. Well, I didn't go to Parliment, since ya know its heavily guarded.
    I went to Foribidden Planet. I went to Covent Gardens. Watched the changeing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, although just the minor version but that was still cool. Went to the Sherlock Holmes muesum. Went on the London Eye. Went to the British muesum and got scared by the mummies. Went to Oxford Street, which was a brillant plan on a bank holiday....

    Basically I got to do everything I wanted to do since I was 12 years old. Thank you all so much for the help!

    In addition, I really LOVE the chocolate I found there! I drooled over the cadbury egg vending machines in the tube stations!!!
    I highly recommend a Chinese resturant off Russel square called Poons. I enjoyed the tv there but I missed seeing Holby City(By 12 hours!) and Casualty(sp?).

    Well theres lots more details but thats a nice short version of my trip. :)
