HOME!

Designed by- Jeremy Weate, a blogger in Nigeria too. Wouldn't you just love it if this existed? Great job Jeremy! Saw this on his blog a while back and again on Monas blog.

I have begun my journey home! Right now I'm in London and it took me about 5 hours to get home from the time we landed in Heathrow airport ...someone under the train ...train derailment...and  to top it off, the weather was miserable and it rained all over my newly done hair. Oh well, life goes on. 

I didn't realise that you were only allowed to carry one piece of luggage when travelling from London to any other destination (just one, no hand luggage..nothing), although you can have 2 pieces and hand luggage when coming to London. How does that make sense? I have all this 'load' from people sending stuff from Sweden to Nigeria and more than one piece of luggage...Now I have to try and sort out what to do with it. Dilemma....why do I always say yes!

One suitcase is at left baggage in heathrow, I can't be hauling load around the place. I'll think about that on the day I have to travel, I can't worry myself right now. I'm even scared to shop so I don't have too many more things to carry...but its tempting. The sales here are crazy! Maybe I'll indulge in one or two items :).

There's this guy renting one of the rooms here and I don't quite get his accent. It's a mixture of South London and Nigerian Yoruba and Igbo. "You grew up in NAgeria YE?..Its NAT eezzy blad"...Say what? Lol. I say something to him just so he can respond and chat some more so I can laugh later YE.

Yuwee, thanks for singing True Love for me lol, you are a clown, I promise I wil call. Thanks to everyone who left comments about the True Love spread, especially the irate anonymous person on bellas blog, there always has to be one right? Saying bitchy stuff doesn't bother me, the saying goes; what cant kill you.....

Okay I'm off to hit the West end, I will not buy anything, I will not buy anything, I will not buy anything........

Hello u!

RE the luggage info check with your airline.... BA for example will enforce the 'one piece of luggage' rule from September, but 2 pieces will still be allowed to specific countries, Nigeria included....
As far as I'm aware the 'no hand luggage' rule is not in existence. You are allowed one piece of hand luggage from london.

Calabar Gal said...

Did u survive the west end and not really but anything? Imposible.... LOL!!

Did a double take when I saw the tube map. It would be nice if that was a reality. Power failure by PHCN while on the tube, underground at 'law school' or 'falomo' wouldnt be funny at all. (smile)
