I have to drive my DD2 across London today - she starts a new job tomorrow. I have only driven in London once before in my life. Prayers please.

My thoughts are totally with you.  I feel the same way about driving in Toronto!

Not as scary as I feared although I came the long way home to avoid central London. The worst bit was the cyclists.

Glad to hear your travels were a success. Good luck go out to DD2 for continued success in her new job. Does this mean she has moved into London?

I was in a taxi once traveling from the down town London bus depot to what ever hotel I had reservations for all the way across town.  Just the driving on the left side of the road had me in a daze, LOL. It was 9pm, still day light, and I was alone, but thankfully, the taxi driver was nice and I got where I needed to go without mishap. Fun times.

Sounds fun Laurna. Our long summer evenings are great - the down side is that in the winter it is dark by 4pm.

Yes DD2 is now working in London, and is looking for somewhere permanent to live. Rents are horrendously expensive in London (about 700 per month for a shared flat/apartment) but she has a few options to check out in reasonable locations. DS lives in London too and DD1 lives and works in Cambridge so now that we have moved south we can see quite a lot of them.

I shall miss having DD2 living with us though as she is the most efficient housekeeper that I have ever met, as well as being fun to be with.

Unfortunately, "DS" and "efficient housekeeper" cannot normally be used in the same sentence.  Trust me.

Unfortunately,  in Revanne's case that is also true when DS stands for Dear Sister, except for the few months when her DD2 lived with me when she was in college!
