    Loved Monte Carlo, the place was just stunning, the busses so cheap and clean, and there was a Spar corner shop, where half the store was taken up selling champagne.

    That reminded me, bumped (almost literally) into Dave Stewart today.

    The company was good, but it was the venue. I was sitting right next to the road, and never had a better spot to people/car watch in my life. And yes that lager was expensive, but it lasted a darn sight longer than any other drink I have bought, I certainly got my moneys worth

    I'll PM x



    I will have a watch x



    I cannot believe the prices and hype.

    I have only been to London with work, and I hate being there. I come out of the train station, grab a taxi, go to RCJ, reverse the process going home.

    But last time I went I was with someone that I am friends she with took me to a posh shop, to have a special drink (I cannot remember the name of the pub or drink). I do remember that the drink, in this cafe, in a shop, cost £35 each!!!! and the drink was gin slush (which I had in the freezer at home - I did not tell my friend that).... but OMG!

    I also find London trips daunting - not the train down, London itself, the constant noise and traffic, starting with crossing Eiston station itself - the underground is the worst though.
    But if I had to do it reguarly or for any length of time I would toughen up and be less country mouse

    Londoners also seem oblivious to how expensive things are. prices that make us gasp with horror, they just shrug off - Eldest child is a prime example of this.
