Rosie and I at Joost's cafe

So this morning I woke up at 5.45…Jet lag!! After a relaxed morning trying to go back to sleep and watching half an episode of One Tree Hill on TV we headed out to take in some of this London sun, which surprisingly was very warm today! We had breakfast of muslie and yoghurt on the street and felt the underground rumbling underneath us which made me feel like there was an earthquake every 5 minutes! It was then time to lay in the sun in the park near Buckingham palace…hoping to get a glimpse of the queen, naturally. Unfortunately she doesn’t seem to go for morning strolls through the tourist filled parks, funny that!

It was then time to get our famous on as we wandered to Trafalgar Square where some people were filming a moving ‘Street Dance’ or ‘Street Dance 2’

My room at Rosie's

– I can’t remember. Anyway the “biggest street dance group to come out of Britain” were being filmed dancing, was pretty cool, they are call Flawless, and the name is a representation of the 5 minutes of dance we saw. It was however interesting was pretty cool, they are call Flawless, and the name is a representation of the 5 minutes of dance we saw. It was however interesting watching the filming, we might even be in the background of one of the shots!! We also got interviewed by some news person to comment on Posh’s new baby’s name ‘Harley Seven’, I said that it was the best name possible for her new child.

So I just got stuck in a lift for 5 minutes at Heathrow Airport on my way to my boarding gate to Amsterdam with an angry American business man that had one of those fancy ear phone things in and a hanky to wipe the sweat off his face! Very exciting/amusing stuff!! I have to board now!!

I was greeted at Amsterdam airport with much excitement and laughter by Rosie and Alex! It was so lovely to see them both and highly amusing as Rosie was being her hilarious self! We drove in Alex’s pimp machine back to their house in Den Haag…might I just mention here that it doesn’t get dark in here until about 11pm, which I fantastic for my jet lag! We went grocery shopping at Albert Heign and then went home (Rosie and Alex’s home) to eat pizza and drink beer (which is very cheapJ). I fell asleep in my own little granny flat in the courtyard at the back of their house, which Alex so kindly made for me ( converted their shed). There are pictures and Buddha flags on the walls and I feel right at home, it is very Gezellig (pronounced herzelick) as the Dutch would say!!
