|Always a tourist - Trafalger Square at lunchtime|
|"People with heart conditions - use the lift!" Whoops...|
I had a wander around Covent Garden (I love it there), nipped into Erics Nook to buy a gift for Alison & Dude then walked to Shaftesbury Avenue. Phil Sloman had told me the Cinema Store was closing but I didn't expect it to be so sudden and was disappointed to find the space empty (with a 'Trust No-One!' poster on the door). I walked around the corner and discovered Orbital Comics (which I’d never seen before), went in and managed to pick up a vintage Stormtrooper for £12! I got my lunch from the Fiori Corner deli at Leicester Square (chicken salad sandwich in a ciabatta, made as I stood there and still cheaper - and far tastier - than anything Subway could conjure) and walked up Charing Cross road, nipping into Any Amount Of Books (which Phil showed us on our first Crusty Exterior meet-up) and picking up a cosy mystery I’d been looking for. With that, I caught the tube back to Kings Cross, walked out of the station and around the corner and The Waiting Room was just along the road.

Roll on the Brum meet-up next month!
