KCU Down Under

Said a riotous goodbye to Kings Cross United blogger Bumblebee last night, as she sets off for Australia, with her husband, soon to be followed by KCU blogger, Hamish, and her partner. Hamish and Bumblebee didn't know each other before 7/7, now they are best friends and have inspired each other to go and live in Sydney, where they won't have to travel on tubes anymore. So now we have KCU members in Spain, Turkey, Singapore and Sydney, as well as all over the UK. Many of the KCU people will be coming to my wedding in April next year. We all got quite emotional ( *and drunk) last night, thinking of how we have all become part of each other's lives, and we were just fellow passengers before last summer. Holly and I were struggling a bit last night, we had got trashed the night before and ended up discussing politics, and declaiming *poetry until 3.30am. She hit the dancefloor, I crawled home to die.

*if you have never settled down, and read this poem out loud, you have missed out big time. Go pour a whisky, close the curtains and light a candle, for Bess the landlord's daughter, ('the land lord's black-eyed daughter, plaiting a dark red love-knot into her long black hair'.) Goosebumps.
