Manchester – London week 12, the final week

This bad boy is gonna be a BIG one. Mostly photos- but of the large variety. You have been warned!

So, I’m back in Canada now with full intentions of returning to England for a more prolonged stay *fingers crossed*. When people ask why- I have decided to go with: “England woo’d me with its impressive display of overcast skies”. Rather them ramble on about comics, travel and Cadwell. I think if anyone followed my blog while I was away or has a brief chit chat with me, they’ll know that this has been a long process with much thought- that dates back to September 2009.

Blah, blah, blah- PHOTOS!

So during my last few days in Manchester there was an lovely rainbow sky show! It is captured here via photos and video! On the video you get the lovely treat of Cadwell trying to speak with an Irish accent and only succeeding in sounding like a pirate.

The day after the Silver Mt. Zion concert (Wednesday, March 24th to be specific) I took a saunter around Euston station as I waited for my hotel room to be ready. My final few days were spent with my lovely new army print suitcase (as I managed to ruin two other cases on this adventure) in hotels wandering around London.
I found some treats of the architecture variety!

This was the hotel wed-fri. A swanky surprise!

I was pleasantly surprised by the Nanny McPhee world premiere while I was walking around central London waiting for Adam’s train to get in from Manchester. I was just about to sit down to a lovely Italian meal when I glimpsed Emma Thompson and Maggie Gyllenhaal “red carpeting”. *swoon* Both ladies are très lovely in person… from a distance. :D

I took this photo on the tube. Aw, memories. Meaning can be found here.

I think this is easily one of my favorite Adam/Kayla photos as it a) reminds me of a certain Tegan and Sarah photo and b) reminds me of how awesome our awesome is.

I will miss you futuristic tube stations!

Twinnings tea shop! This place was closed for renos when I was in London in September so I had to go back! For any tea lover I HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend this sucker! eeee!

I couldn’t find the Temple church when I was sightseeing in September either. Another success story.

To complete my set of “things I missed”- the Aztec masks weren’t in their cases at the British Museum as they were being cleaned last time- so we slipped in just before it closed so I could check that sucker off my list.

Friday night was my “Good-Bye Drinks” at the Phoenix Artist Club- the following photos are the result of mixing friends with booze.
Beth one of Adam’s friends who I met in February (and adore!!) stopped by and got me an epic pencil case of the red telephone booth variety. Très exciting!

Marc and Kieron. Best part here is both Marc’s face and the fact that there’s a Puppetry of the Penis poster behind them.

Anna kisses!

Kayla kisses!


Julia may be pissed at me for postin’ this sucker but it results in laughter on my end. Also- YAY Jon Browne! + Nevs and sadly a blurry Andy :(

Anna vs. chip bowl

Nevs, Julia and Sarah. HAWT.

Adam and Marc have a very … sensual…relationship which I dare not intrude on…

But we do make rude hand gestures towards it ;) (Sorry mum!)

My face is a bit much on this one… I apologize

This photo also makes me giggle.

Annnd this one too-

And this one! Baha! Très serious.

Here we are the following day, very, very hung over at the UK Web & Mini Comix Thing. Oh boys, oh boys!

Barely had any sleep that night, Adam and I woke up really early to say our good-byes at Gatwick. It’s been almost a week that I’ve been back and visiting with my folks.

I will leave you with this fantastic ad campaign that can be found around the London tube stations.

    I feel like such a loser for not being able to make it but please trust that the fire in the substation story. That was the Thursday and your going-away was the Friday. Boo. Ok I promise the next time you’re here we’ll do something grand.
