After all the shocking news lately; Gaza, plane crashes and the Ebola breakout in Africa – I feel a bit depressed about life after reading my morning paper, but at least we’ve had the Commonwealth Games to take our minds off what is happening in the world. I love a bit a competitive sport.
I can’t say that I have ever felt compelled to don a pair of running shoes and join in. I have enough trouble pounding the streets of Central London on my way to meet clients, friends and family. Who needs a work out when you’re an elite escort? I have never subscribed to a gym and I doubt I ever will!
I have to say that I have never felt more proud to be a Londoner as I have of late. We have so much here to offer the world as they fly into our airports and either holiday or settle here for a while. I have clients that are French, Spanish, Italian, American, Russian and Arabian. I can speak a little of all the languages and I have taken evening classes to improve the GCSE standard of French I acquired at Secondary School. How else would I know how to say “excuse me, could you tell me where I would find Gucci?” or “pardon me, do you know the way to the George V hotel from here?”
[As you all know, I have stayed there many times; either alone or with a client – it does pay to help oneself.]
As the sun beams its way through the window on these warm summer days and evenings, I hope this lovely weather is here to stay for some time and the terrible news doesn’t go on for much longer. Keep your fingers crossed that the forthcoming weeks will be happier for everyone.
