I kind of knew it would happen eventually, but nothing prepares you for waking up to something like this.

All of the mobile nets are jammed so it's difficult to find out if everyone we know are okay, but Max and I are fine. Not sure how he's getting home from work tonight though.

We didn't leave the house at all today and decided by early afternoon that it was time to start drinking.

We kind of overdosed on the news.. it's hard to pull yourself away, especially when it's your city.

Yesterday i would have shunned anything british, as usual somehow,
but here and now i would like to state my friendship and solidarity,
we all stand on your side.
On July 7th, 2005 02:55 pm (UTC), (Anonymous) replied:
Because you really mean it, or because it would be too shameful to do otherwise? If you usually would shun anything British, what has changed about your feelings toward the British today?

Perhaps the most useful (not to mention honest) thing you could do would be to say and offer nothing.

We'll definitely be sticking around home for the next few days...

Max works in the heart of all this and one of the bombs was at his train station. It's going be very difficult for him to get home tonight.

Bombing
I am so glad to see your posting, to know you all are alright. Woke up this morning (Canada) to hear what happened on the news. Was horrified and worried sick because my Best friend is over there with you, Colleen. The only thing I could think of was all four of you. I'm so glad that you are all safe, however I'm perfectly well aware that the days ahead are going to be very sad and difficult for yourselves and the rest of the City. Love to all of you. Stay safe, be careful but don't stop "Living". Laura

Re: Bombing
Our family and friends back in the states were all just as worried, from the media coverage there you would think the whole of London blew up. ;) Thank you for your concern.

good to hear you're ok

you're the only LJ friend from London i can think of (but i might be missing some actually)


i hope you'll get news from your friends/relatives asap

Thankfully everyone we know is safe. I think the attempted bombing the other week unnerved people more because after the first round they thought it was "over". I hope that is the case, but I doubt it.

Glad your safe Nomi...
I'd rather see you stay home, and not get curious enough to go out there today.

Thank you, juliabee. There wasn't any desire to go into town that
day, safely in the house and in front of the telly is where we
stayed. The authorities told people not to travel into London
under any circumstances anyway (except for emergencies).
Hopefully we've seen the last of it!

I'm okay, just a bit drained.. been on the phone and writing emails all day. You can't mentally prepare yourself for this kind of thing, but at least it wasn't as bad as it could have been.

Phew!!!
Thank god you're all fine!!! I've been glued to the TV set since 5 a.m. They say not to call London because the phone lines are jammed, but I've had my calling card in my hand all morning. Phew!!! Tears of relief!!! :-D

Re: Phew!!!
I sent you an email. You could have tried calling, I think it was mainly the mobile networks that were jammed.

I love you!!!!!
