You’re Officially a Local When…

Yes, it’s official. We are Londoners.

Yesterday, G and I went shopping along Oxford Street for Poland gear (ie everything warm). Upon moving here initially, I would take any opportunity to walk by Oxford Circus and explore the shops and enjoy the crowds. Now, I’ll do ANYTHING in my power to avoid going to Oxford and Regents Streets. My overwhelming thought as we walk along with the monsterous crowds is “blasted tourists mucking up my efficient browze”. When did it happen?

Too, it’s interesting because I’m beginning to take certain elements of life for granted…walking along the Thames, seeing Big Ben, romping through Trafalgar Square and pub grub are normal and routine.

We are, officially, Londoners.
