...so tired...  
sis was here with her kids, four kids running around my house and proving just how not-child-proof this place is? Is tiring as hell... But, now I'm packed, I have pizza in the oven, and I'm planning on not doing a thing tonight.

One thing, I was going to go for the Heathrow Express train, but I was just checking out options and there's a National Express bus that leaves from Victoria bus station and goes to Heathrow. It's a lot cheaper than the train and I don't have to walk very far to get it... has anyone any experience of it? Is there an easier way to get to Heathrow, given that my bus is due to arrive in Victoria in the middle of rush hour?

I also have to get a train into Glasgow at 6:50 am tomorrow so I think this is probably going to be my last post until next Monday (random drunken voice posts not included), so have a great weekend everyone! I'm meeting my girls, I'm going to have an amazing time!

ETA I can't find my phone charger. I'm charging it right now via the USB port and we're not allowed to use them in the main hall at the con, so maybe it'll last, but if I'm out of contact or seem to be ignoring calls and/or texts I might not be... I might just have run out of power on my phone. :)

second edit so Chris just posted another Smoke Signal over at the Kane MySpace and dude - the grass on that lawn needs cut more than mine does! (Also, he broke his leg? Ouch!)

Hi hun, if you want a change from buses you could tube it. Either take the Circle line (yellow line) or District Line (green line) from Victoria to South Kensington (one stop away) and then change on to the Piccadilly line (dark blue line) which takes you all the way to Heathrow. It takes just over an hour - according to national rail it takes 10 minutes more than going by Heathrow Express, but it only costs £4 in comparison with £18 and if you want to do the Heathrow Express you have to get on a tube anyway. It will be rush hour but yesterday I managed to negotiate my (then largely empty) suitcase (a big one which earlier that day had contained fourteen ringbinders) through the barriers and on to a train at a similar time without any trouble or squeezing.

By the way I haven't even thought about tomorrow and getting ready for it yet - apart from recognising that I'm going to have to come into work very early in the morning - booo!! Something tells me my clothes won't have taken themselves out of the washer and started drying, so I'd better get home and do that!

The National Express bus is 4 quid as well, and dude - what's with the taking the tube one stop?! Walk it! *g*

I'm thinking it might depend on how I'm feeling when I get to Victoria, the break from the bus might be a good idea... I just remembered I should look out my London map thingy. So yeah, I'm not completely packed then!

Do you know what time the opening ceremony is? I might not be there for the start.

Hey, I was thinking of wee Scottish lassie lost in London!;P

No idea about the opening ceremony - probably about 8 but will probably be late knowing Sean so probably about 8.30 - 9pmish?! We are going to register (and register you) when we get there. I'm thinking if you get into London on time at 17.30 you could well be with us by about 7ish so you should be fine.

Ok, I really have to go home and start those clothes drying now!!

I've never done the bus thing, I always use the Heathrow Express because it's fast and easy.

What time are you getting to Heathrow?
the girl who used to dance on fire and brimstone: simon//laugh - lit_glitterwhiskyinmind on April 10th, 2008 05:05 pm (UTC)
I'mnot sure what time I'll get there, my bus doesn't get into Victoria until 5.30 and then I have to get to Heathrow and then to the hotel, so it'll be later on definitely.
Ah yes, quite a bunch of us, isn't it?unhobbityhobbit on April 10th, 2008 05:44 pm (UTC)
Woah, woah, woah, I'm behind the times, why are you going to Heathrow?

Also, we had to do a mad tidy up before my cousins came here at Easter. There were still piles of stuff that they knocked over (though,l to be fair, I knock them over too, so it wasn't much different).

I'm going to a Serenity convention tomorrow, in Heathrow. By bus... 'cause it seemed like a good idea at the time? *g*

Edit - so not the icon I meant to use! Sorry - this is the one I meant!

I hope you have a really fun and relaxing time. :)

As for Chris's grass: I'm so glad I wasn't the only one who watched that vid and got completely distracted by the boy's gardening abilities, or lack thereof. I then realised I probably needed to let him off the hook given his injury.

Enjoy your weekend! :D
