It Aint Over ‘Til Its Over!
Wensday was awesome! We got the train down to london to go to 10 downing street! I had the best day thanks to the taxi driver haha! Izzy asked him to take us on a short cut but he took us the long way! I managed to see everything i wanted to go to london for. I saw trafolgra square (how ever u spell it), Big Ben, the bit of london that looks like new york! and the list goes on. When we eventually got to 10 Downing street we watched Diversity dance which was amazing (looks better in real life than tely) and bless the lil man wiv big hair face planting the floor!. After we went in through number 11 but was still in number 10 (how strange!)we had a group picture with Gordi B! Then jus like mingled with everyone! Its was grate chattin with diversity seeing wat they wer up 2 next (MOBO’S) and how they got into dancing. We also went in2 the room where the politions sit and have meetings and a few got the chance 2 sit in Gordons chair!.Before i new it it was time 2 go so we managed 2 get a few pics of us outside the door. This day is up there with 1 of the best days of my life! so THANKS guys for arranging it for us! keep posted for the pics cumin up !!
