‘Typical’ British Weather!
I’m kidding, this was a day with weather I’ve certainly not seen an a good few months! Rain came plopping down as if a well packed block of clouds decided to come down to tree level and then dump its load on us. This was, perhaps somewhat foolishly, ‘suposed’ to be one of those perfect pretty days, full of sunshine and laughter (to be fair, there was probably more of this as a result!) with a nice picnic on the grass as kindly organised by MCM to celebrate the success of Wish Magazine!
Turns out, Mr Blue Sky wasn’t so happy about that idea, so after a good hour of walking from shelter to shelter in Battersea Park, myself and the Wish Magazine crew decided to peg it like cats in the rain back to our big, beautiful ‘look at us’ bus – the MCM routemaster!
I might sound peeved about the weather, but it was actually such a fun day! As our dear friend Mariell, who wrote the awesome article Two Redheads Walked into a Bar, mused afterwards; it made the day so much more interesting. Sometimes it’s best not to be twee and perfect but to have a bit of excitement and a good story instead!

The rain did kindly clear for ten minutes. It was just the perfect time to crack open the champers and toast to the magazine that Carrie and I both worked so hard on and that so many of you love. We were most happy to be welcome Mariell (who posted about this here), Marin (who modelled in A Best Friend Kind of Weekend), Bart (who photographed Desk Job), Emma (who illustrated Will You be my Penpal?), Caitlin (the intern who featured in Working Out Your Future) and Holly (our amazing sub-editor who was so dedicated in editing our whole 88 page beauty.) Thank you so much MCM for taking us on a wonder-tour of London in your bus and for keeping us happy with bubbles and tasty treats!
