Yaxlich has spent the day in London today and he had a lot of fun. He has just got home all covered in dust and grime and has got black bogies but the first thing he thought about was telling you about his day trip.

He lives in the suburbs of London so he rarely goes into central London. It's always very busy and he doesn't like big crowds. The Underground is always hot and sweaty and during rush hour you have to sniff a Ukranians armpit. It reminds him of the Job Centre. Which equally reminds him that he has to go there tomorrow but he doesn't want to think nasty thoughts. He wants to tell you about his trip into London with his sister and daddy.

When Yaxlich was much, much smaller than he is now, his mummy and daddy decided they didn't love each other anymore so they got divorced. His daddy went to live in another country so he doesn't see him very often. Yaxlich doesn't know whether or not his daddy went to live in another country to get away from him or not but he sometimes feels very awkward around his daddy. Even though he is much older now and can drink beer and drive a car and has to shave, he is still unsure about what to call his daddy. He still gets very confused about what he feels.

Today they went into London to see 'Phantom of the Opera' and they had a cup of coffee in Selfridges and they got to ride on a bus which was a lot of fun because Yaxlich normally doesn't see London when he is on the Underground because it is underground.

He had lots of fun today but still felt awkward when hugging his daddy but that's a story for another day. Today he had fun and is smiling.

Lots of grown people feel awkward hugging their daddy, Yaxlich, divorce or no divorce.
Mimi is jealous because Yaxlich saw Phantom of the Opera in London.

P.S. It's good to know Yaxlich is smiling.

Oh, it sounds like Yaxlich had an interesting day today in London (a place that I've always wanted to visit).

I hope Yaxlich resolves his confusion about his feelings for his daddy and what he should call him. Maybe Yaxlich can invite his daddy to chat over beer.

I appreciate Yaxlich's post about his day. And details like the black bogies and smelling a Ukrainian's armpit on the Underground made me laugh!

Phantom of the Opera was very good. The scenery was awesome, the songs were fantastic and the cast were outstanding. He wants to try to get to the theatre more as it is fun.

Yaxlich has always found it difficult to build a bond with his daddy because he only sees him once a year at the most. Sometimes he calls him dad and other times he doesn't use a name at all. When he calls him dad, he almost feels like he is betraying his other daddy because that's what he calls him.

Still it's only something he needs to worry about once a year so he's not going to think about it again for another 364 days.

Yaxlich is pleased Lizza appreciated the post and hopes that she gets to see London one day. For all its faults, it is still a beautiful city.
