It sounds like a lovely day out, actually - wish I could go - I really don't think it'll be a big noisy bash, there is a cake stall for a start, it'll be a large cross between a village fete/school fair/folk festival I would guess.
Go on, essbee - they'll be OK - take the lift and have a day off, you deserve it.
(Sorry I haven't seen you on msn lately, it's this sodding training keeping me out till all hours.)
There's nothing to say that if there are more attacks, they will be in London - it might be Manchester, or Edinburgh or anywhere. It does make you think twice but it would be a shame to miss a lovely day out when the actual chances of anything happening are quite small. Easy to say, though, I know we mothers worry all the time anyway!
Have read all the thread, and sorry to be a party pooper, but there is no way my children would be travelling by London tube or bus. But then, perhaps I'm being just being irrational? I did make my husband drive to the Passport office in London earlier this week rather than use public transport.
Could you ask him to stick to taxis once in London? Is that a practical compromise?
