silly umbrellas in london

how do you fancy seeinging the whole of london carrying silly red umbrellas around - i think it was rather amusing. yesterday, one of the banks was handing out free full size umbrellas to londoners at the evening standards news stands. what a fantastic idea!! londoners are not known for their friendliness in the tubes, buses or on the streets. i was absolutely wetting myslf laughing carrying a brigth red umbrella and running to other people with a same brolly - people actually smiled and in the tubes they talked to each other. "ooh - isn't that a nice brolly - where did you get yours" - what a fantastic pick-up line!!!

what a great marketing ploy it was - unfortunately it did not rain - the sun was out in all its glory!!
