I had decided to forego writing a blog entry about London and what has happened there over the past few days but watching TV last night has changed my mind.

We had just finiched watching yet more Family Guy when we switched onto the Channel 4 news. There in a bed in a London hospital talking to the Queen about his ordeal was someone who looked and sounded like our dance teacher! Thanks to the marvel of the internet (how did we manage before?) we discovered (via the local newspaper website) that 2 Ipswich dancers had been on one of the trains with one of the bombs but had miraculously escaped serious injury. It just brought it all very close to home....

I'm not sure what the bombers hope to achieve as it seems that terrorist activity just strengthens resolve and bands together groups of people through adversity. It still isn't clear however who did all this so we'll have to wait and see how it all unfolds.
