I love London parks. Recently I have been to Regent's Park and Hyde Park with friends. At Regent's Park I jumped up and down to see over the hedges at the giraffes in London Zoo and wished for a rich boyfriend to take me to the zoo and buy me fish and chips and ice cream. (Since when has a zoo ticket cost £18.50??)
Perhaps that is a strange ideal date. That or a roller disco... Bars and cafés are over rated. You can't see zebras or wear roller blades for starters.
In Hyde Park I wandered along the Serpentine, where I contemplated jumping in and doing laps in the swimming area. It was dark, and January, so I didn't.
