Those of you who follow me on Twitter (if that’s not you, sort your priorities out) will know by now that I’m in my 3rd campaign as a Team v Leader. David from the Rank Foundation who interviewed me last summer told me at Residential that I was in for a big surprise and gosh, I was indeed. Because if you can’t guess from the name Routes to Roots, that’s a campaign about migration. And if you’re so used to me being all political you might have forgotten, but I am someone who’s where she is because she can parade around with a EU citizenship.
I can’t believe I’m 1 month away from the end of my journey as a Team v leader, and this campaign will be my legacy to Bloomsbury and the borough of Camden. We’re working harder than you’d probably think from the stream of Suits related tweets, and we’ll welcome your stories to join the story of Rachel, better known as the Loo Lady, and others at our fantastic event that is now a work in progress. Just give me a shout.
I am aware that now we have a TV channel dedicated to what to do in London that makes me as a blogger useless, but I’m pretty and there has always been a debate in Aesthetics about whether beauty and utility can coexist so I’ll use that as an excuse to justify my existence in this climate.
We all know how much Tom Hiddleston does to eradicate poverty in the world and to entertain geeks but would you argue for the suppression of Tom Hiddleston if he didn’t? I didn’t think so.
So you’ll now hear about the London Loo Tour of Bloomsbury I went on on a mixed weather Saturday morning during Holy Week. And you are already thinking that no way you’ll get up on a Sat morning even for the most amazing thing ever, she does afternoons too so you really have no excuse.
It was really fun, but as always with this kind of things it works best if you’re funny too so don’t take yourself too seriously as you’ll be paraded around by a girl carrying a Dalek manipulator arm. Otherwise known as a plunger, if you have lived under a rock for the past 50 years (have I told you I’ve been to the Doctor Who Anniversary Event at the ExCel? Now you know it).
I’m juggling a lot of things together, including a fundraising for the charity that will take me with them to Nicaragua for the summer, while I wait for hopefully good exam marks and I don’t have to hear from my family for 10 weeks. If you love your loo and care about other people having their loo to love, too, why not give me a few pennies on my JustGiving page?
If you think that I’m too delicate and/or posh to dig toilets in a poor country think that they gave me a place on the programme and as someone raised a Catholic I’m not that good at saying good things about myself, so they think I can do it without embellished truth.
