We may be stroppy and London life may sometimes get us down, but we’re actually a pretty easy bunch to please.

 

1. When you have more money than you thought on your Oyster card

2. And all the public transport is running on time

3. No delays/strikes/major inconveniences of life = pure bliss

4. Which means no running up and down stairs and getting that new shirt all sweaty…

5. …the one you managed to get in the sale #savvy

6. Knowing London so well that, if there were any delays, you’d be unphased anyway.

7. Having a train carriage all to yourself

8. …because that means you can sit absolutely anywhere

9. And avoid all the awkward eye contact from strangers

10. Spontaneous evenings out where you don’t have to queue

11. Generally not having to queue to get to any London station/toilet/cash machine/bar/any place anywhere in London

12. When the waiting time for a restaurant is less than 20 minutes

13. And when you’ve found one of those bars that you’ve only heard about in fairytales…

14. …where they do 2 for 1 drinks….

22. Bringing in lunch to work for more than 2 days in a row

24. But then getting lazy and having to buy lunch again

25. And managing to get it for £6 or less #bargain

26. Shopping in Oxford Street midweek and actually enjoying the experience

27. Because it’s basically like walking into a ghost town. (Okay, not quite).

28. Feeling like a celeb when the newspaper man keeps hassling you to take the free paper

31. All intent on getting to their destination as quickly as possible

32. But the best thing of all has to be exchanging that very rare smile with a fellow Londoner…

33. Because we’re all connected by our love for this city
