Robin, on the tube!

Hey up folks

Yes, this is Robin, back on the London Underground - which is the main topic of conversation in London these days, after the suicide bombings on Jul 7 and the failed bombings on Jul 21.

It's quite weird sitting there every morning with people reading about bombs and bombers in their newspapers and giving each other furtive looks to check their bag doesn't look too big or whatever. But all you can do is get back to normal and keep travelling to work and hope that the police can stop it. Not ideal, but there really aren't too many alternatives.

Robin certainly enjoyed his trip (he hasn't been out of the house much recently). Look, his eyes are wide with the excitement of being on the tube!

Hope you guys are all good.

I especially like the title of the photo-robin tubing! What with summer being in full swing and all, I have a much different mental image of robin riding a tube-it involves water and a boat.

I'm off on holiday for a few weeks and didn't want to miss the opportunity to wish Robin a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I would have baked a birdseed cake, but I wasn't sure where to send it - lol! Glad to see Robin is trying to 'get back to normal' like other Londoners - though he looks much more frightened than the rest of them.

Cheers! KJ in the USA

Robyn in Derby is a bit concerned - did you shield Robin's eyes from the page 3 pictures in The Sun newspaper?
