My day of surgery was wonderful and very memorable- a little I will share with you now(space permitting! Will continue this after if I need to).
On entering the large unassuming door in Harley st, you are about to embark on a journey of enchantment! Londonium is the mysterious Magical world lying in the deep depths of Harley st. A world where reality meets fantasy and clocks go backwards! The gorgeous Surgeon Dominic (why are they always so handsome!) with his beautiful P.A Lucy- blonde, leggy-you name it-Lucy has it! Then in comes Miles- tall, strong and good looking, who you would trust with your life! (Well you don't have much choice by this stage!).
In this land of fantasy you get to meet 2 delightful little elves wearing little multicoloured hats and big smiles- they are summoned by the delightful Dom to begin their little task of hair preparation for the exciting procedure which lies ahead! Their tiny little hands fumble around the back of my head and I think they possibly crown me with one of their little hats-a sort of Initiation ceremony to welcome me to Londonium!
I see curly trees and sit on numerous light coloured wooden benches during the course of my journey. I even remember being told, in the nicest possible way to shut up- perhaps I did deserve that in my hyper state of excitement!
My last recollection of Londonium was having a cold wet fish dabbed all over my face (presumably by those little elves?), and waking from my stupor asking the question 'What the hell was that on my face?'.
Next thing, I am transported to the railings outside Doms clinic whilst poor Lucy frantically throws my luggage into an awaiting 'Black taxi' before running back to peel me gently off the railings (just how she does all this in those heels is quite beyond me!) and off we go in the taxi,
My legs literally wobbling like jelly and my head spinning- as if by magic (those elves again?) , I find myself sitting on the bed in The Marylebone with Lucy looking after me!
My only momento from Londonium is two beautiful eyes (oh yes and a little bruising)! But I can now say I truly believe in 'Magic' -and you can find it too!- just put your trust in Dominic and his wonderful team!
.....and that's the story so far! I am now so excited and looking forward to my next 'Trip' to Londonium in July!
On a more serious note- I cannot praise this Surgeon enough- I read a review online in which Dominic was referred to as 'The Face God' - I now know from experience that they were not far wrong!
