I was awoken by helicopters and continued to be bothered by their persistent noise ALL day. I suspected something was up when, on my way for a swim I spotted several people with MASSIVE cameras pointed at the Shard (but couldn’t actually see anything myself) and when I came back from having my pedicure (my life is sooo tough my darlings!) and the bloody things were still going I decided to google it….
Which is when I learnt that a truly inspirational group of women were actually physically climbing the Shard, all the way to the top to support what they believed in, in a protest for Greenpeace against oil and gas drilling in the Arctic.
So I no longer minded the helicopter noise! What an amazing achievement.
