Mr RJ used to work in the centre of London for Schroders right next to St Pauls, slap bang in the Square Mile and when we were reminiscing I only suffered a plot bunny attack!
As wikipedia says:
"... The City of London is a city within London. The City constituted most of London from its settlement by the Romans in the 1st century AD to the Middle Ages, but the conurbation has since grown far beyond its borders. As the City's boundaries have remained almost unchanged since the Middle Ages, it is now only a tiny part of the metropolis of Greater London, though it remains a notable part of central London. It holds city status in its own right and is also a separate ceremonial county.
It is widely referred to as the City (often written on maps as "City" and differentiated from the phrase "the city of London" by capitalising the word City) or the Square Mile as it is 1.12 sq mi (2.90 km2) in area. ..."
This plot bunny attack was quite vicious and left me reeling for a notebook and pen, neither of which I had on me... Never mind, I remember most of it!
The series will be called *Streets Of London* and book one is called *Square Mile*. Mistaken identity, love, drama and a happy ever after for my Investment Bank IT geek and the son of the owner of the bank...
