Dieting is hard in this office sometimes, definitely on days where this is plonked on your desk! Not that I’m complaining too much, it was very generous of them and tasty! On a compltelly opposite note, I ran 4.4km this morning! The most I’ve ever done in one go, and I’m actually excited to go on my next run!
I promise not to do this much, the whole ‘filtered image’ thing (these are the tickets for an upcoming black tie event we’re designing). Today I made dinner for Claire and I, it turned out great, I was just too hungry and forgot to take a photo or anything – and I’m not a keen lover of ‘food photography’ when it’s nothing special, I’m not exactly the Masterchef. I promise tomorrow will be more exciting!
Our lovely friend Maria came to visit us today! Myself, Claire and Maria all studied graphic design together at Newport University, and now she’s moved to London, so it was lovely being reunited again. I forgot to take more photos, as I was too busy nattering, but I couldn’t help but take yet -another- sunset photo, the skies just too pretty here!
Well this certainly says it all. Tonight was the closing ceremony for the London 2012 Olympics. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed living in such a prime area for being surrounded by the Olympic atmosphere, and tonight was no different. After a lazy day around Bow, we decided to stay in and watch the ceremony from our balcony with a glass of wine. I adore fireworks, and seeing them splash out of the Olympic Stadium was nothing but a delight. Bring on the Paralympics!
Today was such a nice day! Claire and I went around London in search for Cream tea as we really fancied a day out in London, and scones! We eventually found some in the Tate Modern (and they were amazing!), after frolicking around in water fountains, watching a bit of the Olympics and walking miles on end! It was a great day, and I went off to get a few cliché photos I’ve always wanted. A really good Saturday all in all!
We have internet in the flat! I haven’t missed it too much as I’m in work most of the time, so I enjoy the break when I get home from technology, but it’s nice to be able to blog and browse a lot easier at home.
I got the tube home today, I know, I’m such a rebel. Took this photo just before hopping on the train. It’s expensive, about £2.90 to get the tube home, which takes me 20 minutes to cycle! But today I was feeling lazy.
This was put up in my office a few days ago by one of the developers I believe – love it.
My new job is going well, I’m very busy, but doing what I love, graphic design. I read a few months ago “Happiness is a journey, not a destination” – as corny as that sounds and normally the sort of quote that would be in Helvetica on top of an unrelated photo of the Eiffel Tower, I like it.
Too many times I feel like I’m working towards a final outcome where I’ll be happy, but I should be happy now, and living life now.
And last, to quote the amazing Monty Python. –
You’ll see it’s all a show,
Keep ’em laughing as you go.
Just remember that the last laugh is on you.
Took the opportunity to explore Aldgate East (where I work) a bit more today! In my lunchbreak I walked to the Whitechapel Gallery, and wandered around for a while. It was a lovely break from work, as there’s a lot of film work on display, so I could just sit down and watch art movies! Well recommended for a visit.
