28/07/2012 – Walking around London

The weekend has arrived! And after a well deserved lie-in, Claire and I went on another explore around London. We walked to Mile End park first off to eat lunch, along the way we saw a large protest about a number of different causes, its exciting living in london and bumping into these things. AfterContinue reading “28/07/2012 – Walking around London”

27/07/2012 – Olympics Opening Ceremony!

So tonight we watched the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics, and it did not let us down! We really enjoyed it, and felt really patriotic! The fireworks were fantastic at the end, and this by far is my favourite photo I took! We didn’t expect the red statue to have fireworks also, greatContinue reading “27/07/2012 – Olympics Opening Ceremony!”

26/07/2012 – SLR Olympic Shot!

Finally got my SLR out to get a decent photo of the Olympic Stadium from our balcony, and I’m SO happy how it turned out! It’s really exciting being so central to all the Olympic events going on, I never thought I’d be this interested! (Sorry to anyone who’s not bothered! It’s only for anotherContinue reading “26/07/2012 – SLR Olympic Shot!”

25/07/2012 – Olympic Practise!

We’re lucky to have an amazing view of the Olympic Stadium, and although we’re both (my flatmate and I) not too interested in the overall Olympics, it’s hard to not get excited when you’re situated in the middle of it all! Last night they were practicing the lighting of the event! They’ve been doing differentContinue reading “25/07/2012 – Olympic Practise!”

24/07/2012 – Another Sunny Day

London’s (well, nearly the entirety of Britain) has been hit with a scorcher of a heat wave this week, and today wasn’t an exception. Another day of 30 degrees heat, and sunbathing during my lunch break. After work I did a huuuge walk with my flatemate Claire as we went to buy Timmy (the binny,Continue reading “24/07/2012 – Another Sunny Day”

23/07/2012 – Summer’s Arrived in London

After ‘the rainiest months since records began’ summer has finally hit Britain, and it’s boiling (and just in time for the Olympics)! I went out for half an hour of my lunch break today to just sit in the sun, and it was lovely. Loving all the other people sharing the small space of grassContinue reading “23/07/2012 – Summer’s Arrived in London”

22/07/2012 – Claire’s Arrival!

My flat mate Claire moved in yesterday, and it’s lovely having some company. I helped her move in and then we carried on sorting out the flat, before opening a bottle of wine, watching a movie and having fondue! Loving life again, so nice living with a girl for once! (If you follow my blog,Continue reading “22/07/2012 – Claire’s Arrival!”

21/07/2012 – Exploring London over Lunch

Wanted a cheap day out today, so after getting out of my PJ’s at 12pm (I deserved a lie in I felt..) I hoped on a Borris Bike (now learnt this is the ‘London lingo) and cycled to Tower Bridge to eat lunch on the grass. On the way, I was caught up in allContinue reading “21/07/2012 – Exploring London over Lunch”

19/07/2012 – The Bike Seats Have Hats!

Maybe this is normal to you, if you live in London, but to me, I ADORED this. I’ve been using the ‘Barclays Bikes’ to cycle to work each day. Well today, while I was in work, it rained. And when I got outside again to cycle home, all the bikes had little seat covers onContinue reading “19/07/2012 – The Bike Seats Have Hats!”

17/07/2012 – Loving the London Life

This weeks posts won’t be anything too exciting as I’m spending my time in work 9-5.30 and then getting to be quite early to gain back my energy! Last week totally drained me, so much has changed and happened, I’m looking forward to being more settled, but for now, a picture of our lovely balconyContinue reading “17/07/2012 – Loving the London Life”
