Tonight was the opening ceremony of the Paralympics! We know this from the amount of helicopters that have reappeared around Bow area, but we’re happy to see fireworks again. I’ll be sad when it’s all over, it’s been great fun. And I’m looking forward to catching some of the upcoming events!
Well the main Olympics are over for now, until a couple weeks when the Paralympics kick off! The stadium is certainly a lot quieter, but there still seems to be some life in it left! With the lights still on, I assume some practicing is being done for the soon to arrive Paralympics! How exciting,Continue reading “16/08/2012 – Retired Stadium”
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 aContinue reading “12/08/2012 – Olympics Closing Ceremony”
Tidied up the last tonight, found all of my Barclay’s Bikes receipts, seems like I cycle, a lot. In the… just over three weeks (wow) I’ve lived in London, I’ve hired a bike 32 times, not including the receipts I’ve just thrown away. My yearly bike ‘key’ should arrive tomorrow, fingers crossed!

It was amazing seeing them live, and I’ll be dead cold before I’ll turn down the opportunity to dance around in a field to some upbeatContinue reading “04/08/2012 – We saw McFly! Loving life.”
Claire and I went to Victoria Park today for ‘BT live’ after work. We went on the ferris wheel and saw some amazing views over London (annoying, I forgot my SLR, and my phone photos were quite poor). Whilst walking home we went a bit off route to see how close we could get toContinue reading “02/08/2012 – Olympic Village Outskirts”
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!”
