12/08/2012 – Olympics Closing Ceremony

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!

11/08/2012 – Touristing Around London

 

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!

06/08/2012 – Cycle cycle!

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!

04/08/2012 – We saw McFly! Loving life.

Claire and I went to see McFly today!! They performed in Hyde Park as part of the BT Live festival. And before anyone makes fun of me, I loved it, and don’t care! 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 upbeat music! Love it!
