19/07/15 – After partying party

So turns out being ill AND hungover is horrendous, so I spent a large portion of today napping.. It seems my illness isn’t going away anytime soon and wants to get worse before getting better.. Oh dear. Later this evening we went to visit an old colleague and his family for a nice (sober) catchContinue reading “19/07/15 – After partying party”

18/07/15 – Lambeth County Show

Such a great day! Bumble bee face paint, Darren my dinosaur balloon, gallons of cider.. Even a cushion with a map of our area on it, because yes, even while partying I like to furnish my house.. The evening ended with me entirely losing my voice, even cider couldn’t save it in the end. PleaseContinue reading “18/07/15 – Lambeth County Show”

17/07/15 – Labyrinth under the stars

Well, I’m still coughing my lungs up like a 50-a-day smoker but that won’t stop me cracking on with life! Tonight Nic and I went over the road to Crystal Palace Park to watch Labyrinth at a Luna Outdoor Cinema event. It was such a lovely evening and we even saw quite a few starsContinue reading “17/07/15 – Labyrinth under the stars”

16/07/15 – Ladies who tapas

Feeling a smidge better than yesterday, I managed to not only make it into work but also back out for dinner! Though my husky voice could now woo any cold heart.. Ah the joys of a bad cold. But it was drinks and tapas for the lovely Alana’s birthday and I couldn’t be missing that.Continue reading “16/07/15 – Ladies who tapas”

15/07/15 – I wasn’t just tired..

… Turns out I was actually ill yesterday when I struggled with my run and cycle. Biked into work today feeling a bit groggy, only to go down hill pretty fast literally then figuratively as I only got iller and iller.. I left work early so I could get my bike home on the trainContinue reading “15/07/15 – I wasn’t just tired..”

14/07/15 – Happy Anniversary!

Happy week anniversary blog readers!.. Even just typing that makes me feel like a 10 year old in my first ‘long term’ relationship.. Please don’t break up with me at playtime.. On a slightly grander scale, today also marks three years of living in London! This last year has really been the best yet asContinue reading “14/07/15 – Happy Anniversary!”

13/07/15 – Soggy day for cycling

My commute to work consists of a 20 mile round trip cycle. Most days I love it, there’s a few steep climbs on the journey home but the rest of the ride is pretty easy going.. Today however, was not one of those days.. London is currently a soggy, damp, and not a fun placeContinue reading “13/07/15 – Soggy day for cycling”

12/07/15 – Third time ‘running’

7am start today for us as I ran the British 10k London Run (for the third year in a row) which kicked off at 9:35. Always a tough race as it’s normally sweltering, and today was no different. They have also changed the route to be more hilly and included 6 or 7 times whereContinue reading “12/07/15 – Third time ‘running’”

11/07/15 – It’s a good life

What a lovely Saturday I have had! Nic and I spent a lot of today bustling around the flat before taking a walk through the park to get tapas and sangria. I’ve been catching up on reading mostly as we have a busy day tomorrow with it being my second race of the year! Here’sContinue reading “11/07/15 – It’s a good life”
