10/08/2012 – That Friday Feeling

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’mContinue reading “10/08/2012 – That Friday Feeling”

09/08/2012 – Things will work out

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 thatContinue reading “09/08/2012 – Things will work out”

08/08/2012 – CWW

It’s Cheap Wine Wednesday (I’m promising myself this won’t become a ‘thing’). A cheeky drink with a couple new friends from work escalated in meeting up with Claire and buying in some delightful “Tesco Value Spanish Rose Wine”. We regret nothing, it was a great night, thoroughly enjoyed with lots of singing, drinking, dancing and maple syrupContinue reading “08/08/2012 – CWW”

07/08/2012 – Whitechapel Gallery at Lunch

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!Continue reading “07/08/2012 – Whitechapel Gallery at Lunch”

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!

05/08/2012 – Olympics Blimp!

This has been floating around the Olympics Stadium since a few days before the opening ceremony. I’ve been meaning to take a photo of it for ages, and finally remembered! We like to think it’s just one man that’s been living in it since it ‘took off’.  

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 upbeatContinue reading “04/08/2012 – We saw McFly! Loving life.”

03/08/2012 – Work, work, work, play!

It’s Friday, which means I finish an hour early from work! Went out in London today with a couple guys from work, and it was really fun. Didn’t take any photos, but I did take this of my work notes book. The weekend is here! Excuse me while I sleep, a lot.

02/08/2012 – Olympic Village Outskirts

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”

01/08/2012 – London at Lunch

Another lovely day in London. Decided to get away from work for a bit, and cycled to London bridge for lunch and a relax. The views are lovely around here, and I’m still enjoying myself! It’s nice to have a proper break from the office on the grass next to the river.
