Our lovely friend Maria came to visit us today! Myself, Claire and Maria all studied graphic design together at Newport University, and now she’s moved to London, so it was lovely being reunited again. I forgot to take more photos, as I was too busy nattering, but I couldn’t help but take yet -another- sunsetContinue reading “14/08/2012 – Maria’s Visit!”
The weekend was really great, I loved it – it just one downfall, I hardly had enough sleep. So today, I was just knackered all day and nearly as soon as I was home I was tucked up in bed. This was my exciting evening – my wonderful bed.
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”
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 onContinue reading “11/08/2012 – Touristing Around London”
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”
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”
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”
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”
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!
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’.
