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.

31/07/2012 – Mel and Mojito’s

My Sister came to visit today, and in order to celebrate Claire made mass quantities of Mojito’s! We didn’t have a ‘fancy’ jug, so we made it in a blender. You could never tell we were recently students… ‘ehrm’..

29/07/2012 – Batman Cookies!

An on-going joke between myself and Claire (my flatmate, if you haven’t already picked up on) is that our flat’s nickname is ‘The Bat Cave’ it is the name of the wireless, which obviously confirms it’s official status. Anyway, to the point, we made Bat Cookies! We used this recipe and they did not disappoint!  SoContinue reading “29/07/2012 – Batman Cookies!”
