I walked the slightly longer, scenic route into work this morning from the station and it certainly didn’t disappoint. Whilst the wind was bitterly cold, the sun shone down and it was a beautiful walk along the river.
Today was great fun! Met up with a few people from work for lunch, and then we met up with a lot more of our company out on a massive pub crawl around London (totally 12 hours of drinking, but we only joined them for 6 hours of it). It was big laugh, and I had a great time. Managed to remember to take a photo, just by Fenchurch Street, as the sun was setting.
I was stood on our balcony this morning, trying to judge whether to wear a coat or not (spoiler alert, I should have), when I noticed this skyline. It was so foggy in London that it created this lovely outline of some of London’s famous landmarks. Such as the Gherkin (middle back, very faded), St Pauls Cathedral (far right), and the newest of all, the building site of the new Walkie Talkie (20 Fenchurch Street, far left). Although I do love a crisp, clear, blue skyline, I do love a damp, foggy morning also – there leaves a somewhat a hidden mystery.
P.S I’ve written a blog post on my ‘main’ blog! http://stephjonesblog.wordpress.com/
After work Nick and I went to the London Dungeons and the London Eye! I was very scared for the dungeons, I hate people jumping out on me, but it was amazing! We had such a good time, I definitely screamed a few times, but the rides were awesome, and the actors were very scary and funny. London Eye was great (my third time in two weeks!), though we did see a thunder storm while we were on it, which was a bit unnerving!
Today my sister and I met up for a day out in London. I managed to get another use out of my Merlin Annual Pass (I promise I’m not sponsored!) by going to London Aquarium! It was surprisingly not busy, and was a really nice break from the busy streets of London on a Saturday. We then went to Pizza Hut and ate more food than I thought was possibly. It’s safe to say I don’t fancy pizza again until at least 2013 (this isn’t a promise).
Today I took the first opportunity in using my ‘Merlin Annual Pass‘ and straight after work, I went on the London eye, twice! Once in the day time, while the sun was quite low (4pm), and it was difficult to get any good photos of Big Ben etc. And then again during sunset, which I must add, is the most amazing time to go on the London Eye. I recommend it so much, it was fantastic seeing the city slowly illuminate itself. I was wrapped up in my coat as it was chilly, already loving winter ! Screw the haters, it’s an awesome season. I’m working out a way of using my ‘other blog’ to display extra photos from certain days. So hold tight, these posts shall be expanding soon!
