04/03/2014 – Stairway to London’s Heaven

I did it! At 6:15am I set off to cycle to Tower 42 where I would be setting off at 7:30 to climb 600ft in steps (920, 42 floors).

I’m so pleased with my finishing time of 8mins56, I was aiming for under 15 minutes so I smashed that! I ended up the fourth fastest girl of my group, just a minute behind the fastest. It was all worth it for the breathtaking views though – an absolutely glorious day.

Then it was off to work! And with pancakes for dinner tonight, what a smashing day!

27/10/2012 – Day in London’s Sky

The first day of Mum’s treat weekend started off with a trip to St James’ park so we could play/pet the noses of the squirrels! They’re very tame, and I knew she’d like it! We then went to the London Eye which is always nice, and Mum’s first time! After that we headed to Vertigo – Tower 42’s Champagne Bar in East London – the views were amazing, definitely worth the hefty price tag for drinks, although you have to book in advance for a time slot. Finally, we got a taxi to Cotto, an Italian Restaurant that is well-known for dealing with gluten free dishes, it was fantastic, another well recommended place! Great, yet tiring day in all.
