29/09/2013 – Such a Familiar View

Ah the familiar scene of working on my iPad whilst the world flys past – I’m on my way back to London, it’s home time.
After a lovely weekend in Wilmslow I’m back riding the warm Northern underground line whilst writing this up. I have the strongest love/hate relationship with this city – it drives me mental with its packed tubes, fast paces and poor cycle lanes, but at the same time I seem to have quite the soft spot for it’s beautiful landscapes, quaint hidden streets and countless places to explore.
I fear I’m starting to fall in love with London… though knowing our relationship, we’ll be bickering by the week’s end.

04/09/2012 – Sunny Eye

It’s a break day for running today, so I decided to go for a cycle at lunch instead. I was going to head to Piccadilly to pick up my train tickets for friday, but I think it’s too far for an hours trip so I headed to The London Eye again and had a wander round. Stumbled upon Downing Street! And got a lovely sunny photo of the London eye, boiling hot today!

12/08/2012 – Olympics Closing Ceremony

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 a glass of wine. I adore fireworks, and seeing them splash out of the Olympic Stadium was nothing but a delight. Bring on the Paralympics!

11/08/2012 – Touristing Around London

 

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 on end! It was a great day, and I went off to get a few cliché photos I’ve always wanted. A really good Saturday all in all!

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’m such a rebel. Took this photo just before hopping on the train. It’s expensive, about £2.90 to get the tube home, which takes me 20 minutes to cycle! But today I was feeling lazy.

28/07/2012 – Walking around London

The weekend has arrived! And after a well deserved lie-in, Claire and I went on another explore around London. We walked to Mile End park first off to eat lunch, along the way we saw a large protest about a number of different causes, its exciting living in london and bumping into these things. After our make-do picnic we carried on walking and made it to Canary Wharf (took two hours all together) we then cycled home from Canary Wharf and had a relaxing evening in, lovely day!
