My aunty came to visit me and Nic today. She braved the drive down and we all braved the walk into Crystal Palace for a roast dinner. If you really focus you can see the outlines of the London skyline – it was incredibly foggy today!
I’m seriously in love with the views from my new office. Today I went up to the 12th floor to get a couple shots during sunset and it was so worth it! I’ll never get bored of this!
I started my new contracting role today! It comes with this wonderful view which I certainly won’t get tired of whilst here. It’s been a busy yet successful day trying to get my head around everything. Also my sister got married! So whatever happened today, it was always going to be a good day ❤
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!
This year has flown by, yet at the same time seemed so long! I can’t believe it’s November already, but at the same time I can’t believe I was living in Newport only 6 months ago! After work I went for a walk around London, just as I do. I decided to go on the London Eye just before it shut – Benefits of this was it was very quiet and London was illuminated in the night time with a lovely glow. Bad side – couples, gross. Tested out iPhone 5 camera, and I’m impressed, PANORAMIC BABY!
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.
