Another week…

So, it turns out that I did not manage to write anything here last week at all! What did I get up to, I hear you ask? Oh hold on a minute, I can barely hear you there at the back my one reader 😉 Anyway, the week was a busy one; is there any […]

So it has been a while…

I have been more than a little remiss… What can I say, life has been a little bit busy, exciting and thoroughly enthralling over the last few weeks; where to begin? The first thing that came into my life that was new and is now __still__ exciting was the beginning of my new relationship with […]

Looking for excitement..?

If you are, then why not try cycling in Central London..? I’m still alive despite the best efforts of one hare-brained driver who decided to not check their blindspot when pulling out into traffic. Said driver not only exclaimed with shock that they had not seen me, but also that they had not noticed that […]

Why Tuesdays are often memorable…

Yesterday was a Tuesday, and although my assertion that Tuesday is the “crazy day” can only be supported by anecdotal evidence at best, yesterday is an excellent example of the sheer oddness that Tuesdays do often seem to subject me to… I had a “normal” day at work, even a normal (and utterly lovely) dinner […]

I saw a hero of mine on the Tube last night…

…but I was “trapped” at the other end of the carriage and rather as expected he got off the train at the next stop (Westminster). Still it was nice to see him and to see someone of his stature using the Tube rather than insisting on a car and driver. So without further ado, Lord […]

London by night, then into the belly of the Whale.,.

So, this evening I walked from work (the corner of Webber Street and Blackfriars Road), to Henry’s, a bar of some repute (though not greatly deserved as it turns out) just off the apple market in Covent Garden. I was there in order to join with some chums in the pursuit of levity in the […]

And for those that are interested…

Walking to work…

Well I had my first go at walking from Paddington to the office today, and I have to say it was really rather lovely… I mean I am knackered, and I’ve realised that this is not going to be a valid use of my morning when I need to meet someone straight from work in […]

Grey Monday…

Only people who commute to work via public transport can truly understand how completely depressing it is to wake up to grey skies and rain on a Monday morning. Why, you ask?Surely car drivers and pedestrians have as much to be depressed about; no one likes the rain. Well, here’s the thing; there is a […]

Things that you never thought you’d hear…

This morning my train into Paddington was quite badly delayed; this is not unusual… Anyway, just outside the station as we were waiting for the platform clearance the train manager came onto the tannoy to apologise, which he did and then during his patter he said: “…I’m afraid to say that the only good news […]
