Arsenal vs Tottenham

Wednesday, January 31st, 2007

I live within spitting distance of the new Emirates Stadium. In fact I almost bought a season ticket last year after Rebecca my mentee and I got free tickets to see a Arsenal vs Liverpool game. Tonight walking home from work up Holloway Road was like walking into a riot zone. There were police vans […]

London Lawyers

Tuesday, January 30th, 2007

With Valentines Day coming up I decided to attend a speed dating event. This time it was City Professionals. I really don’t know why I go anymore as it is a bit like eating KFC. Every now and again you fancy trying it and then when you do although it’s ok you don’t really want […]

My mate Lisa is the makeup artist for the Italian presenters of the channel four Friday night Album Chart Show so she invited me along to Koko in Camden to the VIP area for the taping of the show. We got to see Klaxtons, Lady Sovereign, some other bands and The Feeling. Quite a few […]

Better at Bends

Sunday, January 28th, 2007

I had my second advanced riding class today. I felt like they ganged up on me as I had two observers which I was a bit nervous about as we were doing the ‘bends’ which is traditionally my weak area – I almost failed my DAS due to my bends. Apparently I have progressed and […]

Gherkin and Spa Pool

Saturday, January 27th, 2007

Saturday my flatmate Azra and I went cycling through the city and I showed her the base of the Gherkin which I discovered earlier in the week. Azra has just bought a folding cycle whose wheel size is closer to my roller blades than my bicycle as you cans see from the picture of our […]

No Bowling in Romford

Thursday, January 25th, 2007

On Thursday evening I was going to join the bowling my bike club had arranged in Romford but as my friend pulled out at the last moment I decided that it was too much to bike at night in the winter conditions by myself. I did ride my bike to work and it was snowing […]

Suddenly Snow

Wednesday, January 24th, 2007

Wednesday morning London woke up to a coating of snow. We haven’t seen so much since 2003. I had a lovely time walking to work taking photos as I went. I must admit that my new walk to work, though less than half the time it takes to walk to Hammersmith is not as nice […]

Copious Chores

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2007

At the moment life seems to be a never ending list of things I need to sort out. Including hanging a new curtain rail that arrived bent but the company that supplied it were ever so nice at sorting it out and rushing me a new one www.byretech.com. Now I just have to figure out […]

Canada Square Skate Rink

Monday, January 22nd, 2007

On Monday I attended a Network Canada evening. I have been on their email list for several years but have never managed to make it to one of their events. But seeing as how it was skating at Canada Square I decided it would be nice to try another London outdoor skating rink. The rink […]

No Internet Again

Saturday, January 20th, 2007

We lost our internet connection again. One of the pubs nearby has free wireless access but unfortunately the signal wasn’t strong enough for my laptop. I guess this is what it is going to be like when travelling. Intermittent internet access. Still I am not paying Orange each month to learn that.
