What happened: July

I made a deal this month that I would get out more in between my busy schedule and do nice summery things in London. And when you say British summer what springs to mind? Wimbledon of course! Being a bit of a tennis nerd, it does take over my life every July and so of course I couldn’t miss it. I worked pretty much six day weeks this month but managed to fit in quite a lot from trips to…

A trip back to Wimbledon

First of all, let this be a warning to you. I am crazy about tennis. So, given that it’s currently Wimbledon, I decided to head down to the All England Lawn Tennis Club and see if I could get in. Last Monday I decided to go after work like I did last year and see if I could catch the last match of the day. Well I picked the worst day didn’t I. Manic Monday. Along with the rest of…

Feeling Festive at Kew Gardens

I wanna wish you Merry Christmas! This is just one of those “I can’t believe it’s bloody Christmas” posts. But seriously, I mean it, I can’t believe it’s bloody Christmas. And so as people do when they feel the need to start being festive, I flocked to some christmassy spots in London this week and even dabbled in purchasing some ‘seasonal apple strudel Nespresso pods’. Get me being a sophisticated aduIt( Mate. They seriously taste the same. I don’t get…

The scariest slide in the world

A couple of weeks ago a friend of mine took me along with her to ride the slide at the ArcelorMittal Orbital inside London’s Olympic Park. The building was installed at the Olympic Park as another attraction for those who had come to witness the exciting events during the 2012 Olympics. Those visiting the park were able to purchase tickets and see the sheer size of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park for themselves. It was closed for some time and…
