Week 33: Last week in London

Monday, 31 Oct 2011 | Views [369]

A couple of months ago I wrote about trying and trying again until you succeed and though the week had barely begun I felt like a hypocrite. Here in London they’ve had a number of film premieres and after my failed attempt at seeing the Harry Potter  ... Read more >

Week 32: Which is about nothing

Friday, 28 Oct 2011 | Views [342]

The Queen wandered around my home country last week which I suppose it was only fair after I’ve been wandering around her home country for the last couple of months. Hearing about the Queen’s visit from a British point of view really makes me wish we ... Read more >

Week 31: Where I ironed tablecloths and folded napkins

Sunday, 23 Oct 2011 | Views [538]

London is very deceptive in autumn. When I see a sunny clear day where the leaves are still green on the trees I automatically think it’s warm outside but that is not always the case. After leaving the house several times with only a jacket and then ... Read more >

Week 30 which was spent being bored

Friday, 14 Oct 2011 | Views [510]

The most brain power I use all week is thinking of what to write in this here journal. When I’m actually travelling  it’s quite easy to write about the places I visit but when I’m in London, well sadly enough London’s like base camp for me, and there’s ... Read more >

Monday, 3 Oct 2011 | Views [431]

After whinging about how the weather always turns cold when I come back to London, the clouds decided to spite me and disappear for most of the week and the autumn weather was a lot warmer than it has been all summer. Now I finally understand what ... Read more >

Week 24: Come rain, hail or shine

Sunday, 28 Aug 2011 | Views [622]

It’s raining, it’s pouring and now it’s bright and sunny. Come rain, hail or shine is not a phrase I’m going to use again, especially in London because well, chances are it’s going to rain. When I got up early on Tuesday morning determined to get a ... Read more >

Week 22: In search of Beatrix Potter and Mr Darcy - The Lakes District and Lyme Park

Tuesday, 16 Aug 2011 | Views [1024]

It rains an awful lot in Cumbria. Driving up, the rain was coming down at a 45 degree angle and as our host pointed out, it really did feel like we were driving through a vortex. A vortex into a place that time forgot. . . or more likely, it rains too ... Read more >
