London Undergound

Lisa posted on Facebook regarding our day out in that there London village, but here’s the basics:

I’d got tickets to sit in the audience of Blockbusters (can I have a ‘P’ please Bob?) which would mean we’d get tickets to see ‘A League of Their Own‘ (mmm, Georgie Thompson πŸ™‚ ).

Anyhoo, we got to London in time for some dinner in Covent Garden, (copy ‘n’ paste from Lisa now):

The journey from Vauxhall to Syon Lane was on the overground train and it just started to rain…We wandered to the studios to find all the access points totally locked up!! At this point the rain turned into a downpour and we were completely drenched…Looking very sad for ourselves we walked back round to the ‘main entrance’ (a bloody long way!) only to be told that we couldn’t go through that way and would have to walk all the way back to where we’d originally been!!

It was still raining heavily so Paul decided that he’d had enough!! To be honest, the thought of sitting in a studio totally soaked wasn’t very appealing (we couldn’t have been wetter if we’d stepped into the shower fully dressed!).

We decided to make our way home get changed and go for a beer! But by the time we’d got back to St Neots I was so cold that we ended up sat on the sofa watching tv with a cuppa!!

(end copy ‘n’ paste).

The only picture taken on the day was when Lisa nudged me on the underground to look at the ad above the guy sitting opposite:

If you look in the window reflection, you’ll notice Lisa making sure I’m taking the picture correctly and not photographing my eye (again)… 😐

Another great weekend

Saturday was spent laying concrete at my mum’s (that would be Bob and me) in the hot sun – at least we had a mixer this time (good job too, we used 1 tonne of ballast!). Got most of it done now, just a little bit more to do next weekend. Mum fed us too – woop, woop!

Sunday I went to London with Lisa and the girls (Carys and Kira). Was a lovely day wandering about, visiting The Clink and SeaLife.

Kira winds her mum up by saying “I’m hers” – here’s the pictorial proof:


EDIT: I changed my favicon too – it’s now an icon-sized version of this:

Monday, Monday…

Looking at my post count (and some of the comments πŸ˜‰ ), it seems it’s been a while since I posted.

Oh well…

Had a great weekend – spent it in London with Marina (there’s that name again). Friday night we spent in The World’s End pub in Camden Town – Friday night is music night, and the band was really good…few drinks there, then back to Marina’s (it takes longer to drive about 5 miles in London than it takes for me to travel by train home – about 65 miles).

Saturday started off very rainy, so we jumped on a bus (London public transport is great!) and went off to Islington and had a lovely pub meal in The York and watched the egg chasing rugby (very disappointing – England seemed happy to let Wilko kick us level rather than going for the killer tries – we ended up getting one anyway, so a result of 16-9 was good). A few pints of Guinness (for me – Marina had a mulled cider then switched to coffee – lightweight) later and we went to the cinema to see ‘Harry Brown‘ – great film, shows London’s estates as they really are πŸ˜‰ (I lived in New Cross, Lewisham a few years back for a couple of months). After the film, we went to another good pub (can you see a pattern emerging here?) – the Camden Head where we got rather drunk πŸ™‚ then back on the bus home…

Sunday was a great day – sunny and bright so we took a walk across Victoria Park and had breakfast watching the birds on the lake. I played with the squirrels (totally amazed Marina how I could get them so close and even on my shoulder πŸ™‚ – I’m good with animals, probably better than I am with people).

And so, back to work today – and guess what? πŸ™‚ I’m off to Spain tomorrow, back late Wednesday. Couple of hours work out there, then lots of me time in the sun topping up my tan πŸ™‚

I love my job…


Yet another great weekend

I went to London yesterday to meet up with a friend I’ve been chatting to for a while now – we finally managed to make a date where we were both in the country πŸ™‚

London makes me nervous (small town boy syndrome lol), but I had a great time – and so did she πŸ™‚ so we’re gonna do it again! woo! and yay!

She’s got the most amazing eyes I’ve seen in a long time, and is absolutely lovely πŸ™‚

So we sat in a really nice pub and had a couple of beers (well, I had beer – she drank wine…and got a bit tipsy so I got her a water after the second), and talked for hours – honestly, it felt like half an hour, but was more like 5…

And so it’s a happy snee at work today πŸ™‚ gotta go to the docs at 12 to see about my ear – I’m almost totally deaf in it now and it HURTS!

You know – I always thought of myself as a legs ‘n’ bum man, but I think eyes do it for me (preferably 2 πŸ˜‰ )
