Oh yeah – my weekend…

    Spent another great weekend in London, in the company of the gorgeous Marina…

    Saturday she threatened me with shopping, but I thwarted her plans by suggesting a drink in The Anchor pub beside the Thames:

    Really nice place 🙂 and as an alternative to shopping it certainly gets my vote 😉

    After a few pints in here (well, I had several pints, she had coffee and one glass of wine – basically her limit), we walked across the Millennium Bridge towards St Paul’s Cathedral – as it was getting dark, it looked exactly like this:

    This was the first time I’ve ever seen St Paul’s in real life – amazing huh? 41 years old and only just seeing some of the sights in the UK…(first time across the bridge too). I would have taken some pictures, but it was drizzly and I didn’t want to get my phone wet – besides, it was cold too, and my hands were buried deep in my pockets…

    – Content censored –

    Sunday was spent in another nice pub – The Angel Inn in Highgate:

    We had lunch here, and spent the entire afternoon just sitting there, reading the papers, drinking, and people watching – most relaxing 🙂 It’s a great place – and the barstaff were very friendly 🙂

    Having heard from Harriett (she was in London with her daughter at some concert in Earl’s Court) that the trains were running erratically, Marina dropped me off at Finsbury Park at about 7.30 so I could get the train home…

    Ah, Finsbury Park – just down the road from the shithole Emirates Stadium (where the gooner scum play) – and they played on Sunday there too – against Chelsea, so the whole area was full of gooners (fair made my skin crawl it did). A quick check on my phone revealed they’d been beaten 0-3 by Chelsea, so that put a huge grin on my face. Spurs got a late equaliser against Aston Villa on Saturday, so we move up to third, the table looking like this:

    Happy days 🙂 We go to Manchester tonight to play United in the Carling Cup quarter final. Redknapp has already said that a Champion’s League place is a priority over winning trophies this season…but even our reserves will want to win (or emulate Defoe‘s 5 goal glut last week 😉 ), so it should make for a good game…

    1. The scenery is so gorgeous and romantic. I guess you’re out of the slut game, snee? You sound happy with the lovely Marina. Carry on.

    2. The view across the Thames to St Paul’s IS lovely eh?

      I am happy…just have to figure out just how much so I guess – it’s scary.

      1. It’s gorgeous, really. And, you don’t have to figure anything out. Just enjoy the lovely Marina.

    3. Great photo of the view to St Pauls. And I’m presque 41 and have only seen St Pauls once. But there’s a reason for that. I’ve been to the Eiffel tower twice, but to Ayer’s Rock zero. Funny, innit?
