We went sailing on the weekend just gone. We were invited by Keryn’s ex-boss Trish to join her, her husband Nigel and Kevin who works in the IS department at Landsecurities. Nigel and Trish are the sailing experts and Kevin had previous experience while Keryn and I had…looked at a sailing boat from various ferries […]

"And that’s to laugh and smile and dance and sing"

We went sailing on the weekend, more on that later. Last night I travelled to Trafalgar Square after I finished work to take part in the world record attempt at creating the largest coconut orchestra. The event was a combination of a promotional stunt for the Spamalot west end show and a celebration of being […]

Alan and the Circus

On Tuesday night we attended a Circus event on the Southbank. Called Sequins and Sawdust it was a Circus with a story – kind of like a Cirque du Soleil performance done by students without most of the extreme feats of strength and agility.
