I had a nice surprise this morning when I got out of bed. I had a shower and went downstairs, turned on the TV and had a look at Sky Sport. What was playing? Waikato vs Wellington, live, and Keith Lowen from Waikato was in the process of scoring a try! Waikato went on to […]
Last night we went over to out old landlords new flat to pick up some keys so we could get the final gas and power meter readings at our old place. Actually, Selman doesn’t like the word landlord, we are friends instead. So we went and saw our friend, I should say. Selman and Kristina […]
Hello again. It’s a fine day in London. I think things will be quiet today as everyone remembers what happened this time last year. It still seems surreal to me, I remember watching events unfolding on the TV in the room behind me at work, watching that second plane hit the tower, unbelievable. On lighter […]
We’re moving house this weekend and I’m not sure when the phone gets turned on so it may be next week before we do anything on the site or are reachable by email. Our new address is: 73 Ribblesdale Avenue Friern Barnet London, N11 3AQ I’m not sure of the phone number so will post […]
Friday night it was the turn of The Feelers and Stellar*, both playing at the Shepherds Bush Empire. I met Keryn at the Great Portland Street tube station and we took the Hammersmith Line around to the Shepherds Bush station. Actually, we were lucky to get there on time. The Central Line was down all […]
So, last night we went to a concert at the Electric Ballroom in Camden. The sonic blast was provided by Garbage with support from Queen Adreena. We got there a little early to find the doors already open, which made a nice change from shuffling along in a line for half an hour or more. […]
As promised, one bunny photo. I may call him Alfred, I’m not sure.
The two sites we’re down to are Ross Priory, on the southern shore of Loch Lomond (North of Glasgow), and Dirleton Castle, east of Edinburgh near the coast. Both are lovely places, Dirleton being a ruin set in large grounds and part of a quiet village. Ross Priory is more of a house, again on […]
We’re back, safe and sound. Our week in Scotland was enjoyable and we’ve got a lot to think about. We’ve narrowed the choices down to two sites and two photographers. You can expect a proper update in the Wedding section during the next week. Again we’ve got a lot of film to have processed, so […]
We’re off to Scotland tomorrow, so things will be quiet for a week or so (unless we find an Internet cafe and have a spare 5 minutes). Hopefully the weather will hold and be like it has been in London the last few days. See ya later.
Last night was a warm, clear night (don’t get many of those this summer) and it coincided with the height of the Perseid meteor shower (learn more here), so I convinced Keryn we should go up to Alexandra Palace at about 10pm and see if we could see anything. We wandered around a bit looking […]
I got to Tottenham Court Road and walked down towards Forbidden Planet at around 4pm, the signing was meant to start at 5pm. A while back I went to a Terry Pratchett signing at Forbidden Planet and ended up in a line for two hours. The line when I got there yesterday was about three […]
