This week I took my first trip to the O2. I’ve lived in London almost a year now, and there’s so much I haven’t done. I have done more since new year, but I still really need to get out and explore more. It was during the afternoon at work this week, and one of my friends wasn’t having the best of days, and to be honest I had been feeling a bit stressed and could do with a good girls evening so I decided we should go out for dinner. Two Options – Carvery or Harvester (Both great home comforts which are a little more rare in london). I found out there was a Harvester in the O2, so after work we jumped on…

Saturday evening played the second part to our adventure day. I did a quick bit of research in the week to find out what was on at the weekend in London, and stumbled across the street feast. Excited by the idea of doing something completely different, I decided this would be a great new experience. Street Feast is in Hawker House near Hoxton. We went to Bethnal Green station and walked from there. It only took about 10 minutes. When we got to the street my iphone maps said the Street Feast was on, I didn’t think we were in the right place, but we saw the Hawker House sign on the side of the building and what looked like bouncers stood on the door (I…

Before Christmas I went to see the second film of the hunger games…it was amazing! I decided I couldn’t wait for the next film so I wanted to turn back into the book worm I used to be and read the book. However, I couldn’t just read the third book. I’d heard the books were so great, that I wanted to read from the beginning. So I started with the first book : My mum and dad bought me the books as part of my Christmas present, and as January was so busy with starting my new job, I didn’t have enough time to read until late January. Even then though, the main time I get to read is on the way to work, and…

Yesterday was amazing. Having organised the whole day during the week before ( quite stressful – I don’t normally leave things to the last minute) I was so excited for Saturday to arrive. Alex didn’t have a clue as to what we were doing which made it all the more exciting. I almost did spill the beans on Friday night though, I think I get more excited than him sometimes. So for the first part of Saturday, in the afternoon (we both needed our lie in!) I had organised for us to go to the Lounge at Bayswater to see American Hustle. We turned up at Bayswater underground station and found the shopping centre very easily. The lounge is on the top floor, and I…

All day I’ve been reading soppy Facebook statuses and tweets, and seeing gifts come through the office for others – eughhhh. It’s not that I hate valentines day. I just think it’s overrated… A bit of a rip off, and I don’t understand why you’ve got one day a year where you’re told to show how much you mean to each other. Well today is the third valentines day I’ve been with Alex. I can’t believe it. Our normal valentines day would be just a standard night in, cooking together, but probably get on the wii and have a drink. Wii nights are some of my faves with Alex. This year we’re doing it a bit different. Tonight is a night in – curry’s cooking…
