A few weeks back a couple of friends of ours (Grace and Steve) were walking home from Islington way and they passed King Boris as he walked past The York pub just on Upper Street. This excited me and James no end as we’re avid fans of the wonderful Mayor of London, Mr Boris Johnson.
This afternoon we went for a lovely stroll along the canal to get some more festive decorations to finish off our festive house… and who did we see? No other than Boris himself, in the flesh! AMAZING. Not only did we see him, but he nodded, yes he ACTUALLY nodded and smiled at us. This is the definition of making someones year! So what was the first thing we did as he passed? We tweeted of course… then we got home to see this…
ACTUALLY beyond excited! I love Boris, long may he hail – infact, BORIS JOHNSON FOR PRIME MINISTER! Imagine the joy he would bring to everyones day if he were Prime Minister. IMMENSE. But yeah, if you read this Mr Boris, you are welcome to our festive house at any time of the year for a cuppa.
What a good day indeed!
Deary me, my social (media) life has gone somewhat downhill of late! I am officially horrendous at keeping in touch with you my internet world…
I’ve had a tremendously busy couple of weeks (or months, I cant keep count anymore!). I actually thought the time was 9pm as I’ve only just sat down after getting in from work and putting the tea on – but infact it is 10:49pm – woe is me indeed!
I just thought I’d write a quick catch up blog before, well, bedtime really!
Basically, I’ve been working hard and playing harder! Theres been fancy dress, fireworks and actual FIRE… and some lovely flowers too. Man, it’s been ‘fabulous’ for more of a better ‘f’ word. AMAZING. Anywhoo, I would post some pic’s but I’m currently being selective with my face (and my friends faces for that matter) and the internet. Just because there are some unkind folk who would prefer to have an over active imagination and not think about getting caught in the act. LOLZ indeed. But this is by-they-by.
Lots of exciting fashionable stuff going on at work and home. I have lots of recent purchases to share and restaurants to critque!
But for now, I am off to bedfordshire for I am shattered!

We’ve just got in from a lovely bicycle ride along the canal to Camden and back. We had an amazing picnic courtesy of Marks and Spencers in Regents Park and a Iced Latte a la Starbucks. Thanks! Had a crazily busy week this past week, lots to report on which I will indeed do so in due course!
So as aforementioned, work has been super busy! And I think this week will be even busier! Especially as its Bank Holiday Monday today, so we only have a 4 day week! Excellent! Loving work though, lots to do and it’s all very varied which keeps me very quiet… hah.
It’s been Notting Hill Carnival this weekend, we stayed away from it this year after getting lost in the crowds and high rise flats last year! Oh and the small matter of a dodgy stomach for 3 days straight after very dodgy Jerk Chicken! Sad times!
So expect several blog posts this evening as I’m having a proper catch up! Also, keep an eye out for my eBay posts, got 2 1/2 bin bags of brand new/nearly new clothes, shoes and accessories!

Terribly sorry to announce…we’ve moved house, again! So no internet for about 3 weeks! Rubbish! I’ll do what I can inbetween the lack of web and unpacking!
I will indeed be posting photos of said new house as we think it’s our best yet! 😀 We love it, and we love Angel Islington!
This is the view of Regents Canal from our living room window!
It literally takes 25 minutes to get to work for me, and about 8 minutes for James to cycle to work! Amazing! No more horrible commute, thanks TFL for nothing!

ALICE R.I.P: May 2006- June 2009.
It’s official, my absolutely beautiful little vintage bicycle, also fondly known as Alice, has died. Her chain broke on a trip to Tesco and because she is an antique no chain is replaceable. Of course I am beyond devastated as she is my pride and joy, however we have decided to keep her as an heirloom and I am now on the search for another bicycle. Alice is also not replaceable and never will be, but alas I must move on, and frankly I can’t afford TFL’s ridic prices, nor can I tolerate their lack of actual transporting. Therefore cycle power it is!
I’m after a little shopper – Alice, to be honest, was a little too big for me, hence why I fell off (I couldn’t touch the floor when I was sat on the saddle), something like the below would be perfect! I’ve got the basket off Alice, so having a basket on the front isn’t a complete necessity; nor is colour because I’m likely to spray paint the new bicycle gold 😀
I can collect from London (and surrounding areas) and can pay cash on collection or you could even have a listing on eBay and I can pay via Paypal and have you send it via courier – whatever is easiest 🙂
